As a tech secretary of Ergo Foundation, I am going to provides weekly updates for ecosystem developments, based on weekly chats happening over Discord (every Wed @ 1 PM UTC).
Current focus for Ergo Foundation is about stimulating delivery of DEX, cross-chain gateways (w. Gravity), and Ledger integration. However, as usually, other actors can deliver some other applications (it happened before already).
- Contracts for both orderbook-based and AMM (automatic market-maker) DEXes are ready and in EIP-14 draft
- Orders matcher is ready (actually, delivered many weeks ago)
- However, for orderbook-based DEX good UI is hard. Thus AMM DEXes were chosen due to popularity and simple UI.
Gravity (by @mhs_sam ): "
Contracts for nebula and Gravity are published: gravity-core/nebula.scala at dev · mhssamadani/gravity-core · GitHub , gravity-core/gravity.scala at dev · mhssamadani/gravity-core · GitHub
Gravity is in Golang. in order to provide functionalities, communications and offchain logic, we’re making a Gravity_Ergo_Proxy in Scala:
Gravity-Ergo-Proxy/ApiController.scala at dev · mhssamadani/Gravity-Ergo-Proxy · GitHub
This proxy will reside between gravity and ergo node and do the jobs seamlessly.
Functionalities required by gravity is adding to this project gradually "
- Previous developer hasn’t delivered Ledger. Now a new contractor (a small company) is found, all the details pre-agreed, wait for an announcement and Ledger integration to be done in 3 months.
In next updates more on wallets, DApp bridge, node development and research.
