Mainnet optimization has been progressing well and we have implemented improved serialization and deserialization operations on the mainnet; we have also been testing improvements to data synchronization on the network. In the meantime, we have been preparing for the release of Nebulas 2.0!
The beta version of the GoNebulas Platform (Nebulas Collaboration Platform) is about to be released to the community. Via this platform, everyone will be able to see projects the Nebulas team is working on. We are making development more transparent to the community.
Testnet DIP Program: Only one week left
From January 21, 2019 to March 31, 2019, you can deploy smart contracts on the Nebulas testnet and engage test users (or conduct various types of test transaction) and receive a Developer Incentive Protocol (DIP) NAS rewards!
The total reward amount for the Testnet DIP Program is about 2,500 NAS. The rewarded testnet tokens will be converted into NAS after the DIP goes live on Nebulas NOVA mainnet.
The development experience has greatly improved NR, DIP and inter-contract calls which can be done on the Nebulas NOVA testnet. Everyone is welcome to deploy a smart contract on the testnet to share the reward!
Research Institute Seminar
On March 21, 2019, the Nebulas Research Institute hosted a seminar introducing the latest research about market manipulation of Bitcoin.
The paper titled “Market Manipulation of Bitcoin: Evidence from Mining the Mt. Gox Transaction Network” has been accepted by IEEE INFOCOM’2019, which is a high level conference on networking. Co-authors of the paper include Weili Chen, Jun Wu, Zibin Zheng, Chuan Chen, and Yuren Zhou (Sun Yat-sen University). The team used both static network analysis and temporal network analysis to find evidence of market manipulation in Mt. Gox transaction data.
