TRON-based TronWatchMarket Updates Community About Advancements
TRON-based TronWatchMarket’s team wasted no time after reaching the soft cap as per the updates provided by them.
According to their Medium blog containing the updates about the last 12 days:
“As planned, we started development of TronWatch Market the day after reaching softcap. This article is a short update of what we’ve been up to in the last 12 days, and the plans for the next couple of weeks.
The first few days were spent on designing the architecture and individual components of our exchange. The following days were spent implementing basic versions for each of them.”
The blog then talks about the advancements one at a time.
This is what the team had to say about the updates in Smart Contracts:
“The most important aspect of the exchange; smart contracts manage users’ funds and facilitate trading. We are aiming to implement the smart contracts as early as possible so to allow adequate time for testing, reviews, and a code audit. The contracts for trading TRX20 tokens have been implemented, and are feature complete.
Next steps include thorough testing and optimizing energy usage to ensure interacting with the exchange is as cheap as possible, without sacrificing security. Additionally we need to add support for TXR10 tokens including the ability to purchase a discount on trading fees with TronWatchMarket tokens, support TRX20 base pairs, and create the Listing Manager and DAO contracts.”
Moving on to the web interface, this is what the blog said:
“To help provide our users with a positive and reliable user experience, we have a big focus on the web interface of the DEX. We have taken influence from many of the most popular exchanges on the web and have been working on improving our design to meet both community needs and functionality.
Like with our other projects we’ve decided to use React to build the frontend. React allows us to efficiently produce the frontend while keeping a maintainable codebase. It’s important that we have proper data flows and maintain concise development patterns so that the community are able to build on the frontend. TronWatch Market uses its own bootstrapping system to build the application on the first run, also loading in the appropriate localisation data and token information.”
Adding to that, the blog said:
“We decided to take a modular approach with styling so SCSS with partials was a perfect fit. To keep it easily maintainable and structured, SCSS provided great features such as nesting and mixins to assist us in doing so. Instead of scrolling through a ton of inheritance and long css selectors, it takes a more DOM based approach which mirrors the JSX very well, making it a breeze to visually parse and update where needed. We compile it all down to vanilla css after, so the variables we use do not need to be polyfilled. When we do need to polyfill, mixins help keep the SCSS file clean and uncluttered.
As with many other TRON DApps, we’re using TronLink for wallet management. TronLink is a chrome extension that allows you to manage your TRX and tokens, whilst also offering websites the ability to interact with the blockchain. This lets users trigger smart contract calls with the click of a button. You can find out more information about TronLink here.”
Here’s the update on the backend:
“The backend of our exchange is there to offer a fast api for the information that is off-chain, and events that can’t be queried efficiently using TRON nodes. We have split it into three main components. During the last week we developed early versions for all of them, that are now ready for integration with the frontend.”
