The Songbird canary network has been updated. The updates will activate on Monday 7th March in the first of two stages of preparation for launching the State Connector.

This update brings:

Easier code base upgrades & maintenance

Updated build system with latest Go support

Granular control over available APIs & pruning

Dynamic fees for transactions

Snowman++ leader-based consensus

Gossiping of memory pool transactions

Performance improvements & bug fixes

Deployment on Songbird of State Connector code

Deployment & activation of State Connector code on Coston

[……]

State Connector

This release includes the State Connector code, which has already been activated on the Coston network for testing.

On Songbird, this is the first of two updates planned before activation of the State Connector later in March. A separate post will follow in the near future with detail on the second update.

  • Seoulite changed the title to Finally! March 7th state connector upgrades begin (new blog post, Twitter thread)

A couple of things I’ve noticed that have changed:

— block times have slowed a bit but I am guessing this is some teething problems for the updates

— at the same time transactions seem to be higher per block so maybe this is part of the update, far more blocks with more than just one transaction

— fees much much lower. doing my usual FF claim/stake cycle and the transaction fees were around 0.000something SGB. Very welcome, especially since the swap fee on FF works usually be around 0.3 SGB.

From our perspective, our price submission "availability" has now been 100% since the update.

The "availability" metric refers to how often a provider successfully submits pricing in a given period. Prior to the update we were, at best, running 90% over a 6hr period.

With many providers submitting around the same time towards the end of the epoch it wasn't uncommon for several to have a failed submission.

We are GO on Monday ...

 


 

This is pretty much me:

 

 

I get that it’s a roll out of a important infrastructure feature,  and I commend and congratulate them on that,  but I do not understand how S -Assets will lead to improved token price or returns.

 

Is it the beginning of staking rewards for XRP?  Or anything along those lines?  I feel a bit thick…

At the moment we are still in the rolling out phase of the test network. Basically nothing is really live so there is no demand or usage beyond speculation. That can only start to change once the protocols are up and running. 
 

Meanwhile Flare has changed their Twitter banner to “connect everything”. When they decided to really ramp up their vision for this project I hope they thought it through enough.
