This has been an exciting week
Apart from the stats, Cardano also revealed all the new projects that the developers worked on over the last week. For instance, the consensus team focused on cleaning up and benchmarking the UTXO-HD prototype.
The improvements that might be necessary for the upcoming revisions of the prototype were also discussed with the ledger team. Cardano mentioned that the Plutus team worked on increasing script capacity, inliner optimization, and the Plutus debugger MVP.
The Mithril team, on the other hand, was working on a mechanism to handle seamless updates to the Mithril networks in the event of breaking changes that necessitate a synchronous update of the signer nodes.
Moreover, Input Output Global also made an important announcement last week regarding a new toolkit. IOG released the first iteration of the sidechains development toolkit, which comes with a technical specification for building sidechains on Cardano.
