Index, outputIndex fields added to InputInfo, DataInputInfo, inclusionHeight field added to TransactionInfo. Optimizations: /addresses/balances API endpoint now returns only first 100 addresses.

17 September, 2020

As a recent blog post explored, DeFi – decentralised finance – can and will be used in whatever ways developers and the market see fit. This is the nature of open, decentralised systems. You can’t stop it, and there’s a very strong argument for saying we shouldn’t try.

16 September, 2020

#1186 : fix for #1185: command-line parameters support back for docker containers #1184 : Accept to the mempool and propagate locally generated transactions in the digest mode (also, do not download transactions in this mode)

14 September, 2020

The extended UTXO model empowers smart contract writers with a robust and flexible base to build on top of. In contrast to the account model, UTXO-based smart contracts have no concept of a function which you call within a transaction in order for state transitions to take place.

A summary of the news surrounding Ergo in August

3 September, 2020

At the risk of stating the obvious, decentralisation is the hallmark of DeFi. It is decentralisation that brings the benefits of transparency, accessibility, security, immutability, composability, efficiency and more besides to these new financial initiatives.

"This board appointment serves to further strengthen EMURGO’s recently announced partnership with Ergo...and strategically positions EMURGO at the forefront of development of this emerging industry area of UTXO-based smart contracts that is being worked on by Cardano and Ergo."

18 August, 2020

As blockchain technology gains traction, central bank digital currencies are among the most significant applications being developed. But these will inevitably fall far short of the ideal, for one simple reason: control.

16 August, 2020

Everyone is talking about DeFi. Few people are asking what DeFi should look like. Ergo has a vision for what the sector can become.

8 August, 2020

If you're running 3.2.x node, just remove wallet/registry subfolder in your ergo data folder (e.g. ~/.ergo). Unlock the wallet after running the node (you can lock it a minute later). If you had only one key in your wallet, lock it and unlock again to have the master key unlocked.
