Router Protocol: Development Update (May 18)

Development updates

Last week updates

  • Integration of Harmony, Cronos, and Aurora on the Router app has been completed on staging. We will now be testing the 3 chains.
  • Integration of Terra on Router app halted for now — before making the halt, we finalized the contracts for Terra. We are closely monitoring the Terra ecosystem and will begin efforts on this as soon as we have some concrete next steps from the Terra side.
  • Dynamic gas price module — completed efforts on dynamically passing the gas price on the destination transaction based on the congestion on the destination chain.

This week’s focus

  • JS SDK — continued effort on JS SDK which will allow projects to integrate cross-chain swaps/transfers from their applications
  • Testing for following integrations — Harmony, Cronos, Aurora chain integrations, 1Inch integration, Dynamic gas price module integration
  • Integration of staking contract on the Router UI
  • Widget improvements — provide a bias towards certain dex based on the requirement of the partner integrating the widget. This would be useful for our partnerships with various Dexes for widget integration
  • Voting optimization — we have started a project to optimize our voting mechanism with a focus on reducing the overall voting cost and making it more scalable for being able to add more validators in the future for the voting on the destination chain

Router CrossTalk (Solidity SDK) progress

  • Video explaining the end-to-end integration for Router CrossTalk library to create a cross-chain application will be available on Youtube in next few days.

Audit Updates

  • The staking and CrossTalk contracts have been given for audit. The tentative timeline for completion is the last week of May.
  • Router bridge contracts' completion date remains 25th May.

Marketing Updates

This was a truly special week for all the developers in our community. We just released the Alpha Launch of CrossTalk Library which can be integrated in dev-environments. Check out the release at:

As you might know, our first-ever trading contest: Voyages 1.0 is currently underway. This contest has truly captured the competitiveness of community members. Don’t take our word for it. You can track the ranking of all the participants in real-time from our dynamic leaderboard. The leaderboard is currently live at:

Finally, we have an update for Router NFT. If you follow this space, you’d be aware that with a prize pool of over 3000 $ROUTE, we decided to crowdsource the entire project. Well, we are in the final stages of selecting the submitted entries and will be releasing the results sometime next week.

We have added Alpha Seeker and Neil Smallwood as honory community admins on our Telegram community.
