Cudos Labs: Testnet Development Update! 🧠 (26/08/2021)

Last week:

Cudos Network

  • We continued testing and researching the migration of the existing Validators and Delegators to the main-chain.
  • We added support for X <-> Y decimal digit token transfer in the Gravity bridge. (Note: We’ve briefly paused this due to the Cosmos software development kit (SDK) update as decimal reduction might no longer be required.)
  • We fixed the batches’ timeout calculation.
  • We calculated AverageBlockTime instead of using it from a parameter.
  • We started the update of the explorer libraries. (Note: This update will solve issues with the precision and visualisation of numbers in the Explorer.)
  • We updated the Faucet libraries.
  • We started updating the Cosmos SDK (incl.
  • Researched the Gravity Bridge slashing policy.


  • We researched the current state of Ethermint for feasibility.
  • We worked on integrating an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) module in the Cudos Network.

This week:

Cudos Network

  • We’re finalising the Gravity bridge slashing policy documentation.
  • We’re finishing the explorer libraries update.
  • We’re making a final go/no-go decision on the decimal reduction.
  • We’re completing the Cosmos SDK update.
  • We’re doing final preparations and task divisions for the migration of the validators.
  • We’re finalising the Ethermint research.
  • We’re re-deploying the Testnet (incl. Gravity Bridge).
