With Zilliqa’s non-custodial staking rails firmly set, and we’re riding full speed toward mainnet launch. Along the journey, we’ve got plenty of things to keep you occupied such as the public testnet beta test which you’ve been enjoying, the ZilSwap DEX test, for security nuts out there, the Bug Bounty project should keep things juicy for you. So far, we’ve recorded 582 delegators, 17,596,400 + $ZIL staked, 3,200 + GZIL minted and 8,336 transactions as part of the beta testing.
Constant fixes and refinements are on-going as we get set for the big day — 14/10. Once this happens, you can directly use Zillion, our simplified staking portal, to stake $ZIL to earn passive income and governance rights via the gZIL token. We’ve received fantastic feedback from the community, and would love to continue hearing from you on your experience with Zillion.
Let’s get Technical
In preparation for the staking launch, the mainnet will be upgraded to Zilliqa version 6.4.0. This version will introduce the mining rewards and minimum gas price changes needed for seamless staking.
For those who speak “smart contracts”, other changes will include:
✹ Integration with Scilla v. 0.9.0
✹ Doubled contract code size limit to 50kB
✹ Updates to proxy mining
✹ Updates to GetPendingTxn API. More here
✹ We’re continuing to work on supporting gas mechanics in the VM execution mode, with some major refactoring to accommodate this already implemented in Scilla base
✹ The team will be presenting a poster on the Scilla->LLVM compiler at the 2020 Virtual LLVM developers’ Meeting today
✹ Work is underway on the Scilla-to-TLA+ transpiler, which is a part of the platform’s verification project....
