In case you missed our May update- we have gossiping nodes!


#1

We’re setting up basic testing and infrastructure for the project with a MVP that we can rapidly iterate on. The below video demonstrates our unit tests for the required operations. We have UDP peer to peer operations tested, a variety of signing/transaction data tests, and a full end-to-end test where we spin up 3 fake nodes and have them start a blockchain from scratch, issue transactions, gossip to each other in a peer-to-peer fashion, and create blocks.

The test is using code that doesn’t include any previous cryptographic dependencies (apart from generic encryption libraries) — in other words, this implements the most basic of blockchains from scratch and demonstrates the core functionality with no copy/paste solutions from another coin.

More sneak peeks to come:

@shreyas thanks for sharing this is a great example of our progress. We will have much more to show, very soon.
