Weekly Dev Update #78

THORChain Weekly Dev Update for Week 78, 19–25 Jan; Litecoin, new Testnet, final preparations in ASGARDEX, upcoming releases for Community Products, ethereum support in XChainJs

Summary

Synth fixes to multichain, as well as adding Litecoin. A new testnet was prepared and deployed:

Midgard: https://testnet.midgard.thorchain.info

THORNode: https://testnet.thornode.thorchain.info

Seed Service: https://testnet.seed.thorchain.info

The team are preparing the network and wallet for an orderly public rollout with support for BTC, ETH, BCH, LTC and BNB chains. Expect this later this week or early next week.

THORNode

Multichain patches, including some updates to synths (prefix, virtual depths, redemption whilst staged).

In addition, the need to attach a coin for deposit requests is removed (no need to send 0.00000001 RUNE for a withdrawal etc).

Litecoin was also added.

Midgard

Work continues to prep Midgard V2 to handle Multichain requirements.

XChainJS

https://xchainjs.org

Ethereum was merged as a package. It supports Rinkeby.

BitcoinCash and Litecoin will be implemented next.

  • Bitcoin: Deployed to testnet
  • Ethereum: Deployed to testnet
  • BitcoinCash: Deployed to testnet
  • Litecoin: Deployed to testnet
  • Cosmos: Under review — considering moving to IBC implementation
