This week’s development process

Ares Chain

1. synchronize and upgrade ocw-suit and ares-chain to Polkadot-0.9.28 version, update to gladios testnet.

2. Solve the problem of not being able to create new forecasts after forcing the predictions to finish in the price forecasting module.

* The main reason is that UnresolvedEstimates are not deleted when forced to finish.

* Add the corresponding test and compile and release gladios version 151.

3. Modify the price aggregation event return data to re-add the specific submitted block height for each validator

* Aggregated event `aresOracle.AggregatedPrice` returns data corresponding to the offerer and adds information about the blocks submitted at the corresponding price.

4. Solve the problem that the prediction cannot be automatically ended after the price prediction expires.

* Solve the problem of off-chain signature verification caused by restriction error when verifying data after passing off-chain signature.

5. price prediction will create the exact price prediction that will cause the money collusion in the winner.

* The problem is that the previous forecast is not cleared, such as into the “review state,” the later forecast is created to write new prices to the internal, at this time, if the first forecast is cleared, the funds of the two prophecies will be cleared uniformly.

* A new storage structure is added to record the total amount of funds corresponding to each forecast instead of calculating the total amount from the account balance.

Price Forecast

1. When creating a price forecast, the range forecast and the accurate price forecast each detect if a trading pair is in progress and if so, cannot create a new forecast.

2. Modify the way to get the total reward for the price forecasts I participate in, range forecasts, and accurate price forecasts, respectively. 3.

3. Modify the layout of the bottom navigation.

4. Fix the problem: when I click winner on the price forecast page, I can’t jump to the winner details list page.

Other updates

1. Add transaction fees to the browser transaction details page.

2. Fix the inaccurate display of pledge mining rewards.
