July Community Update

Roadmap Progress:

We are very pleased today to announce that the R&D team has been working exceptionally hard, not only fulfilling all tasks set out in the roadmap for Q2 but also actively working on elements of the Q3 and Q4 milestone targets.

Over the last 3 months there have been 3 main areas of focus:

1. Impressively, along with the Q2 milestones the R&D team have brought forward work on the contract upgrade to support multiple chains and the multi chain token exchange feature. E.G ERC20-SS [current] to TRC20-SS.
The R&D team has also brought forward the Q4 milestone of adding the Huobi - HECO-SS token exchange function support.
Going forward the Binance Smart Chain BSC-SS exchange function is planned for Q4 and future chain/exchange functions will be voted on through the Sharder Community Forum and implemented.

*Why is the multi chain contract upgrade important?
- Cheaper access to Sharder tokens, greater avenues of access to Sharder tokens, along with maximising the ability to access newer and more advanced chains/networks as they are built. Basically future proofing the Sharder Chain/Network.
- This will help us attract new investors as the cost of ETH GAS has been prohibitive for smaller investors.
- It will enable easier access to an infinitely broader market for the use cases Sharder and the Dapps built on the Sharder Network will provide.
-The contract upgrade DOES NOT change the circulating supply, there is no dilution of tokens. It simply provides greater ability to buy Sharder tokens via Tron, Huobi, Binance Smart Chain [Q4] and any newer and more advanced chains/networks into the future as explained above.
***The R&D team has 90% of this work completed.

2. A lot of work has been done on the Sharder Mining Client Software.
Getting ready for our Test Network Reset and allowing the ability to mine along with testing staking rewards and more.

3. Finally, whilst Telegram/Twitter are great community channels - we have been working hard on a community forum that will be accessed via the official sharder.org website to allow direct engagement, quicker access to important announcements, information and access to updates/documentation. E.G for staking and mining client implementation.
We are finalising testing and planning release in August!

- Stay tuned as there are some very exciting developments that are being finalised and will be announced in due course via our social channels and community forum!

August/September community update


Community Update -

We are looking forward to some exciting months ahead!

The team has been working tirelessly and the contract upgrade is ahead of schedule. They have brought work on the contract upgrade forward for efficiency of workflow purposes and to be armed and ready to enable multi chain token contracts to new exchanges as they are deployed.

When the contract is upgraded there will be multiple token codes on the contract, which were submitted to GitHub at the end of June, seen here - https://github.com/Sharders/sharder-token - contracts are being prepared and will be ready for deployment as explained above. These functions were originally slotted for Q4.

New exchanges will be added in future via contract upgrades and will largely be decided/voted on by node holders, holders staking tokens and the community via our community forum.

Even though the team is ahead of the roadmap timeline schedule in this department, they envision that testnet reset and testing will still fall within or very close to the roadmap timelines (Q3/Q4)

Tesnet reset, internal testing, contract upgraded to existing exchanges [Uniswap, Hotbit and Bilaxy], deployment of multi chain capability, trading pairs on new exchanges, liquidity rewards and more are scheduled for the rest of Q3, into Q4 and beyond.

-Community Update Q4-

*Testnet -  

Internal testing of the network commenced in late September and is progressing well. The latest version is now under test and fixing bugs.
The team is considering the option at present to merge the planned COSv2.1 functions into COSv2.0 and release them together, with the main upgrade functions for COSv2.1 being to open the clients mining function to ordinary VPS and server nodes. This will enable network growth at an exponentially faster rate, creating a much larger and very competitive storage network.
This is fundamental for broader network stability, the ability to offer more flexibility, broader storage solutions, a thriving DApp building platform, larger storage services and just as importantly, very strong token demand.
The team expects full open testing to commence soon.

All GitHub developments can be followed here - https://github.com/Sharders/sharder-chain/pulls?q=is%3Apr+is%3Aclosed+is%3Aopen

*Contract upgrade / New exchanges -

As soon as the test network is reset the team will heavily focus on deployment of the upgraded contract to new networks.

*There is now an agreement in place with a new exchange and deployment to the TRX network and will be announced following the contract upgrade, with exchanges on the subsequent networks (seen below) to follow. New liquidity reward programs will also be implemented.

