Dear Aresians, here we are! Welcome to the [Polkadot Ecological Project Ares Protocol Weekly Update].

The third phase of the testing network Gladios node test has been officially launched on June 1, with 40+ nodes successfully connected. It needs to be reminded here that in order to ensure that the node finally gets the event reward, please be sure to verify on the chain and leave your telegram username as well as your BSC address. If the project cannot obtain relevant information in a timely manner, your reward collection may be affected.

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

Development progress of this week

Ares Chain

1. Modified the processing method of final types in validator review rules. The previous rule was that the validator would delete the review task after submitting the review so that the front end failed to obtain the final type of review task. The new rule will not delete the completed task within one day.

2. Upgraded the staking_extends module. It is able to adapt to the number of validator lists automatically to ensure that the election will not enter into the Emergency status.

3. Adjusted XRay’s write rules. It is adjusted from writing once per era to writing once in every 20 blocks so that validators can quickly query Xray data.


1. Fixed the problem of the System.KilledAccount Event not being processed correctly

2. Upgraded the angular version to solve the problem of version conflict compilation error

3. Added the Polkadot dependency package to solve the incompatibility problem of the new version of the dependency package

4. Added the reason query of validator collecting reward and validator status failure

5. Optimized the page to display the reward collection data, with the data of the same validator displayed in groups

6. Faucet fixed the problem that the client will automatically exit after the reconnection fails

Other updates

1. Added loading animation on the price prediction page

2. Solved the problem of formatting the date displayed on the trading pair in the price prediction

3. Trojan-box implemented the proxy of the contract

4. Trojan-box finalized the random algorithm of the contract

Market & Community Weekly

The third round of node testing

What does the node need to do to join the test? You need to complete the following steps:

1. Deploy/update the validator node program

2. Set the latest Session Keys

3. Pass the validation verification and produce the blocks and quotes continuously

Node activation reward

From June 1st to June 14th, we will collect the online status of nodes on working days based on the Gladios validator penalty mechanism. It needs to run 24 hours a day, and currently supports Linux systems and Docker running nodes. This node testing round will last for 10 working days (two weeks), with a reward of 1000 ARES/day given every day. For those penalized nodes, the daily reward is halved, that is, the reward of 500 ARES/day.

Please make sure you are in our node tg group (Ares Protocol Node Miner) so that we could send you the latest information and rewards in a convenient and timely manner.
