Stage 4 developments
Stage 4 of testnet allows users to send zAssets inside the pool from one zAccount to another. It is under review and testing. Stage 4 is a feature-filled release as it is being shipped together with an interesting, related feature originally from Stage 6: Withdrawals. Within the Stage 4 dApp, users can undertake UTXO selection.
On transfer, withdrawal, and other actions that involve zAsset, users will now have the ability to select the UTXOs that they want to interact with. A UTXO, or “unspent transaction”, is the ledger entry that results from a Panther transaction.

Stage 5 developments
Stage 5 development is underway in parallel, thanks to the team’s efforts over the last two months. Stage 5 includes using a 3rd party Bundler service and the ability to submit gasless transactions using an Account Abstraction Paymaster contract.
The Bundler: transaction flow is being tested, and the team is finalizing the charge model. This code update is expected to happen in the current week, and end-to-end testing is planned for the next.
Panther Protocol is a cross-protocol layer that uses zero-knowledge technology to build DeFi solutions that aim to meet ever-evolving regulatory standards while satisfying users' on-chain data privacy needs. Panther's goal is to enable seamless access to DeFi via a cross-chain-supported ZK compliance protocol. The Panther Protocol offers confidentiality across transactions in shielded pools; zSwap for DeFi integrations — enabling private swaps on third-party DEXs; and zTrade for internal OTC book for trading assets privately. Furthermore, Panther Protocol's zero-knowledge primitives are generalizable to KYC, selective disclosures between trusted parties, private ID, voting, and data verification services.
Stay tuned for more updates, and thank you for your continuous support and belief in our mission.
