QuarkChain Monthly Project Progress Report: January, 2021

Dear Community Members,

Welcome to the 61th QuarkChain Monthly Report (January, 2021). We will post monthly reports including development progress, monthly news, and events at the end of each month. In the future, QuarkChain strives to do better. Let’s review what happened in the past month!

1) Development Progress

## Updated

  • Implemented parallel transaction execution to test its influences on block running efficiency on goquarkchain
  • Implemented and tested EIP-2930 “access list” to understand the impacts on block import
  • Optimized machine’s resource usage when importing large amount of blocks on node clients

2) Recent news

With the development of QuarkChain’s token swap, ERC20 QKC will be gradually deprecated from circulation. For users who need to manage large amounts of QKC, they will need more secure wallets except for the mobile wallet and plug-in wallet. The hardware cold wallet is the best choice. In order to allow users to better manage their assets, we have reached a cooperation with CoolBitX, the well-known hardware wallet manufacturer. With the launch of QuarkChain’s mainnet 2.0 Bigbang, CoolBitX’s CoolWallet S will be able to support the storage and transfer of the mainnet QKC token.

PANews, one of the most influential Chinese crypto media, together with famous data agencies and industry media, held the first PARTY (PANews’ Retrospect of The Year) election. This selection has 7 categories and 19 prizes. After more than one month of review and vote, 120 projects/enterprises and 46 individuals finally won various awards of “PARTY AWARD 2020”. QuarkChain was selected for its flexible multi-chain heterogeneous function and multi-native token function, and was awarded the annual most technologically innovative public chain award.

Despite being a tough year, QuarkChain is coming out of 2020 step by step. We put our main events and activities of last year together, and made the annual video, reviewing QuarkChain’s highlight moments for last year.

3) Past Events
