We will be sharing regular dev updates to keep the Vite community updated on what we're currently working on, and what's in the pipeline for Vite.
Vite Bi-Weekly Report
April 1 - April 15, 2019
Our fan base is growing! We created new community telegram groups for our Japanese, Korean and Arabic fans. Links to these groups are found at the bottom of this article.
We’re looking for more community managers to help bring together other fans that currently do not have a dedicated Vite community. If you speak English and one (or more) of the languages that we do not currently support, submit an application here.
On April 12th, the Vite iOS 2.1.0 wallet officially opened up beta testing to all users. We now support Grin! See proof below.
Since we revealed the details of the ViteX economic model, we received an incredible amount of feedback from the community. We want you guys to be happy with our products, so with your help, we’re revising some of our original rules. On April 11th, we launched a community-wide vote to decide how you guys want the ViteX shared dividend pool to look. We want to hear your thoughts — vote Open form in new tab.
On April 16th, ViteX officially launched its beta version for all users to test. Check it out here and let us know what does and doesn’t work in our bug-reporting campaign!
The Vite Pre-MainNet has completed joint development. Details are as follows:
Development of TestNet to Pre-MainNet data mapping scheme in progress.
Optimized data structure on-chain and account block structure, removed display reference and snapshot hash, decreased complexity of snapshot chain and user chain cross-referencing to reduce fork rate.
Redesigned the quota calculation method.
Contract chain now supports RS block; RS block is a special block combining one response and multiple requests to improve the storage efficiency of the contract chain.
Improved optimization of random number implementation scheme.
Optimized ledger storage scheme. The physical structure has been optimized and random writing has been changed to sequential writing. Multi-level storage improved query cache hit rate.
Optimized ledger synchronization scheme to decouple the logic of downloading and writing in order to achieve asynchronous downloads of the ledger.

Vite’s CMO Luke attended the Innovation Summit at the University of Notre Dame, where he was a speaker in the Blockchain for Government Panel: Socially Meaningful Use Cases and Non-Disruptive Innovation. He presented Vite’s concept of City Coins and partnership with the City of Syracuse and received a lot of positive feedback.
Vite had its first campus outreach event at Berkeley — stay tuned for more to come (it’s free lunch. You can’t say no to free lunch).

next release version must wait until the end of the month.
and there is a temporary gvite to solve this problem.
gvite_hotfix_20190219 is compiled for https://github.com/vitelabs/go-vite/tree/hotfix-20190209-viteshan
Hello! How to allow tcp and udp on 8483 and 8484 ports on Windows 10? I'm not a pro in this area. Can you describe algorithm from step to step (with screenshots)? Because I see now that many full node creators have the same problem.
@crypthusiast0 It depends on how much full nodes there are. Recently it's been ranging anywhere from around 19 to 25 Vite daily. But the rewards for today might be higher, not too sure. Noticed 600-700 full nodes yesterday but only around 5xx today.
