Upcoming Developments

Incognito web-based application

  • A detailed topic about how our web-based apps work is published to the community. Once the web extension is launched, you will have one more option to interact with the Incognito chain: web environment. That’s worth your wait!

    Review the proposal and have a say >

Privacy apps

  • As stated in Q2 Roadmap, we are building a trustless bridge to NEAR protocol to turn on privacy mode for NEAR assets and dApps.

  • Unified pToken (aka Privacy Multchain): A new refill mechanism is being developed by the Privacy apps team. This implementation is estimated to complete in 3 weeks.

  • pStable coin and pSaving will be the next 2 new utilities to be built after Unified pToken is launched. Stay tuned!

Growth Efforts

  • @Ducky works directly with Cypherpunk team to monitor the whole bridge development, allocate granted funds as well as form a privacy community.

  • @Jayce_Nguyen @Khanh help making privacy more accessible by integrating more DeFi projects and their assets to Incognito hub.

  • @david starts listing Incognito on data aggregation sites. We believe that it’s time to expose Incognito’s privacy solution to the world.

  • The first version of Incognito Explorer v.2 will be ready by end of this week. Thanks @Corncob and @lam for helping build this new data site.

That’s all for this week’s update. Thank you everyone for your contribution on the network and community.

See you around,
