Gimbl Monthly Update: GMU #2

We’re now almost halfway through September and we’ve been working relentlessly on our tech. If you’ve been with us since the beginning, you’ve been seeing a lot of changes lately, and it’s only the beginning.

We’re thrilled about our new Front-end team member. As a hardcore Web Components fan, he’ll bring a refreshing sane blunt javascript approach to our React block. He’s started a week ago and is already speeding up the development in great ways.
Backend APIs now have all the functionalities necessary for betting to work safely in a “centralized environment”. It’s been designed with all the best practices in mind, especially when coming to HTTP safety.

Our goal is to build an app that’s easy to use both for the blockchain-savvy and the computer-illiterate. To that end, having a full-fledged internal database mimicking and synchronized on the blockchain is necessary. In addition, we are looking into the possibility of providing internal accounts to which we hold the private keys, to provide a seamless experience for those who want to. Others will always have the option to inject or plug their wallets and sign their own transactions.

On the transaction broadcast side, we’re currently designing a versatile daemon that will make interacting with the blockchain a breeze, even with many transactions and a busy network. We highly recommend you use it to broadcast your own transactions (and it’s how we are building the UI), in order to have a smoother user experience. That being said, and for the sake of decentralization, you will always be able to do it yourself.

For those who choose to trust us with their private keys, we’re focusing on a state of the art safe that will take advantage of a multi-datacenter multisig secure elements. Our encryption mechanisms will be written in Rust for even more security.
Smart Contracts have been improved to secure bet creation with respect to concurrency and re-entry. Lots of solidity improvements are in the pipe, up until the Devcon 4 in Prague. We’re including a KYC functionality in our Smart Contracts that we’d like to use in conjunction with intelligence providers to guarantee the safety of our users.

We’ve migrated to using ElasticSearch for our initial logging architecture, to take advantage of the fast indexing and grouping features that will allow us to study and test data-based evolutions we need.

Stay tuned!
