Gander v3 is Live

As we reported in the June 15 newsletter, Expanse Founder and CEO, Christopher Franko, defined the specifications for Gander v3. The specs include a slew of enhancements and new features. So as not to have Gander offline for any length of time, we took the approach of adding enhancements as they were  complete. Read the release notes in the Gander channel on our Discord to learn more about the details.

Here’s a recap of the enhancements that comprise Gander v3, all of which are now live:

  • Users can use our public API to get decoded information of transactions, blocks and uncles.
  • Contract input decoding script is in place and been tested right now, so in future you can view decoded contract input so they can be understandable.
  • All new graphs so anyone can view what’s happening on the network.

Gander Release Progress

As we reported last month, Expanse Founder and CEO, Christopher Franko, defined the specifications for Gander v3. The specs include a slew of enhancements and new features. So as not to have Gander offline for any length of time, we’ve taken the approach of adding enhancements as we can. Today Asim outlined the following Gander additions since the last newsletter article, all of which will be live by the end of this week:

  • User can use our public API to get decoded information of transactions, blocks and uncles.
  • Contract input decoding script is in place and been tested right now, so in future you can view decoded contract input so they can be understandable.
  • Team is doing research on Block Reorg as per the directions by Chris for the remaining task of Gander.
  • All new graphs so anyone can view what’s happening on the network.

Gander v3

The best laid plans. A whole slew of enhancements and new features comprise Gander v3. However, there was some urgency expressed to get it back online, so we did. The portion yet to come includes:

  • An API that (enables us to submit transaction to the node via the website.
  • Web sockets developers can connect to.
  • Ability to submit raw transactions.
  • Ability to track complete blocks and transactions.

This project was one of two primary focuses for the developers last week. Everyone helped, including some design work by Omar and content from me.
