Weekly Report 02.01.23–

Weekly Highlights

1. 3366 storage nodes and 15 consensus nodes registered with 38.10 TiB verified storage space. Details.

2. Continued debugging and testing CESS v0.6.0. Optimized the code implementation logic, and improved the design details.

3.Started the design of CESS milestone 3 this week, completed the CDN network architecture design, and is expected to enter the development stage next week. The problems in milestone 1 were improved and fixed with details recorded in Github.

4. Three projects built using CESS respectively won the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize in Polkadot Hackathon APAC.

Project Development Details:

Consensus Miner

Improved the benchmark test of CESS v0.6.0 and fixed bugs:

Fully tested the benchmark of consensus miner v0.6.0.

Fixed the bugs that the signature verification failed and the order failed to be distributed during the test.

Storage Miner

Completed the debugging and optimization of the functions of v0.6.0:

Completed the debugging and testing of CESS v0.6.0 file signature and on-chain transactions.

Restructured storage miner function modules, updated and adjusted the data structure, making the program more concise and efficient.

Solved the problem of insufficient space for uploading storage miner files in CESS v0.6.0.

DeOSS (Decentralized Object Storage Service)

Fixed the problem of abnormal schedulers’ IPs and failure of uploading large files, a new version OSS v0.1.2 has been released.


Completed the SGX storage proof library test and optimization:

Completed the benchmark test of SGX on remote proof report and private key signature.

Added Kaleido private proof algorithm data signature function.

Completed the proof of storage test experiment, and optimized the parameter details in the algorithm implementation process based on the experimental results.

Completed the compilation of the Docker script and the readme document of the storage proof library.


Improved the new CESS website and optimized the page details.

Completed the CESS CDN network architecture design.

For the problems in Milestone 1, unit tests and tests run in different server environments have been added. Codes and solutions submitted.



15 consensus nodes and 3366 storage nodes registered with almost 38.10 tib effective storage space within 54 days after the v0.5.3 testnet was launched. More details on the blockchain explorer.

If you encounter any issues building a node, please seek assistance on CESS Discord.


The miner reward event for the CESS testnet continued as storage and consensus miners can earn points by participating. Points can be exchanged for CESS tokens when the mainnet launches. Click here for details.

Community Activities

1. CESS co-founder Jessie Dai participated in the “2023 First Polkadot Ecosystem Exchange Conference ‘’ hosted by Gear on Jan 6th. Jessie along with Frozen (head of Gear APAC), Godot (new contributor at Manta Network), Hao (the founder of Web3Go), and 0xUncleLee.Lalaland (evangelist for Amazon cloud technology ecosystem) attended in a round table discussion on the topic of “multi-chain ecosystem vs full-chain ecosystem” and the future vision of blockchain.

2. Jessie Dai and Andy (China Community Manager) participated in the 2022 Web3 Year-End Event co-organized by OneBlock, Parity, and Amazon Technology. Jessie delivered a keynote speech with the topic “How CESS Decentralized Object Storage (DeOSS) can Power Web3”. Andy, along with 0xUncleLee.Lalaland (evangelist for Amazon cloud technology ecosystem), Hao, Jason (founder and CEO of Dante Network), Yang Zou (founder of Polkadot Ecological Research Institute), and Ray (senior director of IOSG), participated in roundtable discussion about the topic of the integration and collision of Web3 and Web2.

3. The 2022 Polkadot Winter Hackathon final took place in Chengdu, China on Jan 9th. Among the 23 final teams, 6 projects built on the CESS chain or used CESS’s decentralized cloud storage services. VIDEOWN (decentralized streaming media platform), Gitverse (decentralized code repository), and PMail (decentralized mail system) respectively won the first, second and third prize. The first prize of this hackathon is 15,380 DOT (about $73,000 USD).

4. Jessie Dai and Andy attended the Hackathon as part of the judging panel to pick the winners for the CESS’s prize. Finally, the prize was awarded to VIDEOWN and QV.OD (decentralized blog), and Gitverse (decentralized code repository).
