For the past two weeks our team has been working on current tasks, while designing new features and fixing bugs. We’ve also fixed the resync problem, and the testnet is now functioning normally.

Network Activity Index
Network Activity Index is calculated in the testnet once per week and its amount affects the size and availability of emission. Emission is released only if the Activity Index in the last week was greater than in any other previous week.
In the 8th week of testing, Network Activity Index was 332 069, and as a result, 13598788.17013 ZGV was created.
In the 9th week of testing, Network Activity Index was 356 274, and as a result, 13601071.08228 ZGV was created.
In the last report, we wrote about the sync issues, as well as the update which was intended to solve this problem. After the update everything is functioning as normal, although emission is still being released with a minor delay. We’re working on it. However, in contrast to last fortnight, the Activity Index was big enough, and the emission was distributed amongst the active participants of the testnet according to their Gravity Index.
After the update was released, not all of the participants updated their nodes and returned to the testnet. Now that the problem is fixed, everyone is welcome to the testnet once again.
For the past two weeks our team has been working on applying the Activity Index calculation to social media actions, for example, likes, reposts, follows and so on. We also work on implementing the document circulation system on EOS, and this project is currently in the design phase.
Last fortnight we worked on the most current tasks that we have, and there are some updates in the infrastructure which need to be highlighted.
Firstly, the Korean version of our site was released.
Secondly, we’ve released Stealth Transactions, which were announced in a previous report. You can try this function in your wallet now. If you face any difficulties or bugs, please let us know in our Telegram dev chat.
Thirdly, we started to develop a new version of the wallet, which will include document circulation. This project is in the design stage now, and we’ve also started to develop the front-end and the back-end parts as well.
We’re also going to issue a new tutorial on how to create a bot so that everyone can run a bot and take a part in the “Battle of Bots” when the event is announced in the near future.
Jinse also published an interview with Yury Parsamov, co-founder of Gravity Protocol, where he talks about blockchain technology and the business solutions based on it.
