First of all, we extend our gratitude to all participants in the Tropos-5 Incentive Testnet. Together we have achieved the most stable network to date. The stability of the participating nodes and the exceptional performance is notable. Our upload/download performance surpasses that of all existing decentralized storage solutions. We now have around 4000 active Resource Nodes for Tropos-5, and we can quickly complete uploading/downloading a file of 500 MB within 15s.

During the previous sprint, we meticulously monitored the performance of Tropos-5 and resolved some configuration problems in the Metanode Network. Currently, we are carrying out code cleaning and making preparations for a security audit.

We have completed some performance enhancements on the Stratos Chain REST API and finished the refactoring of the Web3 API for improved performance.

A couple of issues related to the SDS and Metanode configuration command tool have also been addressed. Furthermore, we are working on improving the gas calculation on the Metanode side. As we introduced the Minimal Gas Price constraint on Stratos Chain, gas consumption has caused people some trouble using the command tools if they didn’t pay attention to the gas-related parameters before. We are updating the documentation and related logs to make it cleaner.

We have refactored the SDS node State Machine for better code readability with no impact on node performance. This reorganization will facilitate auditing.

The wallet should be released soon. Additionally, we discovered some minor graphical glitches on the desktop wallet and are fixing them. The wallet release is imminent.
