    Dex Version 0.9.0 Beta

    This version marks the first beta version. There are some unstable items within this, but they will be identified more clearly with user testing. Expect at least two more beta version before production version is released. Before production we will release a beta-final version. That has all polish done, and any future updates would be for hotfixing bugs only, no new features. Change Logs: Dex Frontend - Removed all prisma subscriptions - Added pusher pubsub - Subscriptions are fixed and live data all comes through now - Added landing page with statistics on tokens - Improved order book aggregate algorithm to be more performant - Drastically reduced application memory consumption - Trading View volume fixed - Trading View wicks fixed - Sidebar ticker is now live updated - Trading View now pulls live data from pusher - Trading View grabs exact 30 second intervals - Drastically reduced amount of data sent with each updated - Fixed clicking order populating order form - Fixed balances subscription - Fixed trades subscription - Fixed user orders subscription - Fixed creating orders - Fixed cancel order subscription - Fixed balances page not updating correctly - Fixed order matching - Fixed issue where dex would not know if user is buying or selling when making a trade Dex Backend - Faster order and contract event processing - Publish live events to pusher - Multi-threaded processes for watching contract - Improved prisma data storage - Clustered public API and load balanced - New message types of live data - New ticker format for 24 hour moving 30 second frame - Fixed ticker volumes and wicks for trading view to consume - Fixed data to be referenced by token number and not token address

    When I click Education.....

    It’s not open to the public yet, it was empty and I didn’t want it open until there was actual content in there. Which it seems Scott W has been adding stuff to it. So I’ll open it up tomorrow when I’m in the office.

    You are hitting it on the nail there. We are working towards that exact thing!
  11. Halo-Shannon


    Hey there! Thanks for coming and asking, as those are very valid questions. I cannot answer the question about HALO being listed on an external exchange, however, I can address the rest of the question. First, I'd like to explain how we do our processes internally, and how that affects releases. Because of the nature of software and software development, there are always unknown factors. These unknown factors or edge cases can be a really big thorn in developers sides. Since these edge cases exist we as a company policy do not release any product directly from development into a live environment. So when we make an announcement that something will be live by X date then it is assumed on our end that this means live on a testnet or alpha/beta period. That being said, the plan was always to release to testnet first and not to mainnet. Secondly, we believe that end users have a say in how our applications flow, handle, and feel. This is why we release software as an alpha or beta state to testnet. This is not only to have the community help us find edge case bugs, but to also give us feedback on the interface and user experience. We take that feedback and use it to build a better and more refined end product. In case you are not aware we define four stages of an application when in development here at Halo Platform Development - This is purely internal development and most of the time not very transparent as a lot of things change and go back and forth. The entirety of the code base could change if we have a tech change or a hard blocker towards a route we were taking. Alpha - This is an unstable, bug filled, testnet release meant to give the initial feel of the platform and to have community help to refine it. This release does not particularly reflect what the end product will be. Beta - This is a more stable release to testnet. We will have addressed initial community concerns but continue to refine the platform. This release better reflects the end product. Production - This is a stable release to mainnet that is the end product. The answer to the question of "When will it be ready for live mainnet use" is... when it is ready. We will commit to doing often and continuous releases to fix issues and bugs as they appear, as well as add polish. The system for depositing eth is still not deployed to testnet but we hope to deploy it this week in its alpha state. Currently, I still view the dex as Alpha as there are rare issues with WebSockets that we need to track the bugs down and figure out how to eliminate the case were events are propagated properly. Now to answer what happened and why was it late, that is a bit easier to answer. We scheduled to launch to testnet on August 15th, and we successfully launched on August 16th. The reason that it was a day late was two-fold. We had the WebSocket issue that was preventing event propagation but it was much much worse. Systems that had been working in development for a while all of a sudden stopped working. (This happens in software development, it's called a development regression). We worked to finish fixing this and we were confident in fixing it. We finally found some major issues and had them resolved on the 15th of August. However, at this time it was well into the day (Late at night for our developers). We made a humane decision for the sake of our developers and community. We decided to not deploy until we had let our developers off for the night and come back in the morning with fresh and rested minds. This was to prevent any sudden issues from exhaustion from popping up during deployment. All in all, it took us a few hours to fully deploy and get all of our code moved through our release cycle, and so we released late afternoon on the 16th of August. I know I went into a lot of detail, and probably too much detail. However, I wanted the community to have all the facts and to understand how our processes work. If you have any further questions on this please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks, Shannon

    What If?

    Let's play a game. What if you could add or take away any feature of the Masternode DAPP, what would you do?

    Async Iterators and GraphQL awesomeness!

