Product Progress

Swan Chain

  • Launched Swan Chain, an Ethereum layer 2 AI computing blockchain built on OP Stack , to support Universal Basic Income (zk-UBI) and cloud computing services in the Swan ecosystem.
  • Introduced Swan Bridge to achieve cross-chain swap with Sepolia and Swan Chain, allowing users to conduct cross-chain asset transfer.

Orchestrator

  • Launched Orchestrator to connect cloud computing resources with platform demands targeting service providers, providing high-quality computing services based on Swan Chain.
  • Implemented a Collateral mechanism for computing providers (CP), requiring a certain amount of tokens staked to reliable computing services.
  • Redesigned Orchestrator Dashboard for an intuitive interface and robust analytical tools.

zk-UBI

  • Launched UBI-engine to reward providers for contributing computing resources, verified through zero-knowledge proofs.
  • Supported fil-c2 tasks to detect resource online status simultaneously.
  • Continuously monitored proofs submitted by CPs to Swan Chain and distributed rewards based on on-chain proof records.
  • Launched UBI-challenger to monitor the authenticity of on-chain proof data and prevent fraud.
  • Introduced “UBI reward history” on Swan Dashboard where computing providers can view income records.

Computing Provider

  • Enabled providers to integrate with Swan Chain, and support Space deployment on Lagrange.
  • Integrated Orchestrator to open up resource invocation to more Dapps.
  • Supported Orchestrator collateral mechanism where CPs need a certain amount staked when taking tasks.
  • Added computing provider account initialization to submit info to Swan Chain.
  • Supported receiving UBI tasks. CPs can configure receiving fil-c2 zk tasks and submit zk-proofs to the Swan chain. Check the tutorial here.
  • Added UBI task-related commands for task details query.
  • Optimized resource-exporter to be compatible with CPs without GPU.
  • Refined Collateral and Escrow management mechanism to automatically return staked tokens to the Collateral account for new tasks after normal task completion.

Lagrange

  • Lagrange successfully integrated Orchestrator with a brand-new deployment process for a smoother Space deployment experience.
  • Delivered UI/UX improvements for better user-friendliness.
  • Optimized multi-wallet sign-in so users can log in smoothly even with multiple wallets installed concurrently
  • Streamlined renew process to extend spaces without redeployment
  • Added new close function for users to terminate space anytime
  • Improved naming when forking spaces to avoid conflicts with existing names that block forking
  • Refined claim review/refund function
  • Upgraded log display for easier access by users to view space deployment/runtime logs
  • Enhanced space status display by adding more running configuration indicators
  • Optimized visibility into space deployment status/progress by including more granular state updates
  • Improved displaying of currently available deployments per space
  • Expanded Space hardware options to include AI GPU configurations, meeting deployment requirements for AI spaces
