Dear Aresians

Welcome to our weekly report. We will continue to share you contents about Ares Protocol-Oracle of Polkadot Weekly Update.

This week, the team is working on optimization of extractor of Kusama crowd-loan data, distributing model of development rewards and so on which were aimed at preparing for Second-round of Kusama parachain auction in coming September. Brand products were updated in all platforms while community and social media were expanded significantly. Here, we will share every bit of changes on Ares with you.

Development process


  • The module library and Substrate are synchronized to the latest version of monthly-2021–08.
  • Used external references for frame, primitives, clients, docs, and moved some pallets configurations to separate part_* files to avoid bloated Runtime configurations.
  • The pallets — OCW function is reconstructed. The pallets are read by the Substrate operator, analyzed and delivered to the upper pallet.
  • Babe + Authorship consensus identification module is added to ensure that legitimate authenticators can provide legitimate prices.

Quotation system

  • Preset 7 exchange price query.
  • Supports two algorithms for aggregating prices.
  • Short — term historical price buffer is quickly queried, long — term price database is maintained.
  • Different trading pairs can be added by configuration.
