Here, we’ll keep you updated on everything about Ares!

Development process of this week

Ares Chain

1. Added Pallet: manual_bridge library to ocw-suit, supporting cross-chain to eth and bsc networks and recording users cross-chain transfer messages information. This module can set a deposit account for receiving cross-chain funds, and a minimum transfer threshold.

2. By adding the ares-mars extension to the sweep library, the project can monitor the cross-chain messages sent by the manual_bridge and notify them for subsequent cross-chain processing. This module can process cross-chain and write-off messages to provide available data to the front end.

3. Added the preparatory network odyssey. The network is adjusted based on Polkadot parameters. The entire environment parameters are pasted into the main network parameters. The test has been started.


1. Added ETH to Odyssey cross-chain contract

2. Added ETH to Odyssey and the cross-chain transfer page of Odyssey to ETH

3. Added BSC to Odyssey and the cross-chain transfer page of Odyssey to BSC

4. Added the cross-chain transfer background management page of Odyssey to the ETH

5. Added the cross-chain transfer background management page of Odyssey to the BSC

6. Added the cross-chain transfer background processing and write-off logic of Odyssey to ETH

Added the Chinese, English and Spanish version of roadmap to the official website

Market & Community of this Week

Latest roadmap for project release

The third round of Gladios node testing has officially ended in the early morning of June 15, 2022, Singapore time. The 197-day Gladios test has completed successfully.

In order to ensure a smoother experience for users, the Ares Protocol team decided to issue a preparatory network with the 1:1 same functions as the main network Odyssey before the official launch of the main network. The preparatory network of Odyssey mainnet is expected to run continuously for a month. If the Ares Odyssey preparatory network ran stably, the mainnet Odyssey would officially start the operation phase two weeks after its successful operation!

After the mainnet Odyssey is officially launched, it will bring more milestone development and empowerment to Ares Protocol: it will apply the on-chain governance and the price prediction functions, as well as optimizing the quotation verification function.

After the mainnet Odyssey is enabled for a period of time, the Optimist Challenge mode will be enabled. Then the chain will be upgraded to connect to the Polkadot heterogeneous para-chain.

Ares Protocol, the decentralized cross-chain Oracle service in Polkadot ecosystem

Ares Protocol is a decentralized cross-chain oracle platform that introduces a truly new generation of cross-chain oracle service protocols with on-chain data verification and is the first to open a compensation channel for data users in case they suffer business losses due to the use of data provided by the oracle.

Ares Protocol is an oracle solution with security using VRF, developed on the Substrate framework, and it supports hybrid Babe and off-chain workers. It integrates Polkadot’s latest on-chain governance, brings the Optimistic Rollup challenge model into the oracle field, supports the Ink contract ecosystem, and brings better oracle services to DeFi Developers.
