Recap: Enigma Open Community Call — November 2019
[23:00–33:00] Development updates (Guy and Victor)
“I can’t start to explain how deeply complicated and well-written the network we’ve been building is.”
The Discovery networked testnet will be deployed in December 2019!
“This is a huge milestone for us — but remember, this is testnet; it’s about testing the capabilities of our network, getting node runners engaged, getting developers engaged. This is the first deployment of several iterations of testnet before mainnet.”
What’s ahead of Enigma?
“A lot of the focus is on the product side… Going forward, we’re opening development up to any developer out there.”
Expect more hackathons and developer engagement in 2020, as well as more application development from the Enigma team!
“There’s a lot of interesting things we’ve been keeping on the back burner. You can expect us to work on things like native oracle support. You can expect us to move to a multi-worker setting… this basically means much more scalability and added security.”
Other important items for exploration in our roadmap: threshold signatures, MPC, a move to an independent blockchain and interoperability improvements.
- Introductions of various members of the Enigma development team
- We’re hiring! (Especially for developer ops)
“We have been about a year and a half, almost two years in development of this protocol, and we are on the very final stretch.”
The external audit has begun!
“It’s a thorough review by well-known auditors in this space… the audit is in its third week, halfway through. They have been reporting some good findings which we are actively addressing.”
“We have the infrastructure ready — meaning all the infrastructure we need to deploy the public testnet. It’s undergoing a thorough review and internal testing.”
We outsourced a UI for the Genesis Game as well as a Block Explorer.
“It’s just a matter of bringing it all together.”
