The Crust “Profit Ark” incentivized testnet has run smoothly for 7 phases. As the “Profit Ark” enters the later stage, the development team will focus on the main function of the Crust Maxwell Pioneer Network. The development team has completed the Token’s centralized bridging scheme design and partial code writing, so that the Crust ERC20 Token can be bound, secured, mortgaged, and transferred on the Maxwell pioneer network. At the same time, the development of Crust’s core function, the decentralized storage market, is basically completed, and it is currently entering the testing phase.
