Simplifying Blockchain Development with DappStarter: A Review of the Latest Vulcan Blockchain Live Stream
Recently, Vulcan Blockchain and Decentology hosted a live stream event that showcased their DappStarter tool, an all-in-one code generation tool designed to simplify the process of building decentralized applications (dApps) on the Vulcan blockchain. In this review, we’ll take a closer look at some of the key features and benefits of the DappStarter tool that were highlighted in the live stream, as well as discuss the Hackathon (formerly Hyperverse by Decentology) Reboot. Additionally, we witnessed screenshots of the upcoming Vulcan dApp.
The DappStarter tool aims to make it easier for developers to get started with building dApps on the Vulcan blockchain, even if they are unfamiliar with the technology. The tool breaks down a dApp into individual features and generates the full stack application, including front-end client, library code, unit tests for contracts, and server API. This can save developers time and effort, as they no longer need to start from scratch or search for templates on GitHub.
During the live stream, the team emphasized the simplicity and accessibility of the DappStarter tool. While the tool is still in beta and may have some bugs or issues, it has the potential to make blockchain development more accessible to a wider audience. Decentology founder, Nik Kalyani, demonstrated the functionality of the DappStarter tool through both a live Vulcan Blockchain testnet demo as well as a local demo.
Vulcan Core Contract
In addition, the team also announced that the next live stream event will focus on rebasing from Vulcan Core Contract. Currently, the Vulcan Core Contract updates every 15 minutes, which can be too long for developers who need more frequent updates. To address this issue, a new Vulcan Core Contract for developers will be created, which will allow them to insert a custom epoch time. This means that the time between updates can be customized to suit the needs of the developers, potentially as short as 15 seconds or less. This is an exciting development that could help accelerate blockchain development and make it more accessible to a wider range of developers.
The Hackathon, formerly known as the Hyperverse Hackathon by Decentology, was launched back in October to encourage the development of decentralized applications. However, the development team soon realized that many developers were struggling to create dApps due to the tools and skills required. As a result, they developed the DappStarter tool (as mentioned above), which simplifies the development process and makes it more accessible. The modular approach allows developers to easily break down their dApp into individual features, generating a full-stack application.
While the inclusion of rebasing is optional, it can be a powerful tool for enhancing a project’s functionality either from an addition to the project or at the protocol level. During the live stream, the team provided an example of how rebasing could be used in a gaming project, where a membership pass NFT could be used as a token-gate and become part of the in-game rewards system. Or if you wanted rebasing in your protocol, a plant could grow with every rebase or you could receive more ammo.
Overall, the DappStarter tool presented in the Vulcan Blockchain and Decentology live stream is a promising development in the blockchain space. Its focus on simplicity and ease-of-use will help drive innovation and adoption of decentralized applications, and we look forward to seeing how it evolves in the future. Stay tuned for more updates from both the Hackathon Reboot and DappStarter.
