Wakandi Sandbox version 1.1 released

We are excited to announce the release of Wakandi Sandbox version 1.1. The latest version comes with several improvements to make your experience better on the Wakandi network.

Let’s have a look at what the Sandbox version 1.1 has to offer. 

Flexibility in block creation 

While 1.0 relied on creating new blocks at the main-node, the new build opens up for the creation of blocks locally. This is done to enhance transactions per second (TPS), reduce latency and dependency on an operational, and available main-node.

Setup process optimization

The operator volume has remained limited in the early stages of the project. Now that the project progresses, we found improving the Operator setup was required. We have, therefore, worked on improving scripts for the setup and deployment process. This means that the network now supports concurrent setups. Furthermore, changes have been made in scripts for maintenance of the Operator Node to provide smoother experience in releasing future updates.

Directory service

Inter-operator collaboration is at the core of how Wakandi operates. This has driven us to implement a new directory service. It allows for easy user data management by the operators, as well as collaboration with other operators on the global network. Some key features of the service include:

  • Finding users of other Operators on the network using their phone number or email address.
  • Render user-wallets private, meaning they will not be searchable on the network. You can, however, reach the wallet by providing its full identity. Public wallets can be searched by other Operators and users to make transactions. By default, user wallets are created as private.
  • Additional APIs have been exposed for Operators to connect and get access to the user data.

Sandbox version 1.1 has been launched to make the environment more efficient for Operators. Needless to say, we continue to work tirelessly to improve the experience for our Operators. This announcement marks a step in that direction.
