Dear Aresians, Welcome to read our weekly update of Ares Protocol, a decentralized cross-chain oracle platform on the Polkadot ecosystem.

While a huge airdrop worth 50,000 USDT at maximum held by the Ares team is raging on, the telegram group is having a lively environment with talkative members, as other platforms are surging with followers. In the meantime, Ares Protocol established a new bond with Token Pocket and Coinhub Wallet, which ensured users to use Ares more safely. Test network Gladios version 1.01 is launched officially, and we welcome you to become our test network node to obtain your benefit in the early stage.

Here, we share every bit of Ares.

Development Process


•Ares-chain added NPOS related pallets, such as Staking, Session, Election, etc.

Refactoring NPOS :

a. Research on changing block producer number according to the number of people participating in Staking.

b. Research on Election-provider-multi-phase functions and responsibilities of each phase and the implementation and parameter Settings of each phase.

c.Tease out staking calculations and the corresponding payout principles.

•OCW-suit library data type and storage structure were upgraded, new storage structure and data type for subsequent function expansion were implemented.

•Oracle model block online price inquiry function test version was launched, which could be used to launch an inquiry request, verifier node will start price acquisition and aggregation of average results on the chain after receiving the request.

•In theory, average price aggregation can be carried out only after all verifiers submit offers. If some verifiers cannot provide prices at this time, then when the maximum delay block is reached, it will be compared with the average price aggregation threshold. If it is greater than the threshold, it will continue to aggregate the average price on the chain. However, reached_type =2 will be marked to indicate that the quotation of not all verified nodes is not complete. If the quotation is lower than the threshold value, the inquiry operation will be terminated and the average price aggregation will not be carried out.

•The OCW-Finance module is designed to support the establishment of the economic model related to price (fees, profit distribution).

Other Updates

•Mars Parachain Crownloan Award registration verification

•The first draft of the quotation program UI was completed

•Investigate the Oracle implementation of solidity contracts
