On this page we expand on the progress we have made during the internal testing phase.
Last few months, BitCanna has established a presence in several Cosmos testnets, including Regen Network, Microtick, Akash-Big Bang, Band Protocol, Agoric, Althea, and Game of Zones.
Thanks to this, both our developer team and operating team have gained significant experience and established multiple social relations with parties active in the Cosmos ecosystem. As a result, this has greatly benefited our internal testnet.
In phase 0, we decided whether to develop on Launchpad or Stargate, with Stargate being very new and hardly any available tools.
The performance tests and the impossibility of dealing with IBC encouraged us to abandon the LaunchPad version (although more stable at the time), and thus we made a definitive move to Stargate. During phase 0, we also started to teach the BitCanna employees and admins about Cosmos internally.
After moving to Stargate, we started testing all the fundamental aspects of the new version and left the more advanced and new features for later. We encountered several problems due to the lack of development in the community, but this soon changed.
An overview of what we have accomplished:
Learned about Cosmos and taught our employees and admins
Wrote (technical) documentation
Applied updates, managed events, and errors, etc.
Ran community (free) explorers and added customizations
Ran community (free) wallets and added customizations
Developed the swap system (from our current chain to Cosmos)
