December 13, 2019, Weekly Update

It's Friday the 13th, but we're feeling lucky here at Divi.


Testnet 2.0 Atomic Swaps Imminent


Over the past few months, we have been designing and building the easiest, production-ready version of Atomic Swap technology the industry has seen thus far.

What makes Divi's Atomic Swaps different

Divi's Atomic Swap implementation is a granular API that allows developers and users to have full control over the transaction process via CLI or gRPC. This factor is a critical difference between what we have built and what is currently available today.

To ensure a better developer (and user) experience, we digest the entire process into a simplified REST API server.

This REST API enables us to create a user-friendly "light client" interface for users to quickly and easily swap between DIVI and BTC (and later, many other coins) in a decentralized and peer-to-peer manner.

For those looking for even more control and decentralization, they can manage and maintain their servers and daemons individually.

Getting started

Developers can begin utilizing Divi Atomic Swaps now on the Bitcoin and Divi 2.0 Testnets. To get started, follow this link and start reading through the documentation. We're even providing a succinct and easy-to-follow guide for deploying your own Bitcoin network.

Ready to test? Developers can get some free Test Divi using our faucet now.

Next steps

In the coming weeks, light client nodes will be running, allowing developers who want a more hands-off experience to begin building.

Additionally, a block explorer that illustrates the comings and goings of funds before, during, and after Atomic Swaps take place will be available.

Masternode performance

Divi appears twice this week in reports on masternode performance.
