TOP Network Weekly Report: August 11-August 17
It’s been two weeks since TOP Network came out of stealth mode, and the project has been going smoothly. Here we updated the progress of this week to all our supporters and followers.
I. Technical Development
- Core Chain
1) Improved the PBFT consensus algorithm to v0.3: Complexity of the consensus algorithm is optimized from previous O(N*N) to O(N) level, and a consensus process now only requires (5f+1) replying packets.
2) Improved the algorithm of data synchronization between nodes to v0.2. Now supports incremental synchronization of node data.
3) RPC Server now supports asynchronous mode and higher concurrency.
4) Deploying private testnet v0.3.
- Core Network
1) Implemented Reliable UDP v0.1 to accelerate reliable transmission between nodes.
2) Introduced asio network library to replace libuv, providing better asynchronous io management.
- Base application
1) Completed HD Wallet’s schematic technical design.
2) Complete the technical verification of the HD key.
- Testing & Bugfix
1) Built a mock environment for PBFT and data synchronization module testing, which allows independent testing to simulate consensus process.
2) Fixed bugs found in mock testing.
- The executive summary of TOP Network project was released on our official website(topnetwork.org). All the key information about TOP Network can be found in the executive summary, which is more readable than the whitepaper.
