As a prototype hApp there are inherent limitations to Elemental Chat. A few testers have bumped up against one of those limitations as we’ve approached 10,000 total messages. We did not optimize the app for this large number of messages being pulled down by all users. As we move to open it up to even more concurrent users, the Holo team is working on an enhancement that should be ready for dev testing later this week.
Progress continues on functionality for Holo applications, and simultaneously the Holochain devs continue with deep intergration testing for sharding and native support for countersigning to enable atomic state changes across user’s source chains.