    Find final code here: https://gist.github.com/shadowcodex/587cd0ffbf49cefd3a00a56caf7a5f11 So we recently adopted to using graphQL on our backend for a lot of our systems. It provides a ton of benefits such as: Faster front-end prototyping Built-in pub-sub Easy event-driven systems Better bandwidth handling and not over pulling or under pulling data And so much more... Those are just a few of the reasons we are working with graphQL now, and we have to say we love it. The new DEX is built on it with a special flow that I'll do another post on someday, however, I wanted to focus on something very specific that isn't covered in the documentation of graphQL and that is handling subscriptions on the server side. Specifically, we use Prisma as our backend graphQL service and with it comes prisma-bindings. It's great, and they have several examples of how to work with mutations and queries. No examples of subscriptions exist. So to first work with them you have to understand that subscriptions in prisma-bindings return async Iterators. If you are familiar with javascript async/await then you will know that async means that it happens without waiting on it (more or less). So to work with these you have to handle the iterator to get the values you want. So how does it work? Well first you grab your subscription, I'm going to work off of the following data model: # Information around an address type User { id: ID! @unique # Unique id autogenerated by system // remove if you don't want two unique paramenters. address: String! # The halo address of the user lastSeen: String! # Unix Epoch Time of Last Event Containing this User } This means that Prisma will handle creating a few functions for us like createUser, updateUser, query Users, and subscription user. So to subscribe using prisma bindings we use the following code: prisma.subscription.user({}, "{ node { id } }") So we pass it our search options which in this case is {} or none. Then we well it what we want back from the subscription. Now if you were just to log out this you would get an object that looks like: { next: [Function: next], return: [Function: return], throw: [Function: throw], '@@asyncIterator': [Function] } Which is quite useless. However, if you know what you are looking at you can use to your advantage. We know there is a function called "next()" on the returned iterator. When working with iterators the function "next()" will return the next item in the list, now if you apply that to an async iterator then it will return a promise for the "next()" function. When the promise resolves, the values will give us what we wanted in the first place. Once next resolves you can call it, again and again, to continue getting objects as they are passed into the iterator. Ok I can call it and wait for promise to resolve and use ".then()" to grab the value, but that sounds tedious. And it is. Instead we can use await and a while loop to pick up all the next events as they come in. See the following code: while (true) { await iterator .next() .then(value => { callback(null, value.value); }) .catch(err => { callback(err, null); }); } So here we do: Start loop Wait for next to resolve Do something with the value it returns Loop back to await next item If you throw this in with a call back system you get something like this: const handleIty = async (iterator, callback) => { while (true) { await iterator .next() .then(value => { callback(null, value.value); }) .catch(err => { callback(err, null); }); } }; Where you can pass in your iterator and callback function of your choice. Your callback will be what function you want to fire when the iterator.next() resolves. If you remember the prisma-binding subscription resolved into an async iterator so you can use this to process and "watch" it as new events plow through. So a fully running system watching the user table for any new changes would look like so: const { Prisma } = require("prisma-binding"); const prisma = new Prisma({ typeDefs: "./../generated/prisma.graphql", endpoint: "http://localhost:4466", }); const handleIty = async (iterator, callback) => { while (true) { await iterator .next() .then(value => { callback(null, value.value); }) .catch(err => { callback(err, null); }); } }; const handleValue = async (error, value) => { if (error) { console.log(error); return; } console.log(value); }; const run = async () => { const ity = await prisma.subscription.user({}, "{ node { id } }").catch(err => { console.log("error:", err); return; }); handleIty(ity, handleValue); }; run(); ---- This allows us to add items to the user table, and any system utilizing this will fire off the handleValue function. Essentially this allows our systems to react to data as it enters our database whether that data is from an API, a blockchain node, or a smart contract. After we launch the DEX we will talk more in depth of how we use this to power the DEX Frontend. Thanks guys, gals, and non-binary pals!

    Marketplace Buy section

    So similar to an exchange then. Maybe we could do something in the future on the DEX regarding this.

    DEX Version 0.3.0 Alpha

    Change Log: Fixed subscriptions for order book Fixed price chart display issues Added validation to withdraw/deposit You can now see your wallet balance when depositing/withdrawing funds into/out of the DEX Fixed sorting of Buy Orders Improved performance of Buy/Sell Order tables
  18. Halo-Shannon

    What If?

    That fix is coming. Hmmm. Future versions will allow you to terminate directly instead of through us... SO... this might be possible to auto combine. Or we could structure a batch transaction to do that.
  19. Halo-Shannon

    What If?

    So are you saying trade shares in one MN for shares in another?
  20. I'm from Central US, and I helped build it. Hah. Actually, I came in as an interested investor and talked with Scott and one thing lead to another and now here I am.
  21. Halo-Shannon

    What If?

    Interesting, if we start collecting this kind of data we could essentially show it to the user. Those are a little tricky because if earnings are way off of that, then are we or are we not liable for telling the user they were going to earn x amount. Will keep it in mind for sure.
  22. Halo-Shannon

    What If?

    aye, that's on my list. A pure transfer version. Oh yes. batch transactions are coming. Will do it all for you. I'm also working on another way where it's literally one function call to get the funds from all your nodes.
