Stage 3 Developments
Stage 3 development is delayed by two to three weeks. As development progressed, it was necessary to make a few major upgrades as part of this stage:
- Circuit update to enhance the security of the overall protocol.
- UI Redesign was initiated as part of Stage 3, which means completely changing the design for the dApp for all previous stages as well.
The smart contracts needed for Stage 3 are ready and are being integrated and tested with the dApp. This includes the Vault smart contract and the ability to interact with Stealth addresses within Panther.
The UI for Stage 3 is completed, and currently, the dApp is being integrated and finalized for tests.
When will the team announce Stage 3 and Stage 4 of the testnet?
The team aims to release both stage 3 and stage 4 of the testnet this month.
