TABLE OF CONTENTS

As we make our way through Q1 2024, Analog has been tirelessly crafting its product and technical framework.

Here’s a glimpse into the remarkable recent progress of our project’s development journey!

Timechain

We have made major headway into enhancing our Timechain build, including:

  • Elections pallet: New Chronicle shards are now auto-elected in Timechain as soon as the shard is out of service or new nodes are available

  • Task pallet: Tasks are now instantiated optimally, and a new task type has been introduced to execute cross-chain SC methods and validate successful executions

  • TSS: TSS now supports ROAST protocol, enabling defining Thresholds for shards

  • Key recovery: Nodes that crash during an ongoing TSS session can now recover the shard key on availability

  • Debug logs trace: More detailed and better-correlated logs have been implemented for activity monitoring and debugging — devs using the Timechain can now easily track and interpret relevant on-chain operations

Analog's Public Testnet

Be among the first to experience Analog’s Timechain and the tools that power up the next generation of omnichain DApps.

Connectors

We have also made a number of improvements to the Connectors, including:

  • Opaque API: Chain Connectors are now have added flexibility in design. As long as the connecting network exposes the standard EVM RPC interface, connectors are compatible out of the box

  • Connectivity optimizations: Chain Connectors can now ensure stable delivery of payloads on the connected networks. They ensure all RPC requests are executed successfully in case of network-related problems, and return clear human-readable info logs

  • Codec for connectors: Chain-specific configurations are now deployed on Timechain, not requiring any changes to connectors

  • Arbitrum support: Analog Network now supports Arbitrum blockchain

Analog Watch

We have added to and refined the features of Analog Watch as well, including:

  • Views: The Watch architecture has been transitioned from relying on Collections as the basis for indexing data (i.e., an indexed collection of data from a single SC) to using Views. Analog Watch now indexes Views (i.e., artifacts that aggregate application-specific data from multiple SCs) in a few steps

  • Payments: The first iteration of tokenomics for the Watch has been implemented. Users can now stake $ANLOG tokens on Views to start the indexing process and get rewarded based on the number of queries the View has generated

  • Auto listing SCs: An auto listing feature for Ethereum SCs has been added. Users now only need to input an SC address into Analog Watch, and the platform will automatically display all the available indexing methods

  • Sync service: Additional services to the Watch backend has been added to improve data availability and fault tolerance

  • Error handling: Additions to the Watch UI prompts has been integrated for enhanced error logging

  • Authentication optimizations: A Wrapper to the authentication module to streamline UX has been added. For example, users can now provide the Substrate Signer to the SDK, enabling the SDK to generate an API key and session key on its own. In addition, users have the option to create an API and session keys by simply calling the SDK functions
