  • Upgrade parallel chain Mars to version 0.9.13 and add Optace-Runtime
  • Sorted out Mars parallel chain and conducted data synchronization test, which has been successfully synchronized so far.
  • Test subQuery, a lightweight block-scanning component that customizes data structures, is tested to support front-end block-scanning.
  • The design part of ARES — Oracle UI, compatible with code for upgrading ARES -chain.
  • Improved tests for upgrading ARES — OCW to 0.9.15 and the corresponding version.

Market& Community Status Quo

The second phase of node deployment has made a successful ending.
So far, the rewards, 43100ARES in total for node deployment, have all been distributed to the relevant participants, which now exceeded 41. Those nodes are dispersed all around the globe, such as Russia, Kazakhstan and they are hitting on a debated daily basis in the miner’s fascinating group. The project party exerts immense gratitude for the contributors for node deployment.
Meanwhile, the third round of node testing is on edge for starting; make sure you joined the miner’s group (Ares Protocol Node Miner) to discuss relevant issues and information on nodes.

Ares Protocol-decentralised cross-chain oracle platform in Polkadot ecosystem

Ares Protocol is a decentralized cross-chain Oracle that truly implements a new generation of cross-chain Oracle service protocol for data on-chain verification, and is the first to open a compensation channel for data users who suffer business losses from using Oracle data.
Ares Protocol is a stochastic secure Oracle solution developed based on the Substrate framework, supporting hybrid Babe and off-chain workhorses, incorporating Polkadot’s latest on-chain governance, bringing the Optimistic Rollup challenge model into the Oracle space, supporting the Ink contract ecosystem, and bringing better quality Oracle services to Defi developers.
