Lendefi Community Update
Lendefi continues to make rapid progress towards the mainnet release of our protocol. We are pleased to provide this community update as part of our commitment to deliver regular updates.
Infrastructure
    Ethereum Bridge During the last week the Binance Smart Chain network suffered congestion due to issues on the bridge and the associated fees. The Ethereum-to-BSC bridge has now been upgraded to support dynamic fees and avoid future transaction delays.
    Domain Lendefi is moving the public site of its protocol to the domain lendefi.finance. To achieve this, we are actively deprecating traffic to lendefi.io. Various servers and services have now been redirected over to lendefi.finance.
Protocol Development
    User Interface Design Work has begun on the integration of the community-voted branding of the web app into a wireframe design. Our plan is to share this with the community for feedback during the 4th week of May in a high-fidelity prototype.
    Protocol The protocol and smart contract interfaces have now been fully defined. We have identified several open-source contracts for use. This will assure that we are using existing and audited code while accelerating our protocol development timeframe. The remaining contracts are being developed within a test-driven development process. These tests are currently being written, with code being added until the tests pass. Lendefi’s code will soon be published to our Github repository, including the protocol interfaces. Our target is to start the audit for new smart contracts within the second week of June.
    Web Interface We have finished reviewing similar projects, to identify “best practices” for acceleration of the protocol’s development. Work on the Solidity contracts has begun, Interfaces have been analyzed, and mockups are currently in progress to integrate for the user interface.
    General The sandboxes for our user interface and Solidity contracts have been created with all the necessary tooling's, code validation, and automated quality checks etc. As code that implements the contract and UI is written, an automatic continuous integration process will be initiated to deploy those functionalities.
Since Blockchain Labs Asia have completed their research, analysis and planning, we have made considerable progress on the protocol and web application. Lendefi has now been able to define a development timeline, as well as appropriate milestones to reach our goals.
We are pleased to share with you the high-level timeline and milestones outlined below:
