Dydx, Kava, MultiversX

In June, Luganodes has new validator nodes live on 1 testnet and 2 mainnets.

1. Dydx: We are live on dYdX testnet as a genesis validator, supporting their mission to democratise access to financial opportunity. The public testnet is an opportunity for users, validators, and market participants to test and provide valuable feedback on the v4.

2. Kava: Our validator nodes are now live on the Kava mainnet, a Layer 1 blockchain that combines the best of Ethereum and Cosmos SDK. Their co-chain architecture allows developers to build and deploy projects with seamless interoperability.

3. MultiversX: We are live on the MultiversX mainnet, supporting its groundbreaking adaptive sharded state architecture and secure Proof of Stake consensus mechanism which allows for high scalability, efficiency, and security in blockchain networks.

  • Accurate timestamping of refreshed votes
  • Smoother execution of bank_send_loop
  • Enhanced network connection reliability with QUIC Retry packets
  • Optimised logging for a cleaner experience
  • Improved processing of refreshed votes

Luganodes’ Participation in Aptos Governance Proposal

Luganodes has voted YES to re-enable the new signature checker in the latest Aptos governance proposal.

It is not only more efficient but also fixes a bug in the old implementation. This bug could potentially allow the publication of programs with certain invalid types, which is a significant concern for the community.

Fortunately, the bug has been patched in the compiler, ensuring that users won’t run into any issues related to it. This enhancement brings a higher level of security and reliability to the platform, which is crucial for a seamless user experience.
