Development overview

OKExChain Testnet has been upgraded to v0.11.1

The core feature of OKExChain Testnet v0.11.1 is the added support for OpenDEX-Desktop v0.0.2. 

The current version introduces push notifications for local nodes. Through the data-analysis module, users can receive notifications about market news, technical analysis indicators and transaction records. The module allows desktop users to access the latest market information without relying on any centralized servers.

At the same time, v0.11.0 also supports the DEX operator function. The DEX operator can issue tokens, as well as list and manage token pairs. 

In addition to the support of OpenDEX-Desktop, OKExChain's staking module has added a minimum self-collateral for validators — currently, 10,000 TOKT — and a multi-send transaction fee is charged according to the use of gas, rather than the previous practice of charging by a fixed fee.

  • An open-source stream module, which provides customized development of data for dex.
  • The addition of two APIs: OKExChain/v1/dex/fees and OKExChain/v1/latestheight.
  • An API update — two interfaces, including OKExChain/v1/dex/deposits and OKExChain/v1/products, have added paging features.

Wasm Smart Contract development is 90% complete

The API version of cosmwasm-go has been updated to v0.10. The interface and parameters are the same as the API of the cosmwasm testnet.

Safemath support has been added for cosmwasm-go.

The development of the cosmwasm-go json is complete and has been reviewed by the community. You can find more information here: https://github.com/okex/go-cosmwasm

Progress in the OKExChain Ecosystem

The results of the first OKExChain Hackathon for innovative applications was officially announced. A total of eight authoritative judges from the industry evaluated and scored the entries.

A total of 24 teams and individuals submitted entries that covered a wide range of innovative applications — including DEXs, digital asset wallets, APIs, virtual machines, blockchain browsers, staking, developer tools, SDKs, cross-chain solutions, and many more innovations. 

The first prize went to both NetCloth for developing an EVM and Bitsong, a decentralized music-streaming platform. The second prize went to three teams: Ankr, btspp and DappBirds. The third prize went to Mixswap, ChainsGuard, MathWallet, BitVate, YOYOW, OneChain, Cosmostation and more. Furthermore, other teams that participated in this contest also received their respective rewards.

Based on the scores of the teams that participated and the judges' nominations, the OKExChain community selected the final winners for the OKExChain Hackathon. We hope that the Hackathon will allow more organizations and individuals to fully realize their talents and promote the growth and prosperity of the OKExChain public chain ecosystem.
