Welcome to BlockDAG Dashboard! 👋


Dev Release 67

July 4, 2024

Hey Greetings BlockDAG Community,

Today was a planning day where we have planned on how do we proceed further. Let me update the next plan that we'll start working on while we still wait for the reply from Apple store and Google play.
As part of our continuous efforts to enhance user experience and accessibility, we are planning to extend our user base by making the application available on additional platforms such as the Samsung Galaxy Store and Amazon Fire Store.

Benefits of Extending the User Base:

  1. Increased Accessibility: By uploading the BlockDAG X1 Application on these platforms, we will make it easier for users to access our application, regardless of their preferred device or operating system. This will help us reach a wider audience and provide more users with the benefits of our innovative solutions.
  2. Enhanced User Experience: More platform availability means users can enjoy a seamless experience on their preferred devices. This flexibility is crucial in today's diverse tech landscape, ensuring that our application is accessible to as many users as possible.
  3. Greater Community Engagement: Expanding our user base will lead to a larger community of users. This increased engagement will foster more feedback, ideas, and collaborations, driving continuous improvement and innovation for the BlockDAG X1 Application.
  4. Boosted Adoption Rates: Being present on more platforms will naturally lead to higher adoption rates. As more users discover and utilize our application, the BlockDAG ecosystem will grow, benefiting from network effects and increased participation.
  5. Market Penetration: With availability on the Samsung Galaxy Store and Amazon Fire Store, we will penetrate markets that we have not yet fully tapped into, enhancing our presence and influence in the blockchain and web3 community.

What's Next?
Our team is diligently working on the necessary adjustments and optimizations to ensure that the BlockDAG X1 Application meets the standards and requirements of these new platforms. Stay tuned for further updates as we move closer to the official release on the Samsung Galaxy Store and Amazon Fire Store.

BlockDAG Blockchain Explorer: Infrastructure Deployment Complete, Moving to Testing Phase

Here's the update on the blockchain side. The deployment of the infrastructure for our BlockDAG Blockchain Explorer is now complete, and the Terraform setup has been fully implemented. With these critical steps behind us, we are now ready to move into the testing phase on our server.
Testing is a vital part of our development process to ensure the stability, performance, and reliability of the BlockDAG Blockchain Explorer. We will be employing a variety of testing techniques to thoroughly evaluate and validate our system. Here are the key testing methodologies we will be using:

Regression Testing
Objective: Ensure that new changes have not adversely affected existing functionality.

  • Test Suites: We will run comprehensive test suites that cover all existing features of the blockchain explorer.
  • Automation: Automated scripts will be utilized to execute regression tests efficiently and consistently.
  • Verification: Any bugs or issues detected will be documented, and necessary code changes will be implemented to resolve them. The tests will then be re-run to verify the fixes.

Unit Testing
Objective: Validate individual components and functions of the blockchain explorer.

  • Component Isolation: Each component or function will be tested in isolation to ensure it performs as expected.
  • Mock Data: We will use mock data to simulate different scenarios and inputs.
  • Assertions: Assertions will be made to verify that the output of each unit matches the expected results.
  • Continuous Integration: Unit tests will be integrated into our continuous integration pipeline to automatically run whenever code changes are made.

Load Testing
Objective: Assess the system's performance under heavy load conditions and identify performance bottlenecks.

  • Simulated Traffic: We will simulate high volumes of traffic to the blockchain explorer to mimic real-world usage patterns.
  • Performance Metrics: Key performance metrics such as response time, throughput, and resource utilization will be monitored and recorded.
  • Rate Limiting: We will test the system's rate limiting functionality to ensure it can handle high volumes of requests without degradation in performance.
  • Stress Testing: Beyond regular load testing, we will perform stress testing to push the system to its limits and observe how it handles extreme conditions.
  • Scalability: We will evaluate the system's ability to scale and handle increasing loads over time.

Next Steps
Following the completion of these testing phases, we will analyze the results and make any necessary optimizations to the BlockDAG Blockchain Explorer. Our goal is to deliver a robust, high-performance, and reliable tool for our users.
