It is a great pleasure to announce the final release of the alpha stage of the OriginTrail network, and the release candidate (RC) for the test network, the Lunar Orbiter v1.0b-RC. This means we have wrapped up the initial feature set of the protocol and will be — 11 days from now — launching our first beta release.

A Quick Look Back

All of the main protocol components have been iterated upon in at least two major versions: the bidding mechanism has been completely revamped from the first implementation; the compensation mechanism has been vastly extended; the network layer, based on Kademlia, has received a full overhaul; and, the data layer has seen major standardization improvements, both in terms of GS1 and Web of Things standards.

The Beta Release Candidate: Lunar Orbiter

When it comes to the zero-knowledge implementation in the ODN, the Lunar Orbiter now supports quantity validation across several events in the observed supply chain, with the ability to have them be reported in arbitrary stages of their execution, across multiple XML files. This is an important improvement from the previous version and presents the first full implementation of the zero-knowledge quantity balance mechanism. To utilize the feature, the GS1 XML creation needs to be updated to support it, and will also be explained in detail in our documentation.

Eleven Days Until the Testnet Release

In the next stage, we are expecting a larger scale deployment of the network, with more Tracers joining the system and enabling the observation on market mechanisms to take place. We are looking forward to testing out the assumptions and beginning to iterate further in this aspect of development.
