Biweekly update vol.9, 16th June — 30th June

Welcome, all crypto and blockchain communities, to Paradigm’s regular update on Citadel, all-in-one interface for decentralized finance! There was a ton of big stuff over the past two weeks for you!

For those, who aren’t familiar, Citadel is a multi-asset non-custodial platform for the management and storage of crypto assets. One of the main functions of the service is participating in the PoS consensus. The Citadel allows you to delegate crypto assets, analyze market conditions and transaction status, as well as create several cryptocurrency wallets using a single seed phrase. Moreover, the software part is configured so that all private keys are stored encrypted on your device.

The Citadel team is operating extremely hard on the major releases as a very significant milestone is about to happen! The launch of the stable version of Citadel 1.0 is near at hand! As part of the latest development report, the Citadel team has shared what they’ve been working on over the past two weeks. Firstly, they updated calculation logic to display exact balance values, rewards and staked funds, and optimized the work with transactions stored in the Ethereum database. As for front-end tasks, the Citadel developers optimized the balance and rewards charts, and updated several interface modules and fixed minor bugs. The team continues to work on integration with Trezor wallets, creating a BTC wallet, saving a backup file and restoring wallet data from it. Considering mobile development, they implemented sending and viewing transactions in Ethereum, USDT, Orbs, Tezos, and ICON. Currently, the team is working on adding an IOST wallet.

These weeks, the Citadel Founders had a series of calls with validators (stakefish, block42, ICX Station). Moreover, they demonstrated an alpha-test of Citadel to the IOST and the Orbs teams. Some exciting news to come!

As for the social side, the Citadel team regularly attends community events. These weeks, they were at ‘Cosmos Unchained: Cosmos vs Ethereum 2.0’. In this live meetup Chjango Unchained, Sunny Aggarwal, and Danny Ryan discussed the differences between Cosmos and Ethereum 2.0. The team took part in CosmWasm 8th bi-weekly community call. They also joined Cosmos developers to see a relayer demo and ask IBC engineers anything and everything about IBC. On June 25th, the team was at Ethereum Staker Community Call #7. The general topic was “defining the Ethereum Staker community”.

And last but not least, the Citadel marketing team has prepared a little quiz for you with five not so simple questions that will help you identify your favorite cryptocurrency and blockchain personality. Click here to pass it and let them know your results in the Citadel Telegram chat!

About Citadel

Citadel is an all-in-one interface for decentralized finance that allow you to:

1. Participate in DPoS consensus. Citadel service is a crossroads of ways leading to crypto networks such as Tezos, Orbs, ICON, IOST. Unlike the Proof of Work (PoW) consensus, where only miners producing blocks receive rewards, in Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) everyone receives rewards depending on the degree of contribution (the number of tokens staked). Citadel makes the staking process even more convenient — your new tokens are automatically delegated and contribute to the system, thereby increasing your yield.

2. One-seed. Creating one account and mnemonic phrase for access to all wallets in the app. There is no need anymore for storing dozens of seed-phrases and private keys to participate in staking. Citadel gives you one to rule them all.

3. Financial dashboard. Track some KPIs like reward history, balance history, chart analytics, the status of transaction.

4. Take part in voting. Participate in the life of community via smart-voting system.

5. Deploy cloud nodes. An option that allows you to launch your own node without needs of buying a server or writing a single line of code.
