Weekly Dev Update #79

THORChain Weekly Dev Update for Week 79, 26–31 Jan; Redeployed Testnet, final preparations in ASGARDEX, ZCash and Dogecoin bridges scoped, Litecoin, Bitcoincash support in XChainJs

Summary

The multichain testnet was prepared and deployed, but subsequently relaunched after a decimals-handling issue was found on Ethereum. It was then relaunched again, after Rinkeby Ethereum was found to be too difficult to get testnet funds (which are crucial to a well-functioning testnet). The new net is now synced to Ropsten. The team was successful in accumulating significant quantities in testnet assets (Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash) from a helpful community member.
