Biweekly update vol.14, 24th December — 8th December

TL;DR

Greetings, crypto community! I hope you are having a good holiday season! Now it’s time for our detailed recap of all things Humanode! The last two weeks were part of a wild ride full of hard work and worthy contributions — so let’s have a short overview of the thrilling news that has appeared lately.

First and foremost, the team announced a public sale! In a short film named ‘Break the cycle’ published this week it is said that the sale is expected this summer! Stay tuned for more details!

The great news is, the Humanode testnet V2 ‘Shamshel’, the 1st major upgrade that greatly improves the UI/UX, hit 1200+ validators (1206 at the time of writing). And this is just the beginning! Join the testnet, and immortalize your existence as one of the first human nodes in history!

In a recent development update, the team has shared what they’ve been working on over the past two weeks.

As for the network development, they corrected End To End Testing, set the output of the public key as hex instead of SS58, and updated testnet documentation on Github and Gitbook.

The team continues their work on the desktop application. These weeks, they кefactored socket info, uгsed 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost in tunnel, reduced sentry errors, improved WSL status workaround, and updated Squirrel installer.

Considering crypto-biometric search and matching and liveness algorithms, they added and updated editorconfig file, added training and inference code for motion analysis-based liveness detection, and tested facebagnet and fishnet for accuracy comparison.

Other than that, the Humanode Fireside talk took place in their Telegram voice chat. The team discussed all things DAOs and how Humanode empowers them. Listen to the recording on the Humanode Podcast, and join the team on Wednesday for the next conversation!

Take a look at Humanode’s milestones including 2 testnet launches, ecosystem partnerships, and team scaling. More details in the blog!

Humanode’s fresh blog post discusses the project’s use cases. From the use cases of OTC markets to DIDs to airdrops, discover how Humanode enables Sybil resistance on any blockchain, by having a proof-of-human-existence protocol based on liveness detection.

That’s all for today! 2022 is expected to be an incredible year full of events! See you on-chain!

Humanode testnet

Humanode Testnet V2 Public Beta is Live

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 incentivised 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.
