PulseChain is a blockchain-based ecosystem offering significant enhancement over the legacy Ethereum platform. Co-founded by Richard Heart of “HEX ” the network will feature its own cryptocurrency “Pulse” (Symbol PLS).
According to the network’s website, PulseChain was created to lower fees on Ethereum, enrich holders of Ethereum projects and NFT users, lower environmental pollution through its POS consensus as well as improve the “game theory”- or introduce 0% inflation.
Following its launch in 2021, the network went through a sacrificial phase which involved users sacrificing various tokens to the network using MetaMask after which they would receive PLS tokens when the network is “hard-forked” on Ethereum.
Number of Contributors
Unlike most blockchain networks which use Github, PulseChain developers use Gitlab to develop, secure and operate their code. PulseChain activities are piloted under the project name “Go-Pulse”, which is described as the “official implementation of the PulseChain node, a fork of “Go-Ethereum.”
PulseChain welcomes contributions from anyone on the internet and is grateful for even the smallest of fixes. Those willing to contribute are required to fork, fix, commit, and send a pull request for the maintainers to review and merge into the main codebase. Those who wish to submit more complex changes are also allowed to contact PulseChain’s devs on social media sites such as Telegram.
Currently, 9 members have been added by the project’s Maintainers or Owners. To be specific, there are 5 developers, 3 maintainers and 1 owner who happens to be Richard Heart (aka Richard J. Schueler).
Number Of Issues And Pull Requests
Go-Pulse has three branches; The Master which is described as the merge branch, the “better gas estimation” branch and the “module path” branch.
As of 18th May 2021, there were 37 closed issues out of the total 38 issues. Further, out of a total of 42 “merge requests,” 36 had been merged with 3 remaining open. The other 3 had been marked as “closed” which suggests they were rejected.
Number of Commits
The PulseChain network has been flaring with activity as the network inches closer to hitting the mainnet. One can tell about a network’s health and chances of survival just by looking at how many and how frequently developers commit to its source code.
Currently, there are 13,317 commits to Go-Pulse.
Number of Releases
Since its debut, the PulseChain network has had 16 releases. Releases refer to the completion and deployment of nodes for use on the network. Whereas releases are either qualified as major or minor, each one of them has its own intended benefit and is deployed to improve the network’s general health.
Based on Gitlab, the three most recent releases have been targeted at fixing lags due to transaction hash mismatches, optimizing validator rotation as well as a beta release of the sacrifice credit allocation and lastly, and a release aimed at fixing transactional failures due to gas underestimation.