We would like to reiterate that the contract upgrade DOES NOT change the circulating supply, there is NO dilution of tokens and your tokens in their current format on the ETH network are SAFE and built into the new contract. It simply provides greater ability to buy Sharder tokens via Tron, Huobi, Binance Smart Chain, OKEx Chain and any newer and more advanced chains/networks with future contract upgrades.

New exchanges will be added in future and will largely be decided/voted on by node holders, and community holders staking tokens to nodes.

As you can see, these steps in the right sequence will help with access to new investors by lowering GAS type fees and increasing liquidity.

*Business Development -

The team has also been working closely in the early stages of two new projects, one looking to create an international crypto financial services platform that integrates crypto and traditional institutions with the possibility of using Sharder Chain technology to run a public chain and integrate the Sharder SS token.

The other is a custodial wallet SaaS service which will support Sharder SS token custody.
Partial integration of the code is currently being carried out to determine compatibility with positive results thus far.

Any further detail and developments will be provided in future updates.

——————————

*Sharder Distributed Network is striving to build a package of unmatched end to end, extremely secure, easily accessible storage solutions along with validation and authentication services for critical files and documents of any size. Built for the individual, the smallest businesses to the largest of corporations alike.
Along with the dedicated platform for developers to build unique DApp’s on the network, Sharder Distributed Network will soon open its unique cross chain asset function allowing any user on the network to issue and trade assets like NFT’s and much more on the Sharder Chain and will also be integrated within the current mainstream DEFI ecosystem.
Community Update - November/December

Test Network Reset


As announced in the previous update, the team were considering the option to merge the planned COSv2.1 functions into COSv2.0 and release them together, with the main upgrade functions for COSv2.1 being to open the clients mining function to ordinary VPS and server nodes to enable network growth at an exponentially faster rate, creating a much larger, competitive storage network, broader network security and stability, broader offerings and very strong token demand.

*An incredible amount of work has been done (on many fronts) by the team and all involved, amazingly bringing the above to fruition!
The fully merged COSv2.0/v2.1 beta is currently being internally tested by Rudi on VPS servers with very promising results thus far.
We are also currently in the process of testing on a broader range of linux operating systems.

Hub upgrade internal testing is also imminent.

User Guides, Forms and Processes

In unison with the above we are currently writing user guides with an aim to ensure clear, simple implementation to the end user.
We are also setting up miner registration forms and mining processes.

Open Network Testing

Once the team are comfortable with the above processes we will invite a number of community members to help with final testing.

Contract Upgrade and Deployment

Contract upgrade is due soon. Firstly, we will deploy the contract and test the bridge [SS > ETH/SS > TRC/SS etc].

An agreement is in place with a new exchange and deployment to the TRX network will be announced following the contract upgrade.

The team were initially pushing ahead of schedule, however the merging of functions with COSv2.0/2.1 and extra workload required was seen to be paramount for more immediate and sustainable token appreciation, growth and node uptake.
These steps, importantly in the right sequence will help with access to new investors by lowering GAS type fees and increasing liquidity.

Even though we are a little behind it is really exciting to be testing the network with very good results thus far!

December 21 Update

COSv2.0


We are making great progress with the release of the merged COS 2.0/2.1 with bugs repaired and new versions constantly being updated internally. All fixes during testing have been successful thus far and we are very close. We have decided to hold the release until bugs are fixed internally. Introducing bugs into a blockchain project is unprofessional and would not build confidence.

Merging of the COS versions and the time required has been well worth it. Bringing forward the ability to mine with VPS allowing the network to scale at a much faster rate.

*For those wanting to run nodes via VPS the spec requirements will be as follows -

-Requirements for optimum performance and uptime-

CPU: 4+ core CPU
Memory: 8GB+
Disk: 500GB+
Bandwidth: 10m+ / 100Mbps+
IP: Public IP

-Minimum requirements- (Performance and uptime may not be optimal)

CPU: 2 core CPU
Memory: 4GB
Disk: 100GB
Bandwidth: 1m / 10Mbps
IP: Public IP

Test Network Reset

We have successfully reset the testnet and have been internally testing mining via VPS and various linux operating systems.
Internal hub testing has also commenced. Mining testing plus the possibility of automatic updates to hubs is also being implemented as part of hub testing.

