We have had a very successful dev cycle this past month, consisting of our partnership with OKEx subsidiary CoinAll (so far satisfying key requirements for an OKEx listing), developments of our Multi-Currency Light Wallet, Trezor integration and more. Here is an overview of some key highlights, and things to look to moving forward.
This month, we celebrated listings on 3 new exchanges: CoinAll (OKEx partner), ABCC and Folex. XSN/BTC trading is live on all 3 exchanges, and we now have our first USDT pairing on ABCC. Our listing on OKEx subsidiary, CoinAll, has come with great success as we have been averaging in the top 3 over the past 2 weeks of newly listed projects by volume. This is significant to us as it satisfies one of the key requirements to list on OKEx. We are in direct contact with their team to make sure any and all requirements are satisfied to list.
Stakenet 1st Birthday
On March 5th, we celebrated a year since the Stakenet blockchain was born, an exciting project milestone. To celebrate the occasion, we looked back at our achievements and key developments from the first year of the project. If you haven’t had a chance to yet read the article, give it a read here.
TPoS Support on Trezor
XSN will be supported on the upcoming Trezor firmware update! Our developers have successfully been cold staking using TPoS from the Trezor hardware wallet. We are completing the UI for TPoS now and will have integration into our upcoming light wallet thereafter. Ledger TPoS integration will be on the way as well.
Multi-Currency Light Wallet Testing Progress
The team initially completed testing of version 0008 of the new Multi-Currency Light Wallet which will be dubbed the “XSN Viper”. This was previously the name used for our hardware product, which will now be referred to as “XSN Viper X1”. Viper and Viper X1 are both being designed to interoperate providing a cohesive package of ease of access tools and software for end users using blockchain technologies.
Now, the team has completed version 0009 of the Multi-Currency Light Wallet which has sync optimizations and bootstraps to allow fast and smooth sync times and usability. This was the last major dev task before we can begin public testing, which will be launched this upcoming cycle.
We were also able to complete Lightning Swaps this cycle along with activation of our “one-click” swaps. These were done and integrated into our wallet using the lnd client which is being architected to operate with neutrino. When neutrino is released these will be immediately integrated into the Light Wallet, ready for real-world use for one-click instant DEX trading.
Look for further announcements and updates on our upcoming Viper line of releases, including private testing and showcasing as we near the official launch.
Smart Contract Integration
XSN-Core team has conducted analysis on various smart contract platforms and architectures this past cycle. We have found code/ecosystems our developers prefer and have planned to integrate smart contract support/dApp infrastructure directly into our Light Client. We are excited about the future of smart contract/dApp’s and believe they have great potential for disruption within the blockchain space and beyond, having a plan for both smart contract and dApps in our Light Wallet will position our project to be a leader at the forefront of the dApp ecosystem as it gains popularity and adoption.
We have launched a new forum section on our website where we have open discussion boards for general Stakenet discussion, developments/technical, dApps/services, Masternodes and staking, XSN Cloud and Stakenet.io website suggestions. As well as launching the new forum, the update release included increased mobile device compatibility, an update to the FAQ and a refresh of the overall website design. Be sure to check out our new forum here!
