SmartMesh Weekly Update (2018.05.07 – 2018.05.11)
Hello SmartMesh Community! Welcome to the latest edition of the SmartMesh Weekly Update.
At present, major exchanges have gradually resumed SMT transactions, and SMT is catching the attention of the public’s eye again.
The team has been just as eager as everyone else for transactions to resume, and after many consultations and communications, SMT’s transactions are gradually returning to normal after a long and challenging two weeks.
Now SmartMesh will march on steadily into the future until the blockchain Mesh network has connected all of the whole world.
The public chain team has been hard at work and most recently has been analyzing the public chain since its launch. Code reviews and optimizations have also been ongoing to ensure that everything progresses along smoothly.
In order to further strengthen the security of the public chain, the team also has conducted analysis and research on network monitoring and node statistic functionality, and has begun to start work on a follow-up project. In the future, Spectrum security will also be upgraded, so as to ensure that DAPPs built upon it can operate safely.
The development of Ozone is also ongoing. The public chain team is committed to making Ozone’s user experience top priority, so we have made some changes in the details.
The latest developments and modifications are as follows:
1) Updated account import functionality.
2) Updated windows compiling and packing environment.
3) Updated synchronization of block progress display.
4) Corrections to Bill details, menu globalization bug fix.
If Blockchain 4.0 is a treasure house full of infinite possibilities, Ozone is the key that will open the door and gain access to them. Creating this magic key is no small task and will test the strength and prowess of the public chain team. Soon we will all be able to see the key open the door.
The normal operation of this payment system is not only related to the ecosystem, but also to the security of the funds it is transferring. So this week, SmartRaiden carried out a number of tests on Spectrum chain failure scenarios. The testing mainly included failures to send messages and the breakdown of ACK messages as well as similar issues.
After testing, the SmartRaiden team gained the ability to realize timely recovery in crash scenarios. However, the SmartRaiden team believes avoiding crashes from the outset is much more important than being able to recover from them after the fact, so the team plans to add a real-time monitoring function for malware and liabilities in subsequent research and development to ensure the stable operation of the SmartRaiden around the clock.
In addition, the SmartRaiden Team also carried out a test on smartphones, and the next phase of development will modify the application to these test results so that SmartRaiden runs flawlessly on smartphones.
The biggest highlight this week for the App team was to add Mobile Raiden functionality to the SmartMesh APP. This is a very exciting milestone and the team is super-psyched about it.
In addition, the APP has also had these other optimizations:
- Optimized the message reception mechanism to handle lots of messages with high concurrency.
- Enhanced user data compatibility to better handle user information displays in both scenarios with internet access and without internet access to enhance user experience.
- Improved the transmission of large data packages in internet-free mode, and effectively improved the speed and quality of transmission.
- Optimized the chat interface memo friend’s head and memo name display.
- Optimized the interface of the Discovery feature.
The SmartMesh APP has been the first ever to combine with SmartRaiden. When it is completed, we will have the first APP in the world to support red gift money envelopes off the blockchain. This is a hugely popular feature in China and we think it will catch on worldwide.
This week, the main task of the International Marketing Team was to communicate with the major exchanges to ensure SMT’s recovery as soon as possible. Because of the time lag between some exchanges and Singapore, the team had to work around the clock to see through all the necessary communications to restore transactions for SMT. Thanks to these efforts Huobi.pro has decided to conduct several promotional activities including “SMT Trade Ranking Competition” and “New User Exclusive SMT Bonus” to get SMT trading back in full gear.
Ramping up with major third-party digital wallet providers to ensure that the SMT Token was labelled properly was also a major task for the team this week. However, a lot of third-party wallets only communicate via e-mail, so it was a challenging task. In the end, the results have been satisfactory as most of the major wallets have made sure that SMT is properly labelled.
On May 10th, 2018, Henry Wang, Founder of SmartMesh, was invited to participate in the “Global Blockchain Investment Forum”. During the meeting, Henry shared the progress of SmartMesh application and as well as all of its future prospects.
Henry also mentioned that currently existing blockchain projects are done via the Internet, but SmartMesh can build connections in areas without access to Internet, allowing blockchains to break through Internet boundaries, and this can be called blockchain 4.0.
This week, the Chinese market team has been busy as usual, spending a great part of its energy to answer questions from the holders about the resumption of SMT transactions. This was no easy task as investors were anxious to get back trading. But they made every effort to strike a balance between being straightforward and comforting as we all weathered the storm together.
