Weekly Update: W/C 27th July, 2020

As part of our ongoing commitment to transparency and development in the open, our founder writes weekly updates to the Edge community. This is the 69th of these updates, originally posted to Telegram.

Hi everyone đź‘‹

A long day (and week!), so this update is a little later than usual.

Edge was issued with a new subnet through RIPE as part of the ongoing upgrade to the mainnet backbone. We’ll be moving this side fo things in to production over the next 1-2 weeks as we refactor the Stargate layer to better reflect current and projected usage patterns.

We have a new sales director on the team. He will be working with Ravi & co. to complete the update to our site to better support sales of our first service. He’s also working on fleshing out our sales strategy for CDN.

The team spent most of the week improving the build and deployment process, specifically adding automation tasks to reduce the time required for network app releases to process and confirm to live.

They have also been refactoring the configuration process on Gateway to use the existing RPC connection between Gateway and Stargate. This further reduces the need for Consul within the network stack and is a key step in the Consul removal programme. The changes are currently in testing.

Development is progressing well on the build out of the new eCommerce subscriptions platform I mentioned in an earlier update. Design is done and we’re currently working through the integration of API with the Edit interfaces.

The tipping app, tiipr, is now live in 40 restaurants here in the UK and are continuing their rollout. Their tech is built on Edit and is majority running in the network.

The distribution of $TNC continues, with another batch processed this week. If you’ve not swapped yet don’t panic, there’s plenty of time to do so. But we recommend that you do sooner rather than later.

And that’s it for this week.

Enjoy your weekends.
