Taraxa Weekly Update — Week 47.

Fixing the node delegation bug on Taraxa public testnet, DAG-VDF optimizations.

Consensus and PBFT:

  • Fixed the issue of restarting all delegated nodes not able to resync.
  • Saved the PBFT consensus round and step in DB: when a node restart, PBFT round, and step continue to run.
  • Reviewed the code on the VDF omit.
  • WIP: EVM execution asynchronous with the PBFT consensus.


  • Added the VDF threshold omit functionality to reduce the average size of the DAG blocks and improve the performance.
  • Various minor VDF/VRF optimizations.
  • Removed the DAG frontier from transaction manager and separated retrieving transactions for a new block from retrieving tips and pivot.
  • Added a separate chain config-CMD line option.
