TOP Network Biweekly Report: March 4— March 17
On March 11th, TOP Network CMO Noah Wang was invited to participate in the online live broadcast of Stanford’s “College Campus Tour NO.1” to talk about the Blockchain technology. During the live broadcast, Noah discussed the prospects and potential of the blockchain technology with Stanford Chinese students. As the first stop of the “TOP College Campus Tour,” it was a great success. We believe that this event helped in getting more University students interested in the blockchain technology.
March 11 turned out to be a pretty busy day for Noah as he was also invited by Golden Finance to give a talk on “The Staking Economy.” During the talk, our CMO comprehensively explained the Staking economic model and introduced TOP Staking to community members. Although the event was marred by the Coronavirus, whoever attended got a lot of value from it.
NOTE: Coronavirus will not stop us from raising awareness about TOP. We will continue to spread our message throughout the pandemic via online interviews.
1. What difficulties did you encounter while developing the mainnet?
Both our teams in China and the United States were definitely affected by the coronavirus. In fact, some of the core personnel in the Chinese team were trapped in Hubei due to travel restrictions.
Plus, the staking we initially launched was done via Ethereum and its smart contracts, which had to be migrated to our native chain. Speaking of TOP’s smart contracts, the business logic of our staking smart contract is exceptionally complex. While we have painstakingly tested each and every module, it can still be really challenging since the staking system requires multiple smart contract to work with each other synergistically. Since these contracts are distributed in different shards, it can be difficult for them to call each other during runtime.
2. Is the technical roadmap fully fleshed out?
-Well, the coronavirus pandemic has forced us to delay the technology by at least one month.
-BitVPN has achieved user on-chain docking and deployed verification on the test network to prepare for traffic import
3. Can App users migrate to the public chain this month?
After the official version of the mainnet is launched, BitVPN will regulate the introduction of users through grayscale policies. These users will be allowed to hold some tokens. Later on, they will be able to conduct transactions using these tokens.
4. What plans does TOP have for blockchain game development?
TOP’s blockchain game App is under intense development and is expected to be launched by April-end. In the beginning, we will be inviting friends from the TOP community to experience and test it out. After the TOP mainnet mapping is complete, the game will be fully open to all TOP users, and everyone will be able to directly participate in the game and interact with each other.
On March 18th, TOP will participate in a live broadcast hosted by Golden Finance. We will be joined by the likes of Conflux and Quark Chain to talk about public chains. Public chains are currently facing two significant problems — technical and uncertain application landing prospects. What is the future development direction of the public chain? How can one break through these two obstacles? In this live broadcast, we will be talking about all these burning issues.
On March 19th, Noah will host an online AMA with BetaEx CEO Max.M. The central theme of the AMA is to discuss how the blockchain industry will change in the near future due to the current market situation. Are you interested in being a part of this discussion?

About TOP Network
TOP Network is a decentralized blockchain ecosystem composed of 4th-generation public blockchain, decentralized Apps (DApps) and decentralized communications services.
TOP Chain, the public blockchain infrastructure underpinning the entire decentralized ecosystem, is the world’s first full-state sharding public chain and a high-performance platform for large-scale DApps. Powered by an innovative three-layered ledger architecture consisting of a main chain, service chains, and off-chain ledgers, TOP Chain is capable of handling real-world business of any size and volume. TOP Chain applies technological innovations such as a two-layer lattice DAG, two-layer sharding, and a parallel pBFT-PoS consensus mechanism, making a single chain capable of processing over 100,000 transactions per second. Equipped with high TPS, airtight security, and extremely fast confirmation times, TOP Chain is a reliable platform for services demanding high-frequency transactions such as communication, gaming, social media, big data, artificial intelligence, IoT, and more.
The long-term mission of TOP Network is to build a public blockchain infrastructure for all DApps. Our world-class team of over 100 developers is striving for this goal. We have already developed HiWallet, a cryptocurrency wallet, and are currently developing a series of blockchain games and more large-scale DApps on top of the ecosystem.
Moreover, over 80 million global users will be progressively migrated from the pre-existing communications Apps — Dingtone, CoverMe, and SkyVPN — to TOP Chain, generating a huge volume of transactions and traffic to make TOP a prosperous blockchain ecosystem.
TOP Network was founded by Steve Wei in Silicon Valley in 2017, with the R&D team based in China. Steve was one of the earliest employees of WebEx in the 1990s. After WebEx, he founded Cenwave Communications, a successful video conferencing software company which was acquired by Huawei in 2010. In 2012, Steve co-founded Dingtone, a publicly listed company operating a set of communications Apps with over 80 million global users.