While we are a little behind on releases due to enhanced upgrades/functionality excellent progress is being made. We are very close!


Contract Upgrade

Planning and implementation has begun on the contract upgrade with some new developments we are excited to announce in due course to the community that will give us access via other chains [i.e BSC]
We know that ETH/GAS fees etc. make it hard for small or new investors and token appreciation. These factors are/will all be addressed, importantly in the right sequence.

We wish the community a happy and safe festive season!
Sharder Team
-February 22 Community Update-

*Contract upgrade / New exchanges -

The team have decided to move their immediate focus (post Spring Festival holiday - 15th Feb), to contract upgrade and completing the deployment of new contracts to the BSC and TRC chains. Closely followed by opening trading pairs on the corresponding swap DEX. They are planning to commence deployment of the above from early next month, followed by liquidity reward programs.

More information regarding the exchanges and deployment will be released as they are actioned.


*Testnet -
  The test network has been reset. Testnet is nearing completion.
*Due to the change in immediate focus and great progress being achieved in testing the team will continue with testing and finalising internally.
(Spec requirements for VPS nodes are listed in the earlier December 21 community update)

*Business Development -

In the Q4 community update the team provided information on collaborations with some early stage projects with the potential of using Sharder Chain technology. The collaborations have been a success thus far with the teams moving to the next stage of works.

The team have been working diligently with these projects and are excited to provide the following update -

Firstly, ongoing testing with Sharder Chain technology, integration of the code and Sharder SS token custody has been successful to date for a combined testing phase effort with a new and exciting exchange and wallet service due for release within the first half of 2022.

The new exchange plans to be a CEX and DEX multi chain aggregator, aggregating swaps from verified exchanges, bringing together trade options from centralised and decentralised exchanges across the globe under a simple, easy to use single interface.

They will also provide spot trading and liquidity management options for projects, including the smaller promising projects that need it most.

The associated wallet service plans to allow encrypted asset holdings. Users will be able to participate in token purchases and transactions of NFT’s, DEFI and future DEX opportunities.

Headquartered in Hong Kong, the exchange plans to also set up offices in the US and Singapore.

*Due to the collaboration and testing with Sharder Chain technology and code integration. Sharder will also be listed on the exchange and get the full service offering as stated above.
This will greatly enhance Sharder in every way. From liquidity and token activity, node count growth to project awareness, DApp onboarding opportunities and more.

The community will be kept up to date as more information comes to hand.

-March 2022 Community Update-

-Testnet-

-Testnet is reset and readying for exisiting Hub and VPS node deployment. Final details on user guides are being done and will be made available when mining commences.
The team has focused on the multi chain contract upgrade, new Dex listings and associated liquidity reward programs as per the community’s feedback, so this has slightly pushed back commencement of mining.
Further details will be provided in future updates.

-Contract Upgrade-

- Huge milestone of multi chain contract upgrade imminent, new DEX’s and liquidity reward planning is in full motion!

*Our first cross chain token is on Binance Chain (BSC) with a DEX listing on PancakeSwap.

- PancakeSwap BNB-SS trading pair and the corresponding contract address details are being finalised and will be provided in another update soon.

◦ Tokens issued to BSC 35,871,297 [equivalent burnt on ETH network] *NOTE - there will always be zero dilution of circulating supply.
◦ Allocated mining reward pool 15,225,600 - First year liquidity reward pool of 4,992,000 (416,000 SS per month)
◦ Standard PancakeSwap trading fee rewards are added to the liquidity pool.
◦ Team has added just short of 2 million SS and over 10 BNB to PancakeSwap liquidity pool.


- Liquidity Rewards program on PancakeSwap:

◦ Earn up to 24% APR - 2% per month reward for liquidity provided on PancakeSwap. Not locked. Liquidity pulled before end of calendar month will not receive rewards for that month.
◦ Total month reward capped at 416,000 SS per month, if pool exceeds rewards available the total rewards pool is shared proportionately.
◦ Rewards paid in SS tokens monthly, manually by the project team.
◦ More detail provided in due course.
◦ Upon smooth BSC functionality the team will move onto deployment, listing and liquidity rewards on more chains.

