Weekly Report 27.03.23 -02.04.23

Weekly Highlights

1. Developed and tested the Kaleido Rust version codebase for storage proof, adding new vitality into CESS’s diversified technology selection

2. Developed and optimized multiple functions for consensus nodes, enhancing the overall robustness of the CESS network.

3. Completed the development of the go-sdk based on p2p technology and open-sourced the code on GitHub for public use.

4. Held the first ambassador program meeting, with over 400 applicants invited.

5. Attended a Web3 event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, connecting with fellow professionals to explore the latest advancements

Project Development Details:

Current testnet: V0.5.3 consists of consensus and storage nodes.Consensus nodes maintain the world state of the CESS network and serve as the “data scheduling station” in the network.Storage nodes are responsible for providing verifiable storage space and act as the data storage pool in the network. Updates for this week:

Consensus Miner [v0.5.3]

Completed the development of several features such as transmission reporting, timed tasks, and file replacement in the new development iteration. Addressed the issue of shared file blocks affecting space management.

Developed and tested all methods of the Kaleido Rust version code library for storage proof, including key generation, challenge generation, proof generation, and signature generation. Optimized the code structure and operational logic of the library, resulting in improved execution efficiency.

Fixed bugs discovered during the process of batch generating and verifying proofs in the Kaleido storage proof library.

Storage Miner [v0.5.3]

Successfully encapsulated the file acquisition function based on p2p technology, offering a fast, secure, and user-friendly means of file retrieval.

Completed the development of the go-sdk based on p2p technology, and open-sourced the code on GitHub for public use.

The mission of CESS is to provide Web3 with practical storage services. The product ecosystem of the current CESS network is becoming more robust and prosperous. Innovative applications such as decentralized object storage service (DeOSS), online file sharing tool (DeShare), and public chain snapshot storage service have been incubated. Users can experience these functions. Updates for this week:

Official Website (cess.cloud)

Refined and optimized the details on the homepage.

Successfully completed development of several pages, including the About, Community Ambassador Program, Blog, DeOSS, and Deshare page.

DeShare (an URL generation file sharing tool)

Upgraded the file storage logic to permanently store failed files, reducing the need for file retransferring and improving the overall user experience.


The CESS Wiki is the official documentation to provide comprehensive information on core technology principles, setup instructions, and usage methods. Our team has completed the writing and optimization of all documentation in the initial version, ensuring a high-quality user experience.



11 consensus nodes and 5099 storage nodes registered with almost 82.53 tib effective storage space within 148 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. Latest miner reward list.

Community Activities

1. HackDW3C is a virtual hackathon jointly sponsored by CESS and Duke University, aimed at exploring the potential of Web3 and leveraging CESS’s decentralized storage network. With a $22,500 prize pool, the event offers an opportunity for participants to showcase their technological skills. The hackathon runs from April 7 to April 23, and interested individuals can apply using this link: bit.ly/HACKDW3C

2. The first meeting for the CESS ambassador program was conducted via Zoom, with over 400 applicants invited. During the meeting, the CESS team provided valuable insights into the selection process and expectations of the ambassador program. The event was recorded and is available for anyone who missed it.
