Stage 3 Developments

Stage 3 developments are delayed by two weeks due to technical roadblocks. Here’s a deep dive into stage 3 development: 


The main transaction circuit is ready for Stage 3. We’ve also upgraded our circuits to improve overall protocol security. We have further completed the testing for Rewards Extended Circuit and Balance Checker.


The Vault V1 contract has been delivered. Further, the main transaction function of the Pool contract which is the foundation for the stage 3 development has been implemented. We’ve also successfully completed all unit tests. We expect to complete integration testing by this week. 


We made significant progress on our dApp in November. Key achievements include the implementation of transaction tracking in the Wallet Engine and the development of a logic for Know Your Transactions (KYT) attestation for both native tokens and $ZKP tokens on the selected chain.

We have also introduced Commitment Message Encryption to handle sent and received UTXO's commitment hashes, which are critical for rebuilding past transaction history. Our team is further on track to complete updates for Stages 1 and Stage 2 by December 6th, enhancing our dApp's functionality and user experience.

UI/UX DesignThe community should expect a brand new design work to be released as part of Stage 3.

Roadmap for December 

We’re looking to launch Stage 3 and Stage 4 in December. Tech Team is further analyzing other wallet integrations to Panther dApp.
