WanX — Making Wanchain Cross-Chain Transactions Easier for Developers
I recently sat down with one of our developers, Jeremiah, to talk about a developer package that he created to make Wanchain cross-chain transactions easier and less error-prone. Below he talks us through this package, and I’ve included his WanX tutorial video and demo DEX video as well.
Could you introduce yourself and what you do at Wanchain?
My name is Jeremiah Goyette, and I am a software engineer working for Wanchain since about June 2018. While I am based out of Austin, I work closely with many of the developers in Beijing and have been working with them on several aspects of the 2.0 and 3.0 releases.
When I first came on to Wanchain, I took over the code that handles the backend database synchronization for the Wanchain explorer at wanscan.org. This was a reasonable starting point given that it aligned well with my previous background. But as it turned out, starting with the explorer code was even more rewarding since it required me to learn all of the intricate details of cross-chain transactions, which proved to be invaluable knowledge when building out the WanX package.
Tell me about this WanX package that you’ve recently developed. What is it and how does it save time for developers building on Wanchain?
WanX is mainly just a storehouse of all the information one needs to do cross-chain transactions, with helper functions that allow developers to build and send the correct contract calls without having to think too much about it.
But before talking about what WanX does, it might be best to start with talking about cross-chain transactions in general. In the context of Wanchain, what we mean by “cross-chain transaction” is the conversion of an asset to its corresponding Wanchain proxy token, or ...
