State of the Layer: All Hands – March 08 2016

  • Craig
    1. Been travelling all over the place, speaking about Omni, Tether, and digital objects
      1. Amsterdam: d10e conference
      2. Zurich: digital objects
      3. Taiwan: spoke at the National Taiwan University and Taiwan Academy of Banking and Finance
        1. Will be working with professor on adding Omni to the blockchain curriculum at the most prestigious university in Taiwan!
    2. Interesting discussions around ethereum scripting
      1. What would it take to snag the pyethereum code and try some small contracts on testnet?
      2. We have some serious third-party interest in doing this to increase Bitcoin capabilities without a fork discussion
    3. Nested smart properties….?
      1. Looking to integrate “folders” within the protocol
      2. Each asset could use a “parent-id” field to designate the “folder” property that “contains” it
        1. Either pre-existing assets could be used for this purpose, or a generic “folder creation” transaction could create a meta-asset with an id that could be used to contain other assets
      3. A single transaction of a smart property/folder would move the asset as well as any asset in the same address with the first asset’s id.
    4. Many more ideas coming … will be back home next week and will update the team.  Looking forward to giving everyone some exciting updates!

  • Sean
    1. OmniClientJS
      1. Github repository renamed from OmniTradeJS
      2. OmniClient is now a class and initialized with new operator
      3. All methods from earlier implementation are available and support Promises.

    2. www.omnilayer.org
      1. Finishing download page later today

  • Zathras
    1. Few support requests for API help dealt with
    2. Assisted @dexx with consensus hashing debugging for his 0.12 work
    3. Prototype of fees working(ish) – fees are stripped from the liquidity taker and moved into a cache which maintains a 50 block history (for cases of reorgs).  When distribution threshold reached fees are distributed via existing STO logic.  Next stage will be developing adaptive distribution threshold (currently fixed for testing).
