Release of Test version of Web Bridge

Web Bridge is a web cross-chain tool in Wanchain 5.0 product series. With Web Bridge, users can rapidly convert cross-chain assets between Wanchain and Ethereum based on the decentralized WAN Bridge mechanism.

Web Bridge (for testnet only):

http://34.210.227.55:8000/

We highly recommend you use MetaMask and WanMask together when you use Web Bridge.

WanMask (for testnet only):

https://wanchain.org/download/wanmask-chrome-3.0.0.zip

Note that all the products above are only for the Wanchain 5.0 testnet. Please DO NOT transfer your mainnet WAN coins to those products at present.

Brief Guide of Web Bridge

  1. Open Web Bridge URL

Web Bridge: http://34.210.227.55:8000/

Currently, Web Bridge only supports Chrome.

Click Start after the home page opens.

  1. Select Cross-chain Assets Pair

In the Cross-chain Assets Market, find the cross-chain assets pair that you want to convert. Click Convert to go to the next.

Currently, we only support “Wanchain <-> Ethereum” cross-chain pairs. More cross-chain pairs on other public chains will be added in the future. You can choose a specific pair in the drop-down list on the top-right corner.

  1. Connect Plugin Wallet

a) Connect WanMask

Download WanMask https://wanchain.org/download/wanmask-chrome-3.0.0.zip;
In the Chrome browser, find More tools -> Extensions;
Drag and drop the WanMask zip file to the Extensions page;
Open WanMask, and follow the guide to generate a new WAN address;
Connect your WanMask.

Note that this zip file of WanMask is just a temporary version and only for the testnet. Once the official version of WanMask goes live, you can search and find WanMask in the Chrome Extensions Store.

b) Connect MetaMask

Search and find MetaMask in the Chrome Extensions Store, and Add to Chrome;
Open MetaMask, and follow the guide to generate a new Ethereum address;
Connect your MetaMask.

  1. Cross-chain Transfer Operations

After the two plugin wallets are connected, you can start cross-chain transfer. In the Convert page, you can see the cross-chain assets pair you chose and the cross-chain asset direction, as well as the original and targeted addresses conntected to the wallets.

You can re-select the cross-chain assets pair. You click the Arrow icon to reverse the cross-chain direction;
Choose a proper Storeman Group according to the Quota;
Input the amount of assets that you want to cross-chain transfer, and click Confirm;
Double check your cross-chain transaction information. Click Start or Approve once you confirm. (If it is the first time for you to transfer the asset, you have to make an authorization to the wallet. After the authorization is successful, you can click Start);
In this case, Web Bridge will try to connect your wallet. Either WanMask or MetaMask will pop up and wait for your approval;
After that, the cross-chain transaction will be recorded on chain. You will soon receive your cross-chain assets just waiting for a few minutes;
Check the cross-chain assets transaction status and wallet connection status in the information center at top-right corner.

  1. Check Your Cross-chain Assets

a) You can check your assets of WAN@Ethereum at MetaMask

Open MetaMask, and change the network to Rinkeby Test Network;
Under Assets tab, click Add Token;
Choose Custom Token tab, and input WAN ERC 20 contract address at Token Contract Address;
Click Next, and click Add Tokens;
Go back to Assets, you will find the WAN@Ethereum and its balance.

Test Program Bounties Will Not Be Offered to Node Operators Starting From Storeman Group test_net 008

At present, the Storeman Group test_net 008 has entered the node election period. We still welcome testers to participate in this testing.
Wanchain BlockChain Explorer
Cross Chain Wanchain Ethereum Selecting Time 2020-11-3 02:58 AM - 2020-11-5 02:58 AM (+UTC) Negotiating Time 2020-11-5…testnet.wanscan.org

Note that starting from Storeman Group testnet_008, we will no longer reward 300WAN to those testers who successfully run Storeman nodes. In addition, cheaters of node operators will not receive rewards and the Wanchain Foundation reserves the right to determine if participants have cheated.

Testnet Explorer Fully Displays Selecting Time, Negotiating Time & Working Time

In order to facilitate Storeman node operators to better know the time in different periods, we have added Selecting Time (Storeman candidates election period), Negotiating Time (GPK signature period) and Working Time (Storeman Group Working Period).

Users stake your own Storeman candidate at Selecting Time, set up Storeman node on the server and complete GPK signature at Negotiating Time, and users can make cross-chain transfer at Working Time.

New Test Version (V1.4.0-beta.2) of WanWallet

We updated the test version of WanWallet again based on the requirements and suggestions feedback from the Storeman Testing Program last week, especially optimized the UI of the Storeman page.

V1.4.0-beta.2 download link:

Release 1.4.0-beta.2 · wanchain/wan-wallet-desktop

Two Groups of Storeman Group Currently Are In Selecting Time. Welcome to Join.

The previous Storeman Group testnet_005 will soon switch to Storeman Group testnet_006.

At present, there are two groups of Storeman Group on the testnet are in the election period. You can go to Wanchain testnet explorer to check the selecting time, negotiating time and working time.

Two groups of the Storeman Group are now in the state of competition

Currently, there are two groups of Storeman Group in the state of competition (or so-called election):

The Storeman Group named testnet_005 is the successor group of the previous group testnet_003. In other words, after the group test_003 ends at 8:49 AM UTC on October 16, 2020, the group test_005 will be the right next group. Storeman nodes and delegators in the group test_003 will automatically enter the group test_005 if those nodes and delegators don’t choose to exit. Note: For the new comers who want to participate in the election, please set up well your Storeman node on server before 4:00 AM on October 16, 2020 UTC.

The Storeman Group named Aries_001 is a new group which started election yesterday. Aries_001 will enter the group running state at 4:00 AM on October 18, 2020 UTC.

An Additional Storeman Group For Testing Will Open To The Public

Dear Community:

Thank you everyone for participating in Wanchain 5.0 testing with extremely high enthusiasm. Due to one Storeman Group only allows 21 Storeman nodes to participate, only 15% of the Storeman candidates were selected into the Storeman Group finally, but more than 100 candidates could not join in the group. In order to ensure that all interested node operators get a chance to participate, we have improved our process for distributing test coins. You can check out our new testnet coin faucet here, and read below for more detailed information.

To give more chances to testers, Wanchain team has made a decision to add an additional Storeman Group for the community to test. In order to participate, simply follow the same instructions from our original post on the testing program. Here is the information in detail:

  • Election Time: Oct 14th, 2020, at 4:00am UTC To Oct 16th, 2020, at 4:00am UTC

  • Storeman Nodes Setting up on Server: Oct 16th, 2020, at 4:00am UTC To Oct 18th, 2020, at 4:00am UTC

  • Storeman Group Running Period: 7 days

  • Storeman Amount: 21

  • Bounty Rule: The selected Storeman nodes will be rewarded with 300 WAN; those unseleted Storeman nodes will have a chance of luck draw.

  • WAN Test Coin Application: https://storeman-form.vercel.app/

Achievements of Testing on Wanchain 5.0 Testnet

On October 11th, 2020, the 21 selected Storeman nodes generated GPK (Global Public Key) and formed the Storeman Group with its address 0x000000000000000000000000000000000000000000746573746e65745f303033. The detailed information about the 21 Storeman nodes can be found Wanchain testnet browser.(https://testnet.wanscan.org/osmgroupinfo/0x000000000000000000000000000000000000000000746573746e65745f303033

On WanWallet Desktop (test version), you could find the corresponding Storeman Group, and make cross-chain transactions, such as transfering WAN from Wanchain to Ethereum.
