Weekly Dev Update #43

Hey Y’all,

A big dev update this week, with lots of work going into the integration between Loki core, Lokinet and Loki Messenger. We’re getting closer and closer to the vision of a unified process for Service Nodes, which allows the main network to route data and store messages.


Loki Core



Loki Launcher

The Loki Launcher is a node js package that will allow for the independent management of all the components to run a full Service Node. This includes managing Lokinet, Lokid and the Loki storage server. When Loki Service Nodes begin to route data and store messages for Lokinet and Loki Messenger, the Loki Launcher will need to be run on every single Service Node.

Right now the Launcher is in a testing phase, so you should only use it on Testnet and Stagenet – although feedback/issues and pull requests would be greatly appreciated!

Lokinet Mobile

Last week we started the process of porting Lokinet to run on mobile devices. We’re starting with iOS first as we think it will be the hardest. We will move onto Android at a later point.



Loki Messenger

The Loki Messenger client is in a mostly complete state. Right now the focus is being put on the message server and integration with Lokinet and Lokid.

Loki Wallets

This week we released updates for both the Loki Electron Wallet and the Loki Android Wallet. The Loki Android Wallet now supports version 3.0.0 of Loki, so you should be able to sync past the last block available on the old chain.
