LAST WEEK’S Top Commits

Mainnet Development Progress

Based on the steady performance of Nebulas mainnet go-nebulas v1.0.5, we further upgraded the response process of existing services to improve the stability. For example, we have added the input validation of the frequently used Bignumber in smart contracts, so that it can reject some unnecessary input in blockchain scenarios at an earlier stage. In addition, because of the dramatic increase in transaction volume on Nebulas mainnet (690,000 transactions on June 22nd, exceeding the average transaction volume of Ethereum by nearly 90,000), we have increased the bandwidth of the cluster network to provide better response speed.
