Platform News (technical side)
Just like January, February was a busy month for us. After the kick-off in January, last month we kept working on the GSW Homomorphic encryption.
As for the fountain development, we managed to finish the distribution coding, testing is ongoing. NAT punch coding is also in the works.
Regarding storage and databases, we implemented fractal-indexing technology and RUST implementation as well.
As for the overlay network, we successfully tested synchronization, the next step is to continue with simultaneous synchronization tests.
Our private blockchain on GitHub got an update and new elements are available in the its_alive repo.
We also decided to integrate Chainlink, a decentralized oracle network that enables smart contracts to securely access off-chain data feeds, web APIs, and traditional bank payments. By bringing Chainlink’s market-leading oracle solution to QANplatform, QAN developers will be able to build more complex smart contract designs that leverage resources from outside the QAN blockchain platform.
Blockchain Economy Istanbul was a very compact and well-organized event in Turkey. The accommodation and the event hall were in one place so the team had the chance to maximize efficiency. We did meet and speak with a lot of Turkish Crypto enthusiasts at our booth, what is more, Johann had his keynote right after Bobby Lee. Behind the scenes, we had the chance to meet with a couple of important stakeholders from this beautiful and exciting country.
