Stage 3 Developments

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


We’ve updated Stage 1 and Stage 2 circuits following general updates and have delivered the Balance checker unit test. 

Panther Core dApp UI is dependent on the smart contract interactions and the circuits designed for these interactions. The design of these circuits is planned in stages to cover basic scenarios first and then move to more complex handling of input parameters.  


We’ve successfully completed all unit tests. We expect to complete integration testing by this week. The Vault V1 contract was delivered earlier and is in review now. 


We've made significant progress on our dApp this week. Key achievements include the implementation of transaction tracking in the Wallet Engine and the development of a service function for Stealth Executor Address Calculation. Additionally, we have updated the PRP convert function signature and added zAsset encryption for message type 08. Our team is also on track to complete updates for Stages 1 and 2 by December 1st, enhancing our dApp's functionality and user experience.

UI/UX Design

On the UI/UX front, we have built a new History page to improve activity tracking. We've further approved and merged an enhanced visual layer for the deposit flow and implemented a logic to preset assets for deposit from the dashboard. The Split functionality for the zZKP special deposit flow has been completed, alongside the addition of new UI components and a Token select dialog. The zAsset page has also received significant updates, further refining the user experience.
