Taxa Monthly Highlights for December 2021
We wish everyone a happy new year! Below please find the monthly highlights for December.
- Imported new libraries into Pyxa:
Keccak hash library — a commonly used hash algorithm in blockchain protocols such as Ethereum. It also offers a more light-weight solution on EVM smart contracts to verify messages’ genuity from tServices (using hash instead of ECDSA signatures).
json.encode — a feature that was temporarily taken off due to previous bugs. Now it’s re-implemented and added into the json library.
- Researched and refactored 2 libraries on MacOS version of taxa-client (Libcrypto and libippcp), resolved the previous bugs on AES encryption’s padding errors.
- Public mainnet’s mining mechanism and miner fee module in testing.
Taxa Developer Grant Program:
We are pleased to introduce the Taxa Developer Grant Program. The goal of the Program is to grow the Taxa ecosystem, foster a dynamic Taxa developer community, and encourage creative applications built with the Taxa platform.
The Program consists of multiple phases so as to help developers to kick start their development journey with Taxa, and by accomplishing the challenges of each phase developers shall earn their chances to receive the award granted by Taxa.
Phase I aims at helping developers kick start with the first step of developing with Taxa: set up the development environment, and communicate with tServices. Each winner will receive 7,000 TXT, until the total award pool of Phase I is all consumed.