- Cross Chain Swap Function-
- The R&D team are working on a cross chain bridge that will function similarly to PancakeSwap and Changelly. However, to speed things up they will temporarily transform the AirDrop function on the existing sharder.org official website as a cross-chain exchange function for convenience. We will share how to do this when it is actioned in a future update.

Sharder Team BSC/PancakeSwap Announcement Update

We have been working hard to deliver the next phase of the Sharder project. Today we are happy to announce the release of the Sharder Token on the Binance Chain:

SS-BEP20 Token address: https://www.bscscan.com/token/0xeDd35DBa60F2489cD77DCbC570BC4C5028C38027

To support the trading of SS-BEP20 token we have setup the token on PancakeSwap and provided some liquidity to support trading:

https://pancakeswap.finance/info/pool/0x1b83a7fd4bdad48cb2a841de718e51d37b5ef746

Pancake Swap Listing: https://pancakeswap.finance/info/token/0xedd35dba60f2489cd77dcbc570bc4c5028c38027

We know some people would prefer to trade on the BSC as the fees are lower than the ETH network - with that in mind we have created the ability to swap your ERC based tokens over our bridge.

Please see this article on our community for instructions on how to convert your ERC-20 tokens to BEP-20 tokens:  https://community.sharder.org/topic/14/00-eth-to-bsc-token-swap

Please note the bridge is 1 way - ERC > BEP

We look forward to announcing our new liquidity rewards program for pool holders on the PancakeSwap DEX in the near future.

Sharder July 2022 update

The team has been working hard internally on the Sharder network in readiness to build as strong and distributed storage network as possible. The network will very soon be ready to deploy nodes and start this important growth phase.
They are working on the implementation of a very attractive rewards program that will enable the network to grow at an exponentially faster rate, creating a much larger and very competitive storage and platform.
This is fundamental for broader network stability, the ability to offer more flexibility, broader storage solutions, a thriving D’App building platform, larger storage services and just as importantly, very strong token demand.

VPS and Hub nodes requirements

-Requirements for optimum performance and uptime-

CPU: 4+ core CPU
Memory: 8GB+
Disk: 500GB+
Bandwidth: 10m+ / 100Mbps+
IP: Public IP

-Minimum requirements- (Performance and uptime may not be optimal)

CPU: 2 core CPU
Memory: 4GB
Disk: 100GB
Bandwidth: 1m / 10Mbps
IP: Public IP



Liquidity Rewards program on PancakeSwap

◦ Earn up to 24% APR - 2% per month reward for liquidity provided on PancakeSwap. Not locked. Liquidity pulled before end of calendar month will not receive rewards for that month.

◦ Rewards paid in SS tokens monthly, manually by the project team.
◦ More detail provided in due course.
◦ Upon smooth BSC functionality the team will move onto deployment, listing and liquidity rewards on more chains.


Exchange Listings

The team is also wanting to work on more listings on ETH based exchanges and is aware of the importance to maintain, increase listings and trading volumes on ETH based exchanges.
Further listings on new chains will be decided by the community also, with the team very open to suggestions and recommendations.


Q3/Q4 Core Focus

Going forward the teams immediate core focus is to build on the simultaneous growth of very attractive rewards via exchange liquidity programs, node deployment, storage rewards programs and project awareness.

As stated earlier, the team will be offering very attractive rewards for new node holders as they see this as fundamental to token liquidity/volumes, project awareness and broader network stability, the ability to offer more flexibility, broader storage solutions.

The team are wanting to bring this all together as soon as practicable to enable the marketing of the platform, initially to lite storage D’App builders and as the storage network grows and becomes more distributed to offer larger storage solutions.
The team is open to the potential of offering D’App building services to prospective clients to make integration to the platform more seamless and successful.

Admin/Moderation/Marcomms Changes

As of 31/07/22 due to changes in personal and business commitments both Rudi and Rob will no longer be admins/comms.
This has been in process with the team for some time and actions are currently being undertaken to bring fresh blood into community management and marketing in the next important phase of the project.
Both Rudi and Rob strongly believe in the future prospects of the project and continue to hold all tokens.

For those wanting to be a part of the next phase of the projects comms, marketing, TG admin/moderation etc.
