Product Updates and Releases
Frontier Campaign, Validator Community and Beyond
On July 1, 2021, Findora v0.2.0 was released on Anvil Testnet. This release introduced several new features to Findora, including changes to Findora’s consensus mechanism to support Proof-of-Stake (PoS), as well as a significant refactor of existing codes.
So far the community has shown a great enthusiasm towards staking on Findora, with hundreds of application submissions received from over 30 countries for the Findora Frontier staking incentive program on Anvil.
Theoretically, a greater and more equally distributed validator demographic equals a more decentralized and democratic level of governance. It’s fantastic to see such a geographically diverse community respond with high engagement towards the opportunity of participating in network governance.
Learn more about validator setup on the Findora network from the documentation and read about the release and updates from the changelog. If you are a validator or interested in staking on Findora, join our Discord channel now to make sure you are updated with the latest network status.
Wallet & Explorer w/ Staking Support on Anvil Testnet
Desktop Wallet with staking function is now live on Anvil testnet, which can be used to store, transfer (non-confidentially and confidentially), stake, un-stake and claim FRA test tokens. Delegators can now participate in and help secure Findora’s Anvil testnet with one click using this user-friendly interface. Go to the #👛 wallet channel on Discord to share your feedback or responsibly disclose any exploits to email@example.com.
A node analytics page embedded in the block explorer featuring validator information (e.g. Name, Vote, Commission Rate) has also been implemented. These stats are of importance for delegators when constructing their delegation portfolio — this dashboard will continue to be updated to provide an intuitive staking experience. We hope you have fun playing with faux tokens and highly recommend exploring Findora’s tokeomics mechanism and the FAQ page to understand the best strategy to maximize token rewards.
