Here’s what we’ve been working on:

 

Last week:

Cudos Network

  • The team have completed the research on IBC module production readiness
    • In short: Considering upgrade to v2 of the module. To upgrade to IBC-GO v2, we need to upgrade it in the Gravity Bridge module and fork the cosm-wasm module.
  • We have investigated the jailing of certain validators during the last network upgrade.
    • In short: The problem occurred due to missing gravity’s parameters in the genesis.json
  • We completed extensive research and design on the NFT bridge
  • The team have updated the Cudos Nodes documentation. It now includes a description of what ports must be open on nodes for them to function properly.
  • We have tested (dry run test) the upgrade of a local network.
  • The team have researched the upgrade procedures of other networks, as well as the cosmos upgrade module. 
  • Work on the CGO bindings to allow smart contract interfaces with the new NFT module will continue for the current week.

 

Ethereum to CUDOS migration

  • After several improvements, we have completed the Address Mapping UI, which will be available to the public very soon. 
  • We will move the address mapping contract forward after the final PR review.
  • Locked message has been added to the Staking page to appear during the migration process.

 

Tooling

  • We have refactored the node to: 
    • Start with a fresh instance when restarted
    • Add accounts in its docker instance instead of on the local machine
  • The team have prepared “next step” refactoring tasks to improve current implementations. We have added these to the current sprint.

 

Other

  • We have made wording improvements on the Staking UI.

 

This week:

 

Cudos Network

  • We will be working on Gravity Bridge changes and accommodations to patch any security/stability concerns.
  • We will be finalising the IBC module implementation for cross-chain Cosmos bridging.
  • We will be clarifying open questions around tokenomics and vesting.
  • We will be conducting CosmWasm tests for Cosmos SDK v0.44.

 

DApps

  • We will carry out the completion of CGO bindings.

 

Ethereum to CUDOS migration

  • We will carry out the final code review of the Mapping Contract and send it for a third-party security audit. 

 

Tooling

  • We will complete refactoring tasks to continue with new implementations.

 

 

About Cudos

 

The Cudos Network is a layer 1 blockchain and layer 2 computation and oracle network designed to ensure decentralised, permissionless access to high-performance computing at scale. It enables the scaling of computing resources to hundreds of thousands of nodes. Once bridged onto Ethereum, Algorand, Polkadot and Cosmos, Cudos will enable scalable computational and layer-two oracles on all bridged blockchains.
