Hi everyone! 👋

I’m posting early today because I’m traveling this afternoon ✈️

Still, today’s update will be larger than the last couple of weeks. I can’t believe it’s already Friday. Time is flying right now!

Daily earnings will be running from Halloween 👻, meaning that you will see the updates in your dashboards from Friday 01st November.

Multiple Hosts per account are now enabled 💥

In support of this Edge CLI 1.4.1 has been released. Please update before installing additional nodes. You can do this by running:

apt install edge-cli

Stargates are now showing in the dashboards of those of you who have staked against our existing Stargate deployments. As more Stargates are added over time, more spaces will open up staking.

On Stargates, payouts are currently being evenly distributed. This is because the distribution of load in the network is very uneven at this level because of the relatively low capacity use of masternode. As this changes we will move to an actual-work basis. Timings on this are TBC, and are dependent on sales efforts.

The network team kicked off work re-platforming My Edge (Web) to Edge Console (which is being written in Nuxt). As part of this work they wrote a custom datasource plugin for Nuxt to simplify integration with API and added internationalisation (i18n) with multi-language support.

They also started work to migrate My Edge API to version 6, and fixed issue with Stargate device status in User Devices.

Work began on CLI connectivity check functionality, allowing users to check if devices are fit for the network.

And Consul Token Cleaner builds were setup.

Edge CDN has been in testing on test.network, with comparisons against DADI CDN run over the week. Work has also been done to ensure that all methods behave in the same way.

The team also implemented a number of fixes to network CDN, including resolving a timeout issue and resizing style issues.

And they have been preparing for October earnings, specifically looking at staked Stargate support.

The web services team have been working on additional updates to the rich editor in our interfaces set along with changes to the Markdown serialiser.

They are also pretty much done with the next release of API, which we expect to be released next week. Work has also started on a series of updates to the account functions in API.

We’ve had a number of customer meetings this week, including three new opportunities.

Finally, we expect to have interfaces for content distribution in open Beta for the community when Arthur’s back, so in the second week of November (TBC). The processes are all integrated and ready to go. We’re currently working on the front end designs, which will be released under my.edge.network in the first instance.

And that’s it!

Enjoy your weekends 🙂
