On 2021-01-28, Vechain.org announced the launch of Sync 2 and Connex 2 Beta. Vechain was confident to launch VechainSync 2 and Connex 2 Beta in Q2 of 2021.
“Both Sync 2 and Connex 2 are still in the alpha testing stage and should strictly be used for development purposes only, and are not recommended to be used in a production environment to handle live digital assets. The Beta version for general users approximately will be available in Q2 2021.“
Now if Vechain team is able to meet the deadline we will see Sync 2 and Connex 2 before June 2021 ends, as Q2 of 2021 is closing with the end of this month.
Lets recall what are Sync2 and Connex 2.
Vechain Sync 2:
Blockchain dApps are not simple as dApps can be restrictive and they force users to select specific browsers to access certain wallets. Users also have to switch wallets depending on what device they are using, Desktop or mobile. Also, dApp users have to manage crypto assets, pay gas fees and have some technical expertise to use decentralized platforms.
“Sync 2 is the brand new digital wallet developed by VeChain’s blockchain team. It is designed to address above problems and accelerate the mass adoption of dApps built on the VeChainThor public blockchain by creating a truly seamless user experience irrespective of OS or device.
Sync 2, Vechain newly developed digital wallet app, in tandem with key protocols such as VIP-191 (fee delegation) and VIP-201 (DaaS) provide the missing pieces of critical infrastructure in enabling the true mass adoption of dApp technology.
With Sync 2, users are no longer restricted by browser type, mobile or PC usage. Using dApps becomes as simple and intuitive as any other web-based application. In combination with VeChain’s native fee delegation protocols, users will no longer need to manage crypto to pay gas fees. Instead, dApp owners or DaaS service providers can fund gas fees on a user’s behalf.
Sync 2 is designed to work with all mainstream web browsers (e.g., Chrome, Safari, MS Edge, Firefox, etc), allowing dApps to be accessed by ever-greater numbers of users
It can be installed as a local app on your desktop or mobile device, or used simply as a web application with no installation requirement, providing maximal flexibility and consistent user experience.”
Vechain Connex 2:
“Connex 2 provides APIs for developers to interact with VeChainThor. Moreover, it provides an efficient way for developers to utilize VeChainThor’s unique features such as the multi-task transaction (MTT) and fee delegation protocols.
It allows dApps to invoke Sync 2 through a simple API call.
It implements the VIP-201 protocol, paying the way for dApps to adopt the VIP-191 fee delegation service.
It is designed to be backward compatible with the previous Sync desktop wallet app, allowing existing dApps to upgrade from previous versions of Connex to Connex 2 without affecting their current users.
As an example, the lead developer of Sync 2, Bin Qian, shows how to build up a dApp using Connex 2 and Sync 2 with just a few dozen lines of code.”
Both products were in ALPHA phase in Jan 2021, But we hope as per announcement Beta version for general users will be available before June 30.
