Hello NEAR Devs!
I’m back with another exciting update on the progress of cron.near – the decentralized transaction scheduling project!
Before diving deep into the details, we have a small Branding change, cron.near will be called “CronCat”!
The past month has been focussed on heavy development of rust contracts, tooling and initial website. It has been a blast to experiment with getting the whole system running as one cohesive product. The biggest challenge remaining is finalizing the economic model and documentation. Upon completion of these, we will be reaching out to the community for extensive testing and beginning integrations with other near projects!
- Finished Agent & CLI: “croncat” - GitHub - Cron-Near/croncat
- New repo, a simple CLI and soon SDK that anyone can easily run to earn NEAR by running tasks (executing transactions).
- Built Generic schedule crate: GitHub - Cron-Near/Schedule: A cron expression parser, adapted to work in blockchain environments
- The abstraction that makes a future date prediction possible
- Working through unit & sim tests: GitHub - Cron-Near/contracts: on-chain contracts managing the cron service
- This will be seeing the most updating in the coming weeks
- Deployed initial website: https://cron.cat
- This will be the place anyone can learn about how to buidl cron tasks for automate task scheduling on NEAR!
- Finish all code tests & simulation tests
- Deploy to testnet, instantiating for several use cases: validators, auctions, subscriptions
- Begin marketing & Dev Rel
- Build documentation site
If you are interested in what we’re doing, please DM me:
- Would you like to integrate CRON into your dApp?
- Would you like to help buidl or help run the croncat agents?
Until next time, stay awesome CRONCAT
