1. Development Progress
- Implemented chain ID in pyquarkchain where each chain can be individually configured (e.g., consensus algorithm, number of shards, VM) and new chains can be added into the network dynamically.
- Implemented multi-native tokens (https://medium.com/quarkchain-official/supporting-multi-native-tokens-in-a-single-blockchain-686fc65f5931) in pyquarkchain which supports token transfers at this moment. Features to pay gas in native tokens are under development.
- Implemented Proof of Staked Work (https://medium.com/quarkchain-official/proof-of-staked-work-ef36f9499279) in pyquarkchain. This will allow miners to mine blocks with much less difficulty if they lock certain amount of tokens in their accounts.
- Updated testnet web code to work with chain ID and transfer multi-native tokens.
A new testnet (network ID 24) with the features mentioned above will be launched and tested at the end of February.
