Cronos Gravity Bridge testnet “Pioneer 11” launched in June this year, bringing the decentralized Gravity bridge that connects the Cronos “Pioneer 11” testnet to the Ethereum Goerli testnet for asset transfers. Through the first upgrade of the Cronos Gravity Bridge testnet “Pioneer 11” two months ago, further enhancements were made to the Cronos <> Ethereum bridge, including the implementation of the bidirectional tokens transfers and optimization of the gravity module.
With the team’s efforts, we have just released binary v0.8.0-gravity-alpha2 and are ready to propose the next upgrade to Pioneer 11 testnet on October 26!
What’s Included in This Upgrade:
This version contains the new gorc binary with some new features. One major update is that it allows multiple attestations to be processed within a block so that the speed of the bridge further increases. In addition, the storage can now be optimized by simplifying the storage structure. We have also strengthened the security of the bridge by changing the block delay after Ethereum merged and adding more safeguards. It also includes some performance improvement on the orchestrator.
What to Expect:
The target time and date of the Pioneer 11 testnet network upgrade is 2 PM HKT, October 26.
To fully prepare for the upgrade work, Pioneer 11 Testnet transfers on the gravity bridge web app have been paused since October 20. Pioneer 11 Testnet transfers will resume once the network upgrade is complete. The bridge web app will remain fully functional with respect to Cronos mainnet transfers.
