We have also worked on improving connectivity issue management.
There has been some generic software maintenance and we updated the roadmap for the app.
Core Development Update
We have continued working on the Mintlayer wallet and aspects of key derivation. This includes seed phrase generation, and the derivation path.
This month we merged the last database components. We have completed more work on the concurrency issues in the LMDB (Lightning Memory-Mapped Database) library.
We have been working on refactoring the mempool.
We have completed a lot of work on the proof-of-stake consensus mechanism this month.
There has been more work on P2P - our team is making plans for dropping libp2p as a dependency after a number of issues, and will use our own implementation instead.
Our development team met in person this month to discuss some of the more complex issues that come up anytime you work in uncharted territory. We are progressing as planned, and we are still hiring . If you are a developer with blockchain experience, we would love to have you a part of our team.
