Arweave Ecosystem Weekly Report #17: “Declaring WAR on Uniswap” Edition

0 814

The Arweave ecosystem is building more utility for dApps and the AR token every week. The recent launch of a WAR/ETH liquidity mining pool on Uniswap brings the whole Ethereum ecosystem within reach of the AR token, and offers a way to passively earn from holding AR. The new BitKeep mobile wallet brings every Arweave dApp cross-platform.

These building blocks bring new utility for Arweave users, just as the ecosystem blossoms with new projects, integrations and use cases. In this report, we take a look at everything that’s happening on the permaweb, and how it’s forming bonds outside of its usual realm.

everFinance publishes a design document for an Arweave seeding server

everFinance is developing a sort of layer 2 on top of existing Arweave gateways to solve some reported long-standing problems with the main arweave.net gateway. According to everFinance, arweave.net “accumulates a large number of txs, but the other outgoing nodes do not have transactions to pack”.

This seeding server is their proposed solution. It will be designed to broadcast pending and seeded transactions across more nodes, and the team says it will be particularly useful on a per-application basis. For example, Mirror could run their own seeding server to package transactions faster and store everything sent to Arweave as a way of being able to re-sign and re-send failed transactions.
