March 2023 update
As the first quarter of 2023 draws to a close, Partisia Blockchain is celebrating a successful start to the year. Our team participated in the renowned Paris Blockchain Week, where we showcased our latest solutions, including our revolutionary private voting technology. Additionally, we celebrated International Women’s Day with our Paris Hackathon winner, Thousand Faces, a community-driven investment platform that provides inclusion and accessibility for female and diverse founders. We are committed to supporting Thousand Faces’ goals and are thrilled to witness our network being utilized to address societal challenges. We also welcomed our new Head of Community, Tiago Serôdio, who will provide expert guidance on scaling and diversifying our community. At Partisia Blockchain, we remain committed to driving innovation, empowering our community, and delivering cutting-edge solutions.

Solutions Spotlights campaign
First and foremost, we were happy to meet our community members in Paris at the end of the month. Visitors of our booth during the Paris Blockchain Week were treated to exclusive merchandise and met with our delegation. Our community members were very supportive and active during the voting for the inaugural Paris Blockchain Week Awards. This afforded us to showcase one of our key solutions — private voting. Thousands have cast their votes and had an opportunity to experience our zero-knowledge voting. Therefore, we start our Solutions Spotlight campaign with a focus on private voting. Each week we will highlight one of our solutions and our new Head of Community, Tiago Serôdio, will lead a series of Spotlight AMAs and Q&As. The first one took place on 30 March 2023 focusing on private voting. The next ones will focus on secret surveys (6 April 2023), front running (13 April 2023) and privatized settlement layer (20 April 2023). Stay tuned!
In March, development work was mostly focused on improvements to key infrastructure functions. From fixing bugs to improving various invocations, we have been continuing to improve upon existing functionality.
In April, we plan to launch our first version of our Eth pricing Oracle on our testnet. This is an important milestone for our mainnet where BYOC transfers will now accurately reflect actual prices. This will both benefit our node operators to get more accurate fee distributions on their BYOC rewards, as well as allow for more accurate transferability on our Hermes bridge.
