“Has it been three years? So fast!”“only three years? It has been so long”
Facing the time flies, technicians is also emotional！Three years ago, I joined in NULS team. I clearly remember it was September 4.At that time, four senior programmers formed the underlying R&D team, and only one of them had real blockchain development experience.
With the dream of “making the blockchain easier”, we started from 0, after 9 months of unremitting efforts, we released 11 test versions and successfully launched the mainnet 1.0.
Two months later, we completed the coding and testing of smart contract functions, and updated the main network protocol successfully to support the Java language to write smart contracts.
With the accumulation of mainnet and blockchain knowledge, there have been greatly improved in
the technical level and strength of the entire team. And the team is also growing.
同时为响应NULS全球化发展战略和继续加强NULS技术实力，我们成立了NTC（NULS Technical Community ），规模最大时开发者有来自中国、美国、法国、西班牙、印度、玻利维亚等全球各地数十名成员。
At the same time, in response to the global development strategy and continue to improve the technical strength of NULS, we established the NTC (NULS Technical Community). there are dozens of members from China, the United States, France, Spain, India, Bolivia, etc.
During this period, Together with NTC, the technical team implemented the NULS isomorphic cross-chain protocol, designed the mobile wallet Nabox, and completed the design, development and testing of the cross-chain protocol within the ecosystem.
In 2018, more and more companies and teams have joined the blockchain industry. In order to better serve the new entrants and promote the development and application of the blockchain industry, the concept of ChainFactory products is raised on the main network.
According to the characteristics of the ChainFactory, the technical team designed a new version of the micro-service, multi-programming language, and modular architecture, and NTC was responsible for the development.
In July 2019, NULS2.0 was officially launched, and the code-layer chain-building product ChainBox was released at the same time. NULS 2.0 was launched on the main network in September, and the ChainFactory was launched in November, completing the construction of chain-building infrastructure for enterprises and development. You can build your own blockchain with minimal cost.
Meanwhile，POCM product was launched, giving full play to the characteristics of the POC consensus, and helping the project development through community support nodes.
In order to better develop the NULS community, the technical team designed community governance tools based on the work process of the community, and completed the development and testing after mainnet 2.0 online, and successfully launched, realizing councilor election, initiation community proposal and voting on-chain.
In order to achieve the goal of free exchange of all assets in the white paper, the technical team raised the DEX concept, and began design & development.
After discussion and decision by the community council, the DEX would be connected to the ecosystem project NerveNetwork, and NTC would support the design and development of NerveNetwork.
After nearly a year of hard work, we completed the development, testing work of the Nerve underlying network program, and completed the online work of NerveDEX.
Through the heterogeneous cross-chain of NerveNetwork, the multi-chain interoperability function in the white paper has been completed, and the basic construction work of the infrastructure layer has been realized.
During this period, the NULS technical team has taken advices from the community, continuously optimizing and perfecting the product line, including wallets, explorer, POCM, ChainFactory, community governance, etc., and has many times updats.
The very beginning mind itself is the most accomplished mind of true enlightenment. The NULS technical team will never stop. In the coming time, we will also complete the following plans:
Continuously optimize and maintain all applications to improve the experience of existing applications
Design and develop multi-chain wallets, integrate all ecosystem applications on mobile and web, and solve the problem that each application needs to import accounts.
Optimize Nabox ecosystem wallet for more friendly interface and experience, and more assets supporting.
Nabox wallet integrates NerveDEX
Support more public chain cross-chain protocols through NerveNetwork
Promote hardware wallet docking matters
Design cross-chain multi-asset lending application products
ChainBox consortium chain version involved and development
9、Compatible the virtual machine of Ethereum smart contract
10、Research and practice higher performance blockchain underlying framework
11、Support more ecological applications and promote industry technology solutions
12、Design and develop blockchain cloud platform
13、Other R&D work based on industry development and market demand
Looking back on the three years of struggle full of ideals and passion, the technical team has always been on the way forward.Since many products and applications have not experienced pefectly. In the future, we need to settle down to consolidate products, improve service and product-related documents, and promote application landing.
The industry is still in early stage. Blockchain people have a long way to go, and we will move forward bravely.
