Weekly Update – TestNet Upgrades, Website And More

Jun 30, 2023

Hi DeFiChain Community,

Another exciting week has passed and we are thrilled to bring you the latest news from DeFiChain. From significant TestNet upgrades to new developments on the official DeFiChain website, here's a detailed rundown of everything that's been happening.

MetaChain: TestNet Upgrades

The MetaChain team has been putting in exceptional efforts to upgrade the TestNet, squash bugs, and lay solid foundations for the upcoming MainNet. We've categorized our progress into three key phases:

  • Phase 1: Complete! This phase saw the implementation of the Base EVM layer with no rollbacks. It's a crucial step that gives us the basic structure to build upon.
  • Phase 2: Complete! This phase involved various significant upgrades including fee ordering, non-consensus upgrades, DUSD loop, ICX enablement, nonce-related fixes, and pre-compiled contracts.
  • Phase 3: In progress. The current phase is focused on consensus upgrades, preparation for the hard fork, DST token support, and RPC API improvements.

Keep your eyes peeled for more updates on these exciting TestNet upgrades!
