WAVES became partner of Blockchain School+ Weekly update



  • Development Update:

    We’re
    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.

    All
    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.

    ‘Our
    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.’

    Blockchain School:

    Waves Platform became the general partner of the Blockchain School, which was officially opened on 18 October at the National Research University
    i
    n 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.

    friendly face in front of the camera.
