The first milestone of the Gafi Network roundup
This article is the milestone roundup and the thanks letter for the Web3 Foundation program
Introduce Gafi Network
The last time I write the article on the Heroes and Empires 2021 roundup, I talk about all the goals we achieved and the struggle we faced when we build Heroes and Empire(H&E). At the end of the tunnel, there is the light that I mention about the new technologies that can help us solve all the problems of H&E and other blockchain games, the Substrate. After that, we put our resources to learn and build Gafi Network.
The decentralized blockchain platform that built for blockchain games and high-frequency applications. Applications running on top of Gafi Network will never bother about the security, transaction fee, malicious accounts, and many other bad factors. They can just focus on gameplay, game experience, or application logic. The Gafi Network supports EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) that projects deploy from Ethereum or Binance Smart Chain to Gafi Network with little or no change.
Please visit Gafi Wiki to learn more about Gafi Network if you are curious about the Network of Game Finance.
Web3 foundation program
Web3 Foundation was founded by Dr. Gavin Wood to fulfill the purpose of funding research and development teams who are building the foundation of the decentralized web. They did great jobs that support the fund the team want and the technical support that all the team need.
In my opinion as a coder, this is the beautiful ecosystem that all developers dream of. From the Parity technologies to Web3 Foundation grants to the ‘no delay helping’ Substrate on StackExchange that help us finish the first milestone less than one month from the original development plan.
We want to say thank you to Dr. Gavin and all the Parity, Web3 Foundation team members.
Milestone 1 roundup and the milestone 2 roadmap
With approx 27k lines of code added and 44k line changes among three developers, we finish the line far than we expected. In the short time of three months to learn Substrate and building the Gafi Network, I got a lot of lessons to deal with the distribution system, modularization, and the power of principle from Substrate, I have no shame to say that this is the best Blockchain ‘tool’ I ever work with.
Gafi Network development milestone 1 has been completed, milestone 1 provides some of the features to the player(end-user) and game-creator(developer) on how Gafi Network solves the barriers of current blockchain game facing that is network security, transaction fees, and the cost of operating.
Our main goals milestone 2(image above) is to give clarity on how Gafi Network controls those ‘generous transaction fees offers’, to free from network attacks and the balancing of the token economy. We add Sponsored Pool to give users more options to customize transaction fees and help game creators appeal to their users, the Game Creator is a distribution transaction fee as an appreciative reward to those who are game creators or developers.
In Q3 and Q4 we try to put the last puzzles to the Network of Game Finance, I bet you are familiar with the words Treasury, DAO, and Staking, which are the parts every layer-one needs to go live. Our final target of this milestone is Kusama parachain to serve the advanced network security from the Kusama relay chain and the philosophy that Gafi Network needs in the early stage of development is ‘Expect Chaos’.
The first grant supported by Web3 Foundation will give Gafi team more motivations and resources to go toward milestone 2, to build a truly decentralized blockchain platform and to the world of Web3.
