Greetings, Mintlayers!

The summer months continue to buzz with activity, and August has been no exception. Our team has been tirelessly working on refining our products, preparing for new releases, and diving deep into testing and analysis. Without further ado, let’s delve into the specifics of our progress this month.

Core Development Update

Testnet v0.1.2 Preparations: We’re gearing up for the release of version 0.1.2 of the testnet. This release is not only pivotal in addressing observed bugs but also brings exciting new features on board.

Testnet Analysis: Our team has relentlessly tested the testnet, leading to invaluable debugging and analysis, ensuring we consistently elevate our standards.

Blockchain Interaction Software: A noteworthy development this month is the work on our software that interfaces between a node and the block explorer. This will open up pathways for us and the community to effectively interact with our blockchain.

Wallet Upgrades: Both the CLI (Command Line Interface) and GUI (Graphical User Interface) wallets have seen significant advancements. Our team is committed to ensuring these wallets are robust, user-friendly, and secure.

Mempool Refinements: Further refinements and changes have been made in our mempool to ensure efficiency and optimal performance.

P2P Advancements: A lot of work has been dedicated to peer-to-peer (P2P) functionalities, bolstering our network’s efficiency and reliability.

Testnet Hardfork Preparation: In an effort to test and assure our network’s adaptability, we’re laying the groundwork for a testnet hardfork.

Web and Mobile Development

Mojito Wallet Enhancements: Our continuous effort to integrate Mintlayer with the Mojito wallet has seen steady progress. This integration will ensure a seamless experience for our users.

Mobile Wallet Updates: A series of minor, yet crucial, tweaks have been made to our mobile wallet, ensuring it remains current and user-friendly.

Block Explorer Efforts: We’ve invested significant resources into developing our block explorer, aiming to provide users with an intuitive and comprehensive tool to track transactions and blocks.


August has, once again, been a testament to our team’s relentless dedication and passion. With every passing month, we get closer to our vision, and your continuous support fuels our momentum.
