Taraxa Tech Update — Week 19

More fixes and updates delivered to Taraxa’s Testnet.

PBFT Consensus and Execution Schedule.

  • Simplified the voting next round in two states — the finish state and the finish polling state. This eliminates the overlap state operation and makes each single PBFT state independent.
  • Sent out the pull request, now ready for merging into the master branch.

Throughput optimization

  • Implemented changes in the network and full node test to simplify tests and move repetitive code in the util section.
  • Work-in-progress: making the tests run faster by significantly reducing the DAG and PBFT block proposal time, which causes some of the tests to fail.
  • Work-in-progress: looking for bugs in the tests and in the actual code to figure out what exactly causes those fails.

Concurrent EVM

  • Clean-ups and refactoring in the node and Taraxa-Aleth for the CPP-Ethereum fork.
  • Work-in-Progress: integrating the go API in the node.
  • Work-in-Progress: tests for the node code related to executing transactions and managing executed blocks.
