Development Update : 10/29/2021
For now, our main goal is to make NeuroChain more accessible, simplified and easier to understand until the user is confident enough to use it on a daily basis.
To do so, a web site is under construction to help beginners understand the main steps in blockchains protocols and to become familiar with common terms. More pages will be available to describe NeuroChain features: what makes it different from others, what are the advantages and disadvantages and how it could be applied etc.
Moreover, a sandbox environment has been created by the development team. Virtual machines are linked to each other in the same network. They all have access to NeuroChain, they can send transactions, forge blocks and consult the database etc. As the blockchain evolves, command lines are available to check on its healthiness, but they are not really user friendly.
Therefore, from this new the web interface, admins can easily monitor the network and the blockchain. They can list connected machines in the same network and obtain technical data like IP addresses or public keys used for transactions. Now, they are able to identify which bot is online and which one is not available. From these listed bots, a user can select which bot he wants to interrogate and visualize the response in real time. NeuroChain wants to offer the ability to visualize pertinent KPI in one click.
To follow test-driven development philosophy, the sandbox needs to be active, hosts must send transactions continuously to emulate a working network. It helps to detect strange behavior if there is one, patching it and testing new features. At the same time, technical documents are updated so anyone can be clear on all cryptographic steps.
Interoperability is Neurochains’ keyword, so anyone should be able to easily see what’s going in their blockchain in live.
