January 2023 update
We had an amazing January to start the year 2022 and are proud to share some of the big updates here with you today.
Mainnet beta update
Last week, we added another 64 block producers to the network, bringing the network to 128 global validators. At the time of writing, Partisia Blockchain mainnet beta has finalized 452,927 transactions across three shards. The network run time has been 100% with zero outages. This is a major accomplishment and we’re excited to add another node operator committee and stress test the network during February 2022.
Node Operator AMA
On 27 January 2023, Partisia Blockchain Co-Founders Kurt Nielsen, Peter Frandsen, and Brian Gallagher hosted the first ever video AMA for the Node Operators. It started with a thorough presentation from Kurt regarding the different nodes the network can run, the built in incentives, and near time road map. After the presentation, the team answered questions from the community.
Public sale details
The much anticipated public sale details are finally coming together! As the official mainnet genesis block is currently planned for March, the public sale will occur shortly after. There are a few variables to consider regarding the actual mainnet launch time and the Foundation remains flexible on the exact launch date based on the following:
- Open sourcing the libraries during February and the associated bug bounty campaigns. The results of these campaigns have a heavy weight on the determination of the final launch date.
- Node Operator stability. As more node operators enter the committee during February the network requires 24/7 monitoring to ensure stability is still 100% and the new Node Operators are properly managing their nodes. Node Operators who fail to maintain a stable node will have to be bounced from the committees before launch.
- Based on the findings of these campaigns, the schedule for mainnet launch can change and the Foundation maintains its complete discretion over the exact date. For now, we are comfortable to say mainnet is on schedule still for a March launch and at latest a spring launch.
