Weekly Report 01.05.23–07.05.23

Weekly Highlights

1. Optimized the CESS Node and TEE Worker code within the consensus node, refactored certain data structures, methods, and events. Synchronized the update of corresponding functionalities for storage miners.

2. Tested for on-chain transaction queries and node registration functionalities within the consensus node this week.

3. 12 consensus nodes and 5278 storage nodes registered with almost 95.14 tib effective storage space.

4. CESS’s 3 Co-founders and 2 tech leads serve as panel members for Hackathon hosted by Duke University.

Project Development Details

Current testnet: V0.5.3 consists of consensus and storage nodes. ​​Consensus nodes maintain the world state of the CESS network (by CESS Node)and serve as the “data authentication station” (by TEE Worker). Storage nodes provide verifiable storage space and serve as the “data storage pool” in the CESS network.

Consensus Miner [v0.5.3]

- Adjusted code for the consensus node, unified the peer_id data structure, and provided updated data structures, methods, and events for storage nodes.

- Added the ability for off-chain workers to automatically trigger the release of locks upon completion of their tasks.

- Fixed a bug in storage nodes that caused incorrect judgment of lock_time during pre-exit.

- Refactored the TEE Worker code structure, transferring the network registration functionality from the Kaleido storage proof library to the rotator.

- Completed testing for functionalities such as on-chain transaction queries and node registration.

Storage Miner [v0.5.3]

- Synchronized the update of the corresponding code in storage nodes based on the provided changes in data structures, methods, and events from the consensus node.

- Updated the interaction functionalities with TEE Worker, specifically distinguishing between idle data and operational data when obtaining verification parameters.

- Debugged and tested the functionalities for storage node registration, exit, and information query.

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)

- Completed the development of text hiding and displaying functionality for long text sections across various pages.

- Accomplished the responsive design adaptation for several pages to ensure optimal display on mobile devices.



12 consensus nodes and 5278 storage nodes registered with almost 95.14 tib effective storage space within 183 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, took place in April with sponsorship from CESS, Hedera, and two other projects. The hackathon aimed to explore the potential of Web3 and leverage CESS’s decentralized storage network and other projects’ products and services. The judging panel consisted of CESS’s three co-founders, Nick Zaldastani, Jessie Dai, and Joseph Li, along with two tech leads from CESS.
