    1. Omniwallet
      1. Back and catching up/Handling support
  • Zathras
    1. Omni Explorer:
      1. Recovered several outages due to load spikes burning through allowed resources, ready & keen to go live with new infra
      2. Working on a fix for a set of circumstances that could cause the API to report there were no transactions in a block, when in fact there were
    2. Omni Core:
      1. Fixed spam log entries from unconfirmed transactions (https://github.com/OmniLayer/omnicore/pull/505)
      2. Working on an update to Omni Core that will persistently store the reason for a transaction being invalid and enable query via RPC (instead of requiring log review)
      3. Revisiting send-many, believe I have a technically viable solution to send-many that supports up to 10x recipients within 80 byte nulldata
    3. General:
      1. Support tickets
  • Sean
    1. Online discussion of Omni “safe address” proposals with Marv, Zathras, Dexx
    2. Rivetz work
  • Patrick
    1. Speaking on behalf of Ale/Lihk, xTrade re-write and priceMap changes in effect. Going to ship a basic logic test for these values soon.
    2. Following up with build for establishing createContract on testnet and RPC for returning info on contract

  • Patrick
    1. Flow diagram’ed for settlement algo, researching graph theory for last function, have defined:
      1. settlementFlowLoop
      2. getLiveContracts function
      3. Index of nettings produced as bi-product of getLiveContracts function
      4. Last piece of the puzzle is graph function to find net-zero shortest paths for final settlement
    2. Waterfall flow established for logic prototypes -> C++ code -> test suite -> live testing->optimization -> more testing->maybe launch
