Based on a recent report distributed by the Company:

  • TVM has been fully implemented and tested by the team internally, only minor changes will be necessary during the process of binding TVM with Validation software;
  • TON Network is completed and ready to spread newly generated blocks, only sophisticated options and cryptography options that are not required for the test version will be developed during the test phase;
  • Block Generation and Validation is a current key area of TON team focus:
  • Byzantine Fault Tolerant (BFT) consensus protocol has been completed and tested, showing 2 times less finality time (2.5 secs) from proposed 5 second interval stipulated in the Whitepaper;
  • Validator software consists of the network component (BFT protocol which is already done), of the local block generation and validation components which are halfway complete, and now most development efforts are dedicated to these components;
  • Smart-contract development tools are finished by 20-50%: core functionality of high-level smart-contract language complier is ready, but the system needs additional built-in functions to build fundamental smart contracts which will run new validators election and change configurable parameters.
