WAVES became partner of Blockchain School+ Weekly update
in the very final stages of development before full nodes are released.
Since completing our crowdfund in June, we’ve hired a number of
talented new devs, rebuilt Scorex network layer,
undertaken extensive testing of nodes and assets with the help of the
community, fixed several critical bugs and a larger number of minor
ones, and improved network efficiency. In the meantime, the work on the matching engine continues.
being well, we’ll launch the public network within the next two weeks.
Needless to say, we’re very excited about this, but remember that this
is only the start. The public network is the means, not the ends, and
will be the foundation on which new functionality will be rolled
out — starting with custom tokens (assets).
Tech Paper: Enhancing Scalability with Improved Authenticated Dynamic Dictionaries
Leonid Reyzin, Dmitry Meshkov, Alex Chepurnoy and Sasha Ivanov
have published a new technical paper in which they detail improvements
that can be made over existing implementations of two-party and
three-party authenticated dynamic dictionaries. Implementing this
approach on Waves will increase performance and scalability.
improvements to the design of authenticated dictionaries reduce proof
size and speed up verification by 1.4–2.5 times, making them better
suited for the cryptocurrency application. We further show that proofs
for multiple transactions in a single block can be compressed together,
reducing their total length by approximately an additional factor of 2.’

Waves Platform became the general partner of the Blockchain School, which was officially opened on 18 October at the National Research University
in Moscow. There will be one lecture per week. On 8 November Sasha will
talk about the Waves platform. There will also be a hackathon and a
business incubator for the winners.
Waves Weekly Crypto Roundup
week we have a new presenter for our film, since Lola sadly had to
return to London. We expect to see her back in Moscow in a few weeks,
when she will return to our weekly updates! Meanwhile, we’ve got another
friendly face in front of the camera.
