Mettalex Community Update - October

The latest community update from the Mettalex team!

October update

Hello, Mettalex Community!

Last month has been an exhilarating month for us, packed with developments, enhancements, and growth. As we strive to take Mettalex to greater heights, it is with immense pleasure that we share the strides we’ve taken. Our progress this month spans both technical innovations and valuable community engagements.

Team Expansion

First and foremost, we are thrilled to announce the addition of a new Engineer to our team. His expertise will ensure the quality assurance of our system, enhancing the Mettalex experience for all our users.


Our time at Cosmoverse was a fantastic voyage! We not only learned and engaged with other innovators but also showcased Mettalex's potential. It was an extremely fruitful event that promises exciting prospects for the future.

Smart Contract Advancements

Escrow Evolution

We've enhanced the escrow system to support both full and partial trades with a better funds transfer and execution process. We are rigorously testing it against known breakpoints and integrated robust error handling. Furthermore, we're in the process of adding functions to ensure funds are always in the control of users.

Frontend Enhancement

Streamlined On-boarding

We've improved the onboarding process to make it clearer and faster. It now goes step by step: agent creation, agent mapping, escrow creation and mapping, and then finishes with funds locking.

Transaction Logs & UI Updates

We’ve polished our transaction logs structure and integrated faucets. Our revamped UI is more intuitive.

Agent Optimizations

Queue System

Introduced to maintain agent trade details and ensure consecutive trades are processed efficiently. Robust Agent Handling: If an agent stops and then restarts, our system now checks for pre-existing wallet-agent mappings to ensure uninterrupted ## operations.

Event-Fetcher Library

We’ve integrated our updated event-fetcher library, enhancing event polling capabilities.

Agent Network Refinements

We've optimized agent network dependencies, ensuring smoother and more reliable transactions.

Simplified Order Calculations

We've migrated the complex partial order calculations from the agent's end, simplifying the transfer process by pushing calculations to Middleware.

System Containerization

We’ve tackled and resolved issues related to system containerization, making deployments smoother.

Test Server Deployment

The Mettalex system is now live on our test server internally. Preliminary testing has been fruitful, and we are actively working on improvements.

Documentation Updates

Following last month's cleanup, we’re adding some fresh content to our docs. It's going to be more insightful and yet simple enough for everyone to understand.

Private Demos

Continuing our momentum from last month, we've been showcasing Mettalex's capabilities to prospective partners. The response has been encouraging, and while we can't reveal details yet, we're optimistic about future collaborations.

In conclusion, we wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude to you, our dedicated community. Your unwavering support and trust propel us forward, and we remain committed to delivering the best of Mettalex. Stay tuned for more thrilling updates, and as always, thank you for being an integral part of our journey.
