Our intrepid grantees have been holding busy as at all times – learn on for some latest accomplishments 🏆
ENS (Ethereum Title Service) runs on the Ethereum blockchain, but it surely’s not only for ETH addresses! ENS maps human-readable domains to areas all throughout the distributed net, together with ethereum and different blockchain addresses, Tor .onion addresses, decentralized web sites and information hashes saved on IPFS, and extra. ENS continues to broaden its attain, with latest integrations together with:
That is removed from the whole lot – learn the ENS 2020 Retrospective for a recap of a reasonably packed yr, observe ENS on Twitter @ensdomains and take a look at the 2021 roadmap to see what’s subsequent.
IPLD is a knowledge structuring framework utilized in IPFS. Textile and 3Box acquired a mixed grant, joint funded with Protocol Labs, to create a signing and encryption normal to allow higher composability and interoperability between web3 functions whereas holding consumer information sovereign. All work funded by this grant has now been accomplished, together with:
Ethereum builders can already combine JOSE requirements resembling JWE and JWS into their IPLD-based dApps, and there is extra to come back! This work is a part of a long run effort to extend information interoperability throughout IPFS/IPLD-based apps and instruments.
For extra, you may observe principal investigators carsonfarmer and oed, who proceed to interact with the group round this venture; observe Textile on Twitter @textileio, weblog.textile.io or Slack; and 3box on Twitter @3boxdb, medium.com/3box or Discord!
bitfly for beaconcha.in eth2 block explorer
Because the launch of the beacon chain approached, the bitfly staff needed to verify there was an open supply eth2 block explorer from day 1. beaconcha.in has change into that and rather more, with a treasure trove of sources for Ethereum stakers and fanatics together with:
- Rising eth2 information base
- Extensive number of trackers and visualizations together with charts with information on liveness, participation, complete stake and extra
- Cell app for monitoring eth2 validators
However wait, there’s extra!
- Unirep non-public and non-repudiable popularity system: accomplished sensible contracts, CLI and zk circuits
- MPC Part 2 UI: accomplished design and specification; developed parts together with server, CLI and browser shopper
Extra to come back subsequent month!
