6 min readApr 19, 2022


At the moment, the transfer of the former pool has continued to take place. Up to now, Trojan and Iliad’s old regular staking products have terminated. Each language community disseminates the information, enabling members to withdraw their deposits and rewards as cited in the former update that the old pool APY will drop to an unprofitable 0.01%. Users should reach out to the newly launched page to claim rewards; however, the former staked transactions still require users to claim deposits on the old site.

Here, we share every bit of Ares.

Development Progress of the Week

Ares Chain

  • Upgrade THE Vec structure of OW-suit/ARES-Oracle to BoundedVec with updates above Polkadot-0.9.17.

  • Fixed — spec_name does not match during dev startup.
  • Project side fixed invalid fast-Runtime compilation parameters.
  • Submit changes to HostKey functionality in ‘Validator Audit’ in the blockchain browser.
  • Optimize staking-extend, remove pallets -session modules, and reduce warnings during compilation
  • Staking is otherwise unacceptable in a test chain:

* The algorithm used for the election. If you vote for more than one Validator, the algorithm will try to group the other votes into a single Validator for chain-based storage and security reasons.

* When upgrading Polkadot0.9.15, after adding BagsList, no upgrade method is invoked manually, so BagsList initialization fails

The New Pools of the Trojan & Iliad

Regarding the future blueprint of the Ares, it’s carrying out a complete upgrade on the Trojan& Iliad. Following the upgrade, new taking modes will appear on the new site, featured at 270 and 360 days with a higher APY. Tech support guys upgraded the staking contract to offer safer technological support. The Trojan Box integrates into the new staking sites with entertaining features and high returns.

What is the difference between new and old pools?

1. The regular products have upgraded, newly added 270 and 360 days, with adjusted APY.
2. The contract is upscaled with a new contract address.
3. We newly added {Restake} options; after the user completed staking time, you could retake the deposits.
4. The former pool continues to generate rewards in a post-staked state, but the new pool does not generate profits after the staking period; users should claim the rewards once they finish the staking.

Since this week, Trojan &Iliad regular pools have transferred to the new page. Up till now, Trojan & Iliad regular products have already shut down staking options. Each language community should actively guide the users who have finished their staking period to claim rewards and deposits before 15th April at 4 pm UTC. The old site faces subsequent change right after the date, with an APY of 0.01%. You could claim rewards on the new site and claim deposits from the old site.

The old site will be available for claiming deposits till all the users finish their terms. We highly recommend the users be aware of their staking dates, claim their deposits from the old pools, and withdraw their rewards on the new page. The latest upgrade needs support and investment from the users.
