With the conclusion of our Gravity Bridge audit this week, our mainnet launch preparations gained momentum. The Bridge is a vital component of our Token Migration strategy. It will facilitate the transfer of unstaked CUDOS ERC-20 tokens from Ethereum to our native chain following our mainnet launch. While we continue to evaluate the audit’s findings, preliminary assessments provide a positive appraisal, potentially ticking off another significant milestone as we continue our steady march to mainnet, which is slated to go live next month.
Alongside the Gravity Bridge audit, we’ve continued with network-wide tests on the Dress Rehearsal (DR) network, a successful replication of our mainnet environment to enable network testing under post-mainnet conditions. This has helped us flag various issues, which we continue to resolve. Finally, we aim to create a final DR network before the mainnet to thoroughly assess the network’s performance under stress.
Here are some of the most critical issues we’re tackling currently.
- Gravity Bridge: With the Bridge audit completed, we had mostly low importance issues with only a handful mid- to high-priority concerns. We are now examining and categorising them and will address them in order of importance.
- Network hardfork: The next network hardfork will happen on the public testnet, and we’re keeping the current DR network for additional testing. We will have a more precise projection next week regarding the public testnet hardfork, with a target date of later this month. The plan is to have all mainnet dependencies included in this hardfork since it will likely be the final hardfork before we go live.
- Tokenomics: We’ll require an additional network to test the tokenomics with a few Cudos-managed nodes and modifications to the root validator start. This process will need some extra setup, but it is not complicated.
- Dress Rehearsal: We plan to create a second DR network before the mainnet launch. This will likely occur in early June following the resolution and testing of the issues mentioned above. In addition to these, we continue to resolve various infrastructure-related tasks for the Explorers, Gravity Bridge, and Legacy MultiSig/composite wallets.

- Token Migration: Once we get closer to the Mainnet launch, we will communicate the new dates for freezing the staking rewards and contract. We’ll also provide new timelines for utilising the address mapping tool.
