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.
As we continue to prepare our smart contract integration product suite for beta testing and follow developments in the blockchain space, it’s becoming increasingly clear how important interoperability and token portability is going to be. That’s why we created XPZ, an experiment in building a sustainable and extensible cross-chain programmable asset.
On Monday we began and completed a network and protocol upgrade for Perkle. This was a planned hard fork to enable several important new features, patches and performance improvements.
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.
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.
Update: PRKL was listed on STEX April 4! Since then, it's also been added to portfolio trackers Blockfolio and Delta.
As we continue building out our product suite for developers and organizations, demand for Perkle is growing, as it is an important component of the Esprezzo ecosystem. As such, we want to increase the security of the platform and make it as easy as possible for developers to build on. Not every developer is able to mine the coins needed to deploy a smart contract, and miners who help secure the network need a quick and easy way to liquidate their holdings. The obvious solution to both those problems is an exchange listing. Providing liquidity to the network will attract new miners and as a result make Perkle a more robust and safe network to build and transact on. And so we’re pleased to announce an exchange listing for Perkle! Starting April 4, you will be able to trade PRKL on STEX.
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.
UPDATE: This guide provides instructions for Vintage MEW, which was killed by MEW in October 2019. Find the guide for the new MEW here!
In recent weeks, we have received many requests for help setting up a Perkle (PRKL) wallet using MyEtherWallet (MEW). It is a great addition to the Command Line wallet and the Perkle wallet for Discord that you can use via our PerkleBot.
While working on the Esprezzo platform and rapid application development tools for building blockchain-integrated apps, we saw an opportunity to provide developers a performant, cost-efficient, egalitarian blockchain and smart contract platform to build and test on — one that’s less congested and focused on fostering development rather than a speculative trading instrument. And so, we built Perkle: a mineable Proof-of-Work, fairly released Ethereum-compatible blockchain and smart contract platform.
