Our intrepid grantees have been retaining busy as at all times – learn on for some current 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 places all throughout the distributed internet, together with ethereum and different blockchain addresses, Tor .onion addresses, decentralized web sites and knowledge hashes saved on IPFS, and extra. ENS continues to broaden its attain, with current integrations together with:
That is removed from all the things – learn the ENS 2020 Retrospective for a recap of a reasonably packed 12 months, observe ENS on Twitter @ensdomains and take a look at the 2021 roadmap to see what’s subsequent.
IPLD is an information 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 better composability and interoperability between web3 purposes whereas retaining consumer knowledge sovereign. All work funded by this grant has now been accomplished, together with:
Ethereum builders can already combine JOSE requirements comparable to 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 knowledge interoperability throughout IPFS/IPLD-based apps and instruments.
For extra, you possibly can observe principal investigators carsonfarmer and oed, who proceed to interact with the group round this challenge; observe Textile on Twitter @textileio, blog.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 crew needed to verify there was an open source eth2 block explorer from day 1. beaconcha.in has turn into that and far more, with a treasure trove of sources for Ethereum stakers and fans together with:
- Rising eth2 knowledge base
- Broad number of trackers and visualizations together with charts with knowledge on liveness, participation, complete stake and extra
- Mobile app for monitoring eth2 validators
However wait, there’s extra!
- Unirep non-public and non-repudiable repute system: accomplished good contracts, CLI and zk circuits
- MPC Phase 2 UI: accomplished design and specification; developed elements together with server, CLI and browser shopper
Extra to come back subsequent month!
