CR Herald Biweekly on updates of the Elastos communities!👇

Community dynamics

English community

● The Tuum team had on online tech meetup, sharing “how to use DID in applications”.

Chinese community

● On June 21, the Blockchain Innovation Forum 2020 launched by Jinse Finance at the Intercontinental Hotel of China OCT in Shenzhen concluded a success. Mr. Han Feng, co-founder of Elastos, showed up at the event, joining the round table panel discussion on Ten-Year Evolution of Blockchain. As for the most pressing issue with the encryption industry, Han Feng held, “it makes no sense if the new blockchain infrastructure cannot protect the safety and ownership of personal date.”

At the side event themed “Rise of Private Traffic and New Wealth Internet” during the Shenzhen Blockchain Week, Mr. Wang Ding, founder of Tiantian Youyu, shared the challenges resulted from being unable to identify the ownership of the game assets and how blockchain helps address them. By changing the landscape where data is controlled by the Internet giants, blockchain returns data to users. Tiantian Youyu is launched under this paradigm. By identifying the rights of the users via real-name authentication and new user invitation, Tiantian Youyu brings about interests to the users, giving full play to the role of the private traffic pool created from social fission.

BrianXin, team leader of ElastosDMA, shared that the notion “data as private assets” is growing into a global consensus while the consensus on digital wealth cannot be reached without technology foundation and corresponding operating and business models, all being the prerequisites to launch the next-generation infrastructure of wealth Internet driven by business and centering on data.

● Beginning with The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith, Mr. Han Feng as the first rotation curator of the Chinese Museum of Funds shared how human civilization relies on free market trade for evolution. Large-scale international trade requires the evolution of human cognition, i.e. reaching global consensus on wealth without calculating the use value. He reviewed the evolution of the consensus on wealth, from shells to encrypted digital assets.

● On June 23, Mr. Han Feng visited Eternal Asia for cooperation negotiation.

CR proposals

The first CR Committee is established. After one-year preparation and thanks to the participation of all community members, the community autonomy of Elastos is well underway towards the era of Main Network 3.0 Arcadia.

Several proposals are discussed over the past two weeks. Now let’s go through some of them.

Elastos ecosystem

● CR Herald releases the review about the new features of elastOS application. Download and try them out dApps!

Application 10: elastOS 1.2.0

Application 11: Hyper, a ready-to-use de-centralized chatting tool. It integrates the DID sidechain of Elastos, allowing the users to create the unique address and user ID. Empowered by Elastos Carrier, it supports point-to-point communication. With Hyper, user identification and communication takes place in a decentralized manner. Contacts, messages and files are stored on the users’ local devices only. The anonymity and safety enables the users to control private data.

GreenPass Column

GreePass 1.5.4 release notes:

1. Add: QR code scanning (Android)

Allow users to scan the QR code.Click on Scan in the top-right corner of the homepage and get to the scanning page. Click on Album in the bottom-right corner to choose an image with QR code. GreenPass will identify the code.

Note: The iOS version is under optimization and review and will be released soon.

2. Add: Support to share the appointment QR code (Android)

In addition to the appointment sharing link, the appointment QR code sharing feature is added. Click on Share on the Location page and then on Download to save the QR code into your local album.

Note: The iOS version is under optimization and review and will be released soon.

3. Fix bugs for better user experience

KEY DATA TRACKING

With the continuous development of The Modern Internet, Elastos ecology has been popularized all over the world. So we have collated the current important data updates so that communities can understand the development trend of the project.

● The peak-peak of combined ELA computing power is approximately equal to 67.45% of the network-based computing power of BTC.

Data source: 

● The supernodes election campaign had 95 candidates as showed by statistical summary. They were 33 from Chinese community, 49from overseas communities and 13 from ecological partners; the voting by those nodes accounted for 16.63 % of the network-based voting.

Data source: ELA Wallet

Data of code updates

Elastos codebase contains a large number of projects, including main chain, side chain, Trinity, Carrier and wallet codes. SDK codes of all varieties provide methods of calling and authentication for different programming languages.

At present, Elastos GitHub database contains more than 100 subproject codebases to facilitate community members and developers to view GitHub database, conduct easy retrievals and view code updates. The community developers provide relevant code activity statistical tools, and regularly classify and copy daily active codebases to the designated statistical bank so that code updates and code activity can be acquired by calling data of the statistical bank with statistical tools.

According to the data provided by the community development team, 22 daily active codebases have been established since 2018, and data statistics tools are mainly for capturing the relevant data of these 22 codebases and establishing a statistical bank for centralized display.

Website of the statistical bank:

Based on the statistical bank, the cumulative data are shown in the following figure. After the first statistics, CR Herald will display code changes on a monthly basis.

Data from blockchain evaluation agencies

Ranking of market value, as an indicator of the industry value of a blockchain, has always been attracting the attention of blockchain communities. Here, we demonstrate the rankings by authoritative Coinmarketcap, feixiaohao and Coincodecap.

● Elastos is ranked 154th by CMC in terms of market value; ELA turnover is 18,417,952; the circulation market value is USD26,203,301.

(Data source:https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/elastos/ratings/)

● On blockchain project code rating platforms, the code activity of Elastos is constantly updated. On Coincodecap for example, its yearly activity rank is 15th and overall rank 21st.

Coincodecap is a data website dedicated to tracking GitHub updates of blockchain projects, and has now tracked more than 700 projects by capturing GitHub data. It is authoritative in blockchain project codes and other technical updates.
