Shyft Dev Deep Dive Monthly - May 2023

Welcome back to Shyft Dev Deep Dive, the go-to source for all recent Shyft-wide features and technical advancements.

After making a series of significant releases earlier this year, May has been a relatively quiet yet equally important month for us. Our Product & Engineering team has been intently focused on two major initiatives:

  • Veriscope Status Checks (aka "Smoke Screen")
  • User Signing for private, unhosted wallets

Without further ado, let's delve into these exciting updates.

As always, email us at [email protected] in case you have any questions or for a demo request.

Veriscope Status Checks 

The launch of Veriscope Status Checks, also known as "Smoke Screen," is a significant step in our progress. This feature offers a detailed insight into the status of a Veriscope Server, making installation and troubleshooting considerably more manageable. 

We have included 24 checks in the initial release with plans to add more in the near future.

To learn more about Veriscope Status Checks, refer to our documentation at https://docs.veriscope.network/docs/latest/support/troubleshooting.html#veriscope-status-checks-smoke-screen

Veriscope Status Checks was introduced in v4.2.0 on 5th June.

User Signing for Private, Unhosted Wallets

As the name suggests, User Signing for private, unhosted wallets is a straightforward yet crucial development. We aim to cover all Bitcoin and Ethereum chains upon initial release, with wallet interfaces such as MetaMask, WalletConnect, Ledger, and Trezor.

The anticipated timeline for this release is the end of June.

What's Next?

Looking to the future, our Product & Engineering team is working on several crucial projects:

  • Smart Contract Fee Upgrade to enable VASPs and Service Providers to set the price of on-chain transactions and profit from the difference from the gas fees
  • Veriscope SaaS solution for testnet. 

Final Note

The Shyft Product & Engineering team continues to demonstrate its commitment to enhancing the user experience by developing multiple projects simultaneously. And we aim to maintain this momentum and continue pushing the boundaries of excellence.

With that, we conclude this update. Don't forget to keep an eye on our Change Log at https://docs.veriscope.network/docs/latest/change-log.html for the latest updates and improvements.
