Loopring Bi-Weekly Update — 02/02/2019

Due to the Chinese New Year holidays, our next bi-weekly update will be released on March 3rd. Happy and healthy holidays to all celebrating!

This post was originally published on our blog on Feb 2, 2019.

Protocol 2.0

In Protocol development, we have implemented, deployed and tested the ST20 security token standard, that of Polymath, on Ethereum mainnet. It’s a relatively simple version of a security token, and a precursor to the ERC1400 standard which we have also implemented support for.

Besides that, we have continued working with the Dora team on order matching on our application-specific sidechain and integration tests.

We have also further specified Protocol 3.0, and begun development. We will share more information with the community on this as soon as possible. It has us extremely excited!

Relay

Lightcone (Relay 2.0)

During the last two weeks, we have continued optimizations for Relay 2.0. We have implemented line charts, customized token, trade history, order cancellation and so on. To improve the system stability, we are going to review all functionalities and workflows. We have completed review for order submission and order recovery. In addition, we have implemented test environment deployment, logging, monitoring and alerts. We have written API documents for new API endpoints. We believe that we are going to launch the Relay in production environment very soon.

Frontend & Product

iOS & Android

UP Wallet has released version 1.6.1 and 1.6.2, which focuses on optimizations for the cryptocurrency news feed section. You can now read cryptocurrency news by tokens now. At the same time, we have improved UI and updated icons in many pages. We have fixed bugs in the DEX component in the Android app, improving the app stability. Check out iOS and Android.
