We're excited to announce that Perkle (PRKL) was added to the list of networks officially supported by MyEtherWallet (MEW) a few weeks ago! MEW has been rolling out updates and integrations, and now that you can access the Perkle network easily from MEW web, here's a new guide on using PRKL with MEW.
Update: Since this blog post was published, Perkle has been officially integrated with MEW! Check out the new guide here.
Last month MyEtherWallet (MEW) discontinued their original wallet (Vintage MEW) forcing everyone to switch over to the new interface (MEW v5), which means it's time to update our guide! If you're wondering how to set up a Perkle (PRKL) wallet using MEW v5, you've come to the right place. Let's jump right in.
Devcon5 is upon us and coincides with Japan Blockchain Week — happening now! We’re sad not to be attending, but for those of you in Osaka for the annual Ethereum gathering, here is a curated list of events, talks and workshops that we would love to attend if we were there. There’s a great mix of programming for developers, researchers, infrastructure operators and more. As a UX Designer I was excited to see several product design and user experience-oriented talks.
We’ve added some new capabilities to PerkleBot, our blockchain-integrated Discord bot built using Discord’s API and Esprezzo middleware libraries. Now in addition to tipping, creating and managing Discord crypto wallets and getting up-to-date network stats, Esprezzo community members can interact with tokens and smart contracts on the Perkle blockchain without leaving Discord. At the same time this update is also helping us test the underlying code connecting the Perkle blockchain to the Esprezzo Network.
Today we’re excited to announce the initial release of the official Esprezzo Block Explorer! If you’re unfamiliar with the function, use case or “raison d’être” of a block explorer, it’s essentially a web application that makes it easy to view, search, and “explore” data and activity on one or more blockchains.
Block explorers are useful for checking the status of transactions, as well as just poking around a blockchain to learn more about how it is structured and what data it contains, but more importantly, a block explorer is an essential tool for blockchain-related software development. Whether creating a new decentralized application (DApp) or integrating blockchain data into an existing product, a well-designed block explorer can increase developer happiness and productivity by allowing them to more conveniently monitor the real-time metrics, activity, and status of blocks, transactions and other on-chain data.
