On Monday, it was announced that the GIN testnet had been updated with the superblock functionality for the GIN Foundation and Freighter Fleet budget allocations. First superblock was scheduled at block 32350 on testnet.
All testnet node runners were required to update the node by compiling the latest master (no binaries are released). No action was required from mainnet node runners.
The superblocks started successfully on Testnet, so the work continued on the Mainnet superblock support to be released along with the Komodo notaries update.
It’s the last report of May!
Today we have released support for continuously running workloads on the GIN Freighter Fleet. The code has been distributed to the freighters and we are waiting for all alphas to update to start distributing test workloads that run continuously (daemons) and get renewed from time to time. This is one of the important differentiators between our work with GEA and similar “distributed datacenter” projects: the ability to run services, not only jobs.
Note: GINware’s Ledger Nano S support has been submitted for official review by the Ledger team, and according to their current pipeline, a release should be on its way to the Ledger Live Manager in due time. Until then, you can use the alternate method described here.
And had a blast.
Here’s the beginning of their journey.
The subject of new Staking as a Service (StaaS) companies was discussed.
They sent us updates from day 2.
They met with Radix CTO Dan.
And with Justin from DAPS.
They enjoyed New York by night.
And took cheeky selfies by day.
We’re eagerly awaiting more photos, news, and info.

What is Crypto Hunter?
Developed by Swyft (SATC coin), Crypto Hunter is here to deliver a fun educational experience in helping users with masternode setups, tools, and sharing community apps/videos, all through its gameplay, while also connecting businesses to the touch point of everyday users through the Apple Store and Google Play.
If you kept your eyes on the Freighter Fleet real time explorer (https://freighters.ginplatform.io/) you have probably noticed new activity, especially CDeploy and CResult messages which seem to popup from time to time. This is because the test Cargo has just started running on the Freighter Fleet and the map lightens every 15 minutes when new batches of Cargo are deployed. We also put together a new stats panel so you can see the activity in real time. It’s right in the bottom left.
Currently, it shows:
Cargo deployed 7827
Active Freighters 19
Total CPUs 29
Total Memory 55 GB
One of our busiest weeks (and months) EVER.
GIN was the first platform where everyone could deploy a masternode, without any tech skills. Currently, there are 128 masternode coins supported by the platform. And counting.
GIN is determined to stay true to its principle of constant innovation. That is why the GIN Platform becomes the first one to support deployment of ERC20 masternodes.
The first ERC20 masternodes available on the GIN Platform are AURA nodes. These can be built effective immediately.
Pricing wise, the AURA nodes are a bit more expensive than other nodes on the platform, due to…
