Weekly Report 03.04.23–09.04.23

Weekly Highlights

1. Upgraded and improved various functions for consensus nodes, storage nodes, and DeOSS to enhance stability and user experience

2. Fixed issues in the storage proof Kaleido Rust code repository and completed the p2p TLS transmission function in the SGX environment for network security.

3. New official website is fully developed and tested and it’s ready to launch.

4. Sponsored by CESS, the Duke University Web3 Hackathon HackDW3C takes place from Apr 7- 23.

5. Over 450 applications were received in less than a month since the Ambassador Program launched.

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]

Resolved code compilation errors and upgraded address types to enable compatibility with DeOSS’s p2p transmission function and storage nodes.

Completed development and testing of new features, including file deletion.

Implemented p2p TLS transmission function in SGX environment for secure endpoint authentication.

Fixed the issue of verification failure in Kaleido Rust version code repository for storage proof.

Storage Miner [v0.5.3]

Developed and tested the features including file uploading, miner registration, and metadata access.

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)

Finished developing, inspecting, and testing all pages of the new version of the CESS official website, and have made further improvements to the page details. The website is now fully prepared and ready to launch.

DeOSS(Decentralized Object Storage Service)

Added an example for getting files in the sdk-go code repository.

Refactored the gateway code in the object storage service to integrate with the sdk-go code repository. Updated configuration files, and added a series of functionalities such as uploading files and checking status.

CESS continues to contribute to the vitality and development of the Polkadot ecosystem and has joined programs such as the Substrate Builders Program (SBP) and W3F Grants. The following are developments for this week:

SBP-Milestone 3

Modified the pallet-cacher code according to the review comments, submitted an sbp_fix pull request, and responded to each modification result.



14 consensus nodes and 5099 storage nodes registered with almost 83.70 tib effective storage space within 155 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.The Duke University Web3 Hackathon HackDW3C, sponsored by CESS and Hedera, as we explore the potential of Web3 and leverage CESS’s decentralized storage network. With a $22,500 prize pool, this is the perfect opportunity to showcase your technological skills. The hackathon is ongoing from April 7 to April 23, and CESS Co-founder and Chairman, Nick Zaldastani, is part of the judging panel. Related tweet.

2. CESS has received over 450 applications in less than a month since the program launched! Thank you all for the amazing support.

3. CESS will be attending the Web3 Festival Hong Kong 2023! Come visit us at booth G25 from April 12 to 15 at the Convention and Exhibition Centre.
