    Metaverse Full Node Wallet MVSD 0.7.2 release notes

    The Metaverse full node wallet 0.7.2 version is available on linux and windows, please go to our official website to download. The change from V0.7.1 to V0.7.2 is likely to have the greatest impact on miners. Metaverse fixed some areas in the code to address the high orphan rate faced by some mining pools recently. More details on the changes and new features:

    Back-end

    1. Added an offline transaction signing function. This function is unavailable through the MVSD GUI; It is only available for createrawtx/ signrawtx/ decoderawtx/ sendrawtx RPC calls.
    2. Accounts are no longer created when users input incorrect mnemonic words.
    3. Network performance optimization.
    4. Users are no longer given a time estimate when using the freezing function. Instead, the period required to unlock one’s deposit is displayed in blocks.
    5. Optimized performance of the getnewaddress RPC call. Irrelevant to the MVSD GUI.
    6. Added “locked_height_range” fields during transaction output of RPC calls to distinguish freezing transactions.
    7. Fixed peer connection problem in the configuration file.
    8. Display transaction message on homepage.

    Front-end

    1. Users must now type in their backup words (mnemonic passphrase) upon registration to confirm that they have made a backup.

    2. Fixed WebSocket in the “advanced” function on the Internet Explorer browser.

    3. Optimized the UI.

    November Roundup

    November has passed in a flash, and Christmas is now almost upon us. It has been a bumpy ride for the entire cryptocurrency and blockchain community, due in no small part to the uncertainty surrounding Bitcoin and 2X. Regardless, the Metaverse team has continued to invest a good amount of time overseas this month interacting with other firms in the fintech and blockchain space and has gained invaluable insights along the way. We are extremely encouraged by the raw vitality of the industry, and it spurs us to forge ahead.

    This month, research and development efforts for the Metaverse blockchain have been focused on digital identity implementation. A number of complex hurdles have to be considered, including the question of interoperability, zero-knowledge proofs and user-friendliness. We are making progress on these fronts and should be able to release more details soon.

    Metaverse has also been active in the community at some of Shanghai’s most well-recognized universities, participating in their annual job fairs as well as events organized by Fudan University’s Blockchain Association. Again, it’s heartening to see so many students challenging themselves and engaging with new technologies. Lastly, the team is aware of community feedback and is continuously working to liaise with exchanges. The negotiation process may be long and winding, but we are confident that we will have good news to share. Thank you all for your support – in the words of John Heywood, nothing is impossible to a willing heart.

    Till next month,
    The Metaverse Team
