2020 has been a major step forward for Wanchain in realizing the vision initially set out in our whitepaper several years ago. We have successfully launched our decentralized, permissionless, and community controlled cross-chain wanBridges with Wanchain 5.0, and are continuing to iterate and improve our cross-chain technology. Our wanBridges are a major technical achievement, and with them completed, in 2021 we will shift our focus from low-level infrastructure building to ecosystem expansion. In 2021 we will focus on expanding the number of chains connected by our decentralized cross-chain technology, and on fostering the development of applications which benefit from using…

Wanchain’s cross-chain DeFi ecosystem ushered in great development. Cross-chain DeFi projects such as WanSwap and WanLend were born successively and achieved great success. With the continuous development of Wanchain’s cross-chain mechanism and the growth of the Wanchain ecosystem, users from the community will definitely put forward more stringent requirements and more refined demands for decentralized financial services. A group of community-driven projects that keep pace with times, such as the AMM DEX WanSwap, and the Cross-chain Lending Platform WanLend, have emerged at this stage.

In late January this year, WanFarm, a new DeFi project developed by the Wanchain team, will…

FinNexus is seeking superstar leaders from around the world to be in our first group of Global Ambassadors.

We want to begin to formally recognize members of FinNexus’s online community who have stepped up and shown leadership within their own local communities.

To achieve this, FinNexus is launching a Global Ambassador program aimed at bringing technical and non-technical people together on a global scale.

We’re launching this program because:

1. We believe the three most important factors for a successful project in this…

The “Partner-in” model allows for multiple node operators / addresses to jointly operate a node and receive delegations & rewards as a group

0. Preliminary Notes

As a Storeman node operator, you should understand the following:

  • Partner-in is non-custodial, each partner’s fund will always be returned to the original partner when the node exits
  • If the Storeman is dishonest, all partners will be slashed
  • The leader partner receives all network rewards, and distribution happens offline (assumes the joining partners know and trust the leader partner to distribute rewards)
  • A node can have 5 partners at most
  • Each partner must have a minimum of 10,000 WAN

Step by Step Instructions

If you don’t have a Ledger or Trezor hardware wallet, please refer to “Wanchain Offline Wallet Partner In Usage Method” .

The Offline wallet can be used for extra security, and is also required for certain features such as the “partner-in” method of adding stake to POS and Storeman nodes

Support for new 5.0 Features

The v3.0.0 version of the hardware wallet primarily features updates related to the newly added Wanchain 5.0 features such as the new Storeman node and wanBridge systems.

The wallet may be downloaded from the Wanchain.org home page.

The Offline wallet does not need to be connected to the Internet to generate valid signed transactions. The user simply fills in all the transaction parameters and then uses their private key to generate a signed transaction offline. The signed transaction may then be sent through a regular online wallet on another machine. …

The “partner in” function allows multiple addresses to set up a node together. After the first person sets up their node with at least 10,000 WAN, anyone else may contribute stake to that node using the partner in function. Even though partnered in stake is contributed to another person’s node, it is still in control of the person who sent it. It is never in custody of the person who set up the main node address. The staking rewards, however, will all be sent to the main node address, and there is no on chain distribution of rewards. …

The newly updated wallet offers new features to support Storeman node staking and delegating functionality

If you do not already have the newest version of the wallet downloaded and installed, please download the wallet, and follow this guide to install and set it up. Make sure to back up your wallet mnemonic phrase in a safe place (on paper, not any digital format).

Update #1 — Updated Interface to Quickly Show Cross-chain Support

Now that Wanchain 5.0 has officially launched and we have begun transitioning from the old permissioned cross-chain bridges to the new permissionless and decentralized wanBridges, the Wallet UI has been updated to reflect these changes.

The “Cross Chain” section has been updated to make it easier to navigate tokens from different wanBridges

Newly designed cross-chain token interface

You can see here that for each asset, the supported blockchain pair is listed if a wanBridge…

Make sure to set up and register your Storeman node before the selection deadline of November 19th, 11:13am UTC+8

Immediately following the release of the Wanchain 5.0 main net GWAN client on November 11, 2020, the Wanchain Foundation initiated the selection process for the first wanBridge. The first wanBridge will connect the Ethereum and Wanchain blockchains in order to empower bidirectional flow of assets between both chains.

To learn more about how the Storeman node selection process, about how wanBridges work, and other Wanchain 5.0 features, check out our official 5.0 announcement article.

For detailed step-by-step instructions about how to set up and register your node, please see this article.

In order to support Storeman node operators, we have…

All WETH & other wrapped ERC20 tokens on Wanchain will automatically be swapdropped sometime between November 6th and November 10th next week

What is the Wanchain 5.0 Swapdrop?

With the launch of Wanchain 5.0, the Wanchain cross-chain Storeman bridge will change from a permission one managed by the Wanchain foundation to a permissionless one managed by the public. Previously, the Wanchain foundation Storeman nodes issued wrapped Ether as WETH and various wrapped ERC20 tokens as W-Tokens (WETH, WLINK, WMKR, WZXC, WUSDT, WTUSD, WGUSD, WUSDC, WEURS), on Wanchain. With the launch of the new permissionless Wanchain 5.0 Storeman bridges, a new set of wrapped tokens must be issued. Those tokens are known as wanTokens. …
