Cudos Labs: development update! (05/05/2022)

Here’s what we’ve been working on:

Last week:

Cudos Network

  • We’ve concluded and addressed all failing tests for upgrading the Cosmos SDK to version 0.45.3.
  • We’ve concluded and merged the PR to upgrade CosmWasm to version 1.0.
  • We’ve been documenting the steps and scripts needed to join any Cudos Network instance for the past few weeks.

IBC module

  • We’ve reviewed, fixed and merged the PR for the Hermes relayer upgrade to version 0.13 and the IBC module upgrade to version 2.2.0.
  • We’ve completed research on the IBC orchestrator’s role and what happens to an expired IBC client and explored the possibility of reusing it. All findings have been documented.

Gravity Bridge

  • We kicked off a third-party, community-driven security audit with Code4rena on our finalised version of Gravity Bridge. We’re currently monitoring the progress and remain ready to implement any new findings.

Explorer Updates

  • We’ve continued with bug fixing and improvements for the Explorers. These include:
  • Gravity transactions visualisation in Explorer v2 — Improved UX.
  • Random values in weighted-vote might cause a total vote overflow
  • Cudos Dashboard requires an easy way to get all validator delegations — We needed a drawback of the delegation entity.

MultiSend Dapp

  • We’ve completed the setup of a MulstiSend Dapp to easily allow token holders to send tokens to multiple addresses at a time.
  • Several UI elements from the Cudos Dashboard have been extracted to maintain a similar UI style.

Current week:

  • We’ll be supporting the Gravity Bridge audit.
  • We’ll be making preparations for subsequent network upgrades. Several important decisions have to be taken here and will be discussed.
  • We’ll carry out tokenomics testing.
  • We’ll finalise the MultiSend Dapp.
  • We’ll be finalising and deploying the first 3 pages of the Cudos Dashboard (Wallet Connect, Dashboard Page, Validators Page) so that we can start proper testing there.
