IoTeX Project Updates #15 — May 22 — June 25, 2019

Greetings everyone! We are back with our Project Update Report №15 for 05/22–06/25 period. During this time our team has been working around the clock to keep on delivering new products and making improvements to existing, as well as, introducing a way for having a decentralized community of global supporters, launch of the 1st token and Dapp on IoTeX network, new listing, integrations with 3rd party wallets and contributions from Delegates.

We have prepared this blog in order to do a recap of our recent achievements to share with our beloved community.

Tech & Development >>>

Mainnet & Post-Mainnet Status Update

IoTeX Mainnet Alpha has been live for more than one month and things are going great! Here are some updates:

  • ~1 billion IOTX staked/voted (maintaining 30% of the 3.5bn circulating supply)
  • Almost 1,000 epochs
  • 50+ Delegates from 18 countries
  • An increase from 18 to 24 Consensus Delegates
  • Welcome our newest Delegate: BlackPool and Citex
  • New Delegates coming: shEOS, Starfish, etc.

Some of the things that we are working on & will be rolling out:

  • Vitality (VITA) community token — our first token & Dapp
  • Member Portal — you one-stop shop for all things blockchain & IoT
  • AvoBoard — our in-house hardware

Check all of them in our new blog :arrow_right:https://medium.com/iotex/iotex-post-mainnet-roadmap-vita-token-member-portal-avoboard-8eb66e75687f
On June 12, we have reached 40% of the IOTX circulating supply staked/voted and expanded to 24 Consensus Delegates + increased the epoch bonus to 350K IOTX per day. Right before this, we have executed a hard fork at block height 432001 that went smoothly in order to implement and push new improvements to our network. This update v0.6.2 carries non-compatible bug fixes, major improvements, and new features:

  • Fix the double gas fee on contract deployment and execution;
  • Add new RPC APIs to query and subscribe to raw blocks;
  • Avoid signing asynchronous contract read request;
  • Improve BFT consensus pre-commit state handling;
  • Migrate a project from go dep to go mod;
  • Use golang 1.12.5 compiler by default (but still compatible with 1.11.5);
  • Remove native voting protocol from the codebase.

Vitality (VITA) Community Token
