TL;DR

Dear human nodes, it’s time for our regular biweekly report on Humanode! Let’s have a short overview of the news and events that occurred over these two weeks.

Humanode development continues all the way! During these weeks, Humanode teams were working assiduously as always, making significant progress with current tasks. The progress was minutely shared in their regular development update

As for the network development, they added a subcommand to generate and inspect Ethereum key, added missing unit tests to verify all possible cases of robonode logic at HTTP transport layer, introduced bioauthentication id, fixed cargo sor, defined AccountId key type primitives for keystore logic, renamed KeystoreAccountId to KeystoreBioauthAccountId and BioauthId to KeystoreBioauthId, moved KeystoreBioauthId outside the CLI to the service mod, and done proper unwrapping of extracted AccountId.

As for the Web App, the team Added text to enroll button, updated FaceTec SDK, and added check FaceTec SDK status before initializing.

Considering crypto-biometric search and matching and liveness algorithms, the team removed docstring pylint warning, added changes suggested by pylint to test-parameter-generator script, and added VS Code settings.

As for OAuth, the team, initialized CI flow, added the eslint dependency, and migrated the dependencies to Yarn 3.

As usual, the Humanode Fireside talk took place in the Humanode Telegram voice chat. The team discussed the power of authority. Listen to the recording on the Humanode Podcast, and join the team on Wednesday for the next conversation!

Human nodes, that’s all for today! Have a wonderful weekend!

Humanode testnet

Humanode Testnet V2 Public Beta

The Humanode testnet V2 ‘Shamshel’, the 1st major upgrade that greatly improves the UI/UX, is open to public testing.

As a reminder, this is not an incentivized testnet. You will not become a millionaire overnight while waiting for a mysterious airdrop. Instead, your pseudonymous biometric identification will be written down in history and may get a chance to slide in to become a human node for the mainnet that is scheduled to launch sometime mid-next year. You may also be able to gain opportunities to suggest, join, or get involved in various Humanode projects, and you may get a shot at some surprises down the road.
