Project Development Details:

Blockchain Network


Upgraded the miner proof-of-space scheme, fixed the problem of slow verification speed caused by memory leaks of scheduling nodes. V0.5.3 was ready to be released.

Completed the unit test of the pallet-scheduler-credit model of the scheduler credit score system. The unit test includes: after adding cycle switching, calculating the credit scores of the previous cycle, clearing the measurement value, and obtaining the credit scores, etc.

Storage Miner Bucket

Fixed the random challenge issue. Random challenges may cause data overflow when processing validation results.

Objective Storage Service

Debugged and tested the object storage service cess-oss code, and completed the readme document.

Fixed the registration and bucket deletion problems.

Fixed the error of hash conversion when deleting files.

Proof library SGX

Completed the implementation of the go version proof library and it passed the test.

Completed the algorithm implementation of the SGX-Rust version and optimized the code structure.

Completed the design of Kaleido from development to release. The role of Kaleido is to verify the following: node initialization, uploading files, client verification, file processing proof.

Deleted partial code of the private key exchange of Kaleido, and resolved the compilation error.


Completed test environment for v0.5.3 testnet online upgrade.

Completed the tests of all new additions and upgrades in v0.5.3.



Over 21 consensus nodes and 1355 storage nodes registered with almost 6 tib effective storage space within 11 days after the v0.5.2 testnet was launched. More details on the blockchain explorer.

V0.5.3 was ready to deploy on Nov 14th. Link.
