Dear Wanchain Community,

We are about to share something very exciting. Wanchain is pleased to announce that the new Explorer (1.1) is now LIVE. You can check out the Wanchain Explorer 1.1 by going to: https://www.wanscan.org/

Here you can view the homepage layout for the new Explorer. The new UI shows the blocks, block height and latest transactions.

The picture above displays the block overview when clicking on the block height. Information such as block hash, size, gas used and gas limit are easily displayed, e.g. https://www.wanscan.org/block/718478

The picture above displays the current WRC20 tokens that are live on the Wanchain Mainnet. You can find out more details about each WRC20 token by clicking on the corresponding token.

After clicking on the WRC20 token, this is the information you can view: name of token, total supply, decimals, owner and symbol
The wallet address on the explorer displays information about each transaction: block, age, from and to addresses, type (public or private) and timestamp.

Here are some new functions you can look forward to using:

· Streamlined UI design

· Improved Breadcrumb-Navigation

· Added block overview

· Added token transaction details

· Added Smart Contract details

You will soon be able to view deployed smart contracts and read the smart contract code publicly on the Explorer, create WRC20 tokens, host, contribute to ICOs and view how many tokens and WAN each address holds. Our new Explorer is a significant change from the simple explorer and we expect more developers to start building on Wanchain.

WANLab update

WANLab project AllSpark has officially released their whitepaper. AllSpark has been making impressive progress, and we are excited to continue to support their development toward a successful launch (ICO details here).

AllSpark website: http://allsparkchain.com/

AllSpark telegram group: https://t.me/allsparkchat

Here is the latest AllSpark PR release:

We also wanted to give a quick update about the progression of WANLab. We are continuing to refine the WANLab process and have decided that Utour and Gamebank are not fit for continuation through the WANLab incubator and as such, we have terminated all relations with these projects. We are also happy to announce that we are currently evaluating dozens of projects that have begun the WANLab selection process. Please stay tuned as we build up our WANLab website to provide more details.

Thank you very much!

About Wanchain

Wanchain connects and exchanges value between different blockchain ledgers in a distributed manner. It uses the latest cryptographic theories to build a non-proprietary cross-chain protocol and a distributed ledger that records both cross-chain and intra-chain transactions. Any blockchain network, whether a public, private or consortium chain, can integrate with Wanchain to establish connections between different ledgers and perform low cost inter-ledger asset transfers. The Wanchain ledger supports not only smart contracts, but also token exchange privacy protection.
