RioChain Technical Update H1 2022

RioChain is constantly developing as one of the key components of our ecosystem. In 2022, the upgraded RioChain went through two rounds of source code auditing by Certik, a renowned blockchain security firm, internal testing of its Nodes and Validators Program, as well as the integration of the Frontier pallet to enable EVM code to be run on RioChain. Furthermore, the RioChain block explorer is also getting updated to meet the new chain’s specs.

Independent 3rd Party Audit

Rio has finished two rounds of Audit with Certik, a leading blockchain security company. Certik is currently reviewing our second code submission before we can make final amendments to RioChain’s upgraded mainnet and testnet.

Nodes and Validators Program

In July 2022, the updated RioChain was deployed and is running as an internal Testnet. The updated version follows the Proof of Stake protocol, which currently has five validator nodes running on the Testnet. We are planning to add more validator nodes across the globe soon.

RioChain Block Explorer

The RioChain Block Explorer is going through a total revamp. The new version has enhanced functionality and included more features to reflect the chain’s upgrade to Proof of Stake.

Up until July 2022, we successfully connected the block explorer to the new Testnet and deployed it to a staging environment.

Onboarding EVM Compatible protocols

New RioChain has integrated the Frontier Pallet to enable EVM code to be run. We are planning to test running EVM code on RioChain Testnet in the coming weeks.

What are the next steps for RioChain?
