Cardano will be releasing numerous other bug fixes
Cardano took another step towards full decentralisation a few days ago with the successful completion of the Shelley Fork. This milestone was recorded in the history of Cardano, marking the end of byron’s era and the beginning of Shelley’s. After Shelley’s hard fork, as of this writing, the number of registered pile pools has exceeded 400. Cardano has introduced a number of other bug fixes and continues to push diversification.
Furthermore, great progress was made in the
DeltaQ integration with block fetch applications. The tip-sample protocol was
launched and the data application functionality for peer-to-peer governors was
extended. Another team has been working on the tests for removing questionable
aliases. At the same time, redundant maps were removed, the code was checked
and performance problems within the network were detected.
Apart from the Shelley hard fork, Cardano
has also launched a number of other updates. This week the development team of
Adrestia released a fully functional wallet with Daedalus integration and
Graphql and Rest APIs including a read and write function. The team has also
confirmed that 10 out of 15 exchanges have already integrated the Adrestia
toolset. By the end of the week, all connected exchanges should have migrated.
The mc3 team has added a tracking function
to monitor the further hard fork process. The Shelley ledger was also checked
and the further lowering of the d parameter for the hard fork release was
The Marlowe team has improved the execution
of Marlowe contracts and streamlined the code. To work out the next technical
specifications, the Goguen and Marlowe teams met to work out all the other
details and documentation requirements for the next release.
Number of registered Stakepools increased to 400
Hoskinson continues to say that numerous
performance updates will follow in August to further improve the performance of
the network. The IOHK CEO will also be setting up a dedicated stake pool next
week, as soon as he finds the time. A major firmware update for Ledger and
Trezor wallets is also scheduled for next week. A staking function with cold
wallets will be implemented so that hardware wallet owners can also participate
