Technical developments :construction_worker_man:


Beacon decentralization: Beacon staking implementation is complete. The team is testing it on the dev environment. We can’t wait to release a beta version on testnet for the initiative, hope you would love to help the team to test it out then.

Privacy DAO (pDAO)

The recent proposal for the new network fee has been actively discussed here. A poll was created by a community committee member for voting, thanks for your thoughtful suggestions and interesting conversations. However, once we have the pDAO released, PRV holders can anonymously consensus on the important decisions of the project.

Hardware wallet

The community has asked and we shall deliver! We’ve finished the code for Ledger and are working on the integration between Ledger and the wallet extension. We expect to have an MVP (Minimal Viable Product) for PRV transfer by the end of December.

Besides the three main initiatives, other development efforts for new network fees, masterless keychain support on the wallet extension, and backend improvements are being implemented.

Service Status Dashboard

We have deployed an Incognito Service Status Dashboard. Users can quickly glance at this page to ensure everything is functioning properly. In the event of a network issue, we will update messages on this Dashboard.
