#9: New light node UI & derivatives explorer

Covering April 29 - May 6


  • A couple of months ago, Eric Arsenault started a DAC to crowdfund a new design of the Amoveo light node. You can read more about it here. This contract should be closing some time this week, and Eric has already delivered the new UX. Check it out here.

  • The re-designed light node is currently in testing, all transactions on the mainnet have been successful. Note that the new designs are not 100% mobile responsive, it is better to use it on desktop. The UX is open source and is available here. Contact Eric on Twitter or Telegram to test the UX or provide feedback.

  • Exan.tech’s light node was updated with Eric’s UX. See it here.

  • Zack Hess created a website where users can post p2p derivative channel offers. The website is capable of organising them by oracle or price and removing them as they become invalid. Check it out here. See the GitHub repository here.


  • Zack Hess wrote a library to compress and decompress pubkeys, it makes them about 1/2 as big. See it here.

  • Zack Hess wrote a soft update for new_channel_tx2 so that users will be able to make multiple valid channel offers at the same time from the same account. The process of activating this update was not yet started. See it here.

  • There are 12 open issues in the Amoveo depo.

  • There were 41 commits created in 6 repositories.


  • Zack Hess wrote a review of Chainlink’s oracle. Read it here.

  • Zack Hess wrote a review of DXDY. Read it here.
