Hi everyone! đź‘‹

In case you missed it, The Edge network won the award for “Best Edge Computing Platform” in Juniper Research’s Technology & Innovation Awards 💥

Here’s the press release: https://www.juniperresearch.com/press/press-releases/future-digital-award-winners-announced-for-technol

We’ve had a whole bunch of Edge stickers made!


Those Founding Node owners who opted for a new SD will receiving some with new card shortly. Anyone else that would like to get their hands on some can do so by completing this form:


We expect to be opening up self-onboarding to multiple nodes per account in early October.

The start of October will also see the release of automated earnings updates, with daily amounts being added to the dashboard.

A small refresh of the dashboard will be pushed to live to accommodate this too.

We’ve made strong progress with the refresh of the editorial interfaces for the SaaS version of what were our web services that will be launching later this year. The date picker, number fields, reference selection view, document deletion confirmation prompt, profile page and welcome page were all completed, as were font updates and several mobile improvements.

OKEx, CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko all updated our branding to Edge. A few more exchanges and listing sites to go, but we’re nearly there.

The network team made a significant update to caching in the Content Distribution service, which was released to mainnet today.

Specifically the short term cache has been altered on Gateway to be configurable on a per-domain basis, meaning we can now configure different caches for different customers.

They also successfully tested an important component for Object Storage - the propagation of file content between connected Gateways.

And some vital fixes were made to Host, delaying request contribution until CDN has been fully configured on the device. This removes the potential for bad job processing at the point of device start up.

The team have also been working on the delivery of an encrypted network overlay to prevent the sniffing of traffic. There are a few outstanding issues to be worked through, which we expect to be closed out next week.

Inflight pooling for Content Distribution has been introduced in the Go build of the software. This significantly improves performance when asynchronous asset requests occur.

We completed the integration of a new CRM platform internally which has been put in place to support the sales process for network services. My co-founder Will is going to be looking after customer onboarding.

We had confirmation of the move of an existing customers infrastructure in to Content Distribution on the network. We expect this to take place in October.

And finally a reminder that our next AMA will take place on the first Friday in October, the 04th.

And that’s it for this week! Thank you for your ongoing support.
