Boba is a next-generation Ethereum Layer 2 Optimistic Rollup scaling solution. Boba improves transaction throughput, lowers gas fees, and enhances the capabilities of smart contacts.
Boba Network uses community-driven liquidity pools to offer fast exits, shrinking the exit period from days to just a few minutes, while providing LPs with opportunities to earn yield. Boba’s extensible smart contracts will enable developers across the Ethereum ecosystem to build dApps that invoke code executed on web-scale infrastructure such as AWS Lambda, making it possible to use algorithms that are either too expensive or impossible to execute on-chain.
Witnet’s decentralized network of oracle…
Fostering a thriving and diverse community around the Witnet protocol has always been a core priority for Witnet Foundation. We have stood steadfast to our values throughout the years, serving our community, partners, and contributors in the best possible manner.
Our roadmap to radical decentralization and community ownership of the Witnet ecosystem is clear:
TAPI stands for Threshold Activation of Protocol Improvements.
TAPI, as specified by Witnet Improvement Proposal 0014, allows the Witnet network to upgrade the protocol and its validation rules without any significant segmentation risk, aka hard forks.
The mechanism allows mining nodes to signal support for specific network upgrades — normally one or more Witnet Improvement Proposals — by embedding special bits in the blocks they mine.
For a network upgrade to be activated, more than 80% of the blocks mined over a fixed 2–weeks period need to be signaling support for it. …
The Sheikah Witnet Wallet is the most usable way to store and spend Wit tokens, as well as a convenient tool for creating, debugging and deploying Witnet data requests using its visual editor.
Version 1.9.4 introduces important usability improvements that will allow newcomers enter the Witnet ecosystem more easily than ever:
The Witnet project was started in the summer of 2017. Back then, for the sake of getting things started as soon as possible, we decided incorporating Witnet Foundation as a regular C-corp.
We would have loved going with a type of organization that was more in line with the decentralized nature of the project. However, in an attempt to prevent bureaucracy from deterring innovation, we went with the most straightforward legal structure, which felt like a reasonable compromise at the time.
This worked just fine for three years. However, as the Witnet ecosystem thrives and matures, it is time to…

The Witnet decentralized oracle project is releasing an integration with Aragon Govern, the Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAO) framework that enables off-chain voting with on-chain execution, and Discord, the leading voice, video and chat app for online communities.
This 3-way integration makes the most of the powerful and flexible Discord bot API to enable online communities to discuss and vote on proposals right from the place where they live and thrive these days: Discord.
Using this integration, communities can create proposals, vote for them (👍) or against them (👎) using emoji reactions, and get the result of the vote executed on…
DISCLAIMER: I’m one of the authors of the Witnet whitepaper and current chairman of the Witnet Foundation board. I am biased towards Witnet inasmuch as the public sees Witnet as a competitor of Chainlink, and both projects claim to be building “decentralized oracle networks”.
I’m not here to bash Chainlink’s work. I just want to stress a few key points that he made, and explain how we did things differently in Witnet. …
Six months have passed since the Witnet mainnet went live on October 14 2020. In this time, the network has seen an astonishing growth, with near to 1 million nodes competing for producing blocks and solving data requests.
The number of new features, integrations and ecosystem efforts in the pipeline is huge, and while everyone wants to get them all implemented during 2021, there’s no reason to wait for next year to start making things happen. That’s why the Witnet development community is today announcing Witnet-Rust 1.2.
