After months of hard work, the engineers at Discreet Labs have upgraded mainnet to v0.3.35. It’s an extensive upgrade rich with EVM enhancements. One key improvement is increasing the number of validators involved in consensus to 100, increasing the number of nodes and earning rewards and boosting decentralization. It also improves the transaction per second rate on Findora’s EVM chain.

create your node and help support the decentralization of Findora.
The update also prepares the Findora’s EVM layer for new features. One key feature will be adding NFT support to Prism Transfer so that NFTs can be confidentially transferred on Findora. It also paves to the way for upcoming EVM staking and new privacy features like masking wallet addresses.
Besides increasing the functionality of the EVM chain, the v0.3.35 upgrade from the Discreet Labs team makes the EVM layer more efficient. Here are some tweaks they made to reduce computational burden and increase efficiency:
Due to the scope and scale of the upgrade, a community-wide update is necessary. The Discreet Labs team has put together documentation on how to upgrade your validator node. The upgrade takes under two minutes and requires two simple steps.
After December 17th, node operators will also need to update the fn CLI tool to work with the v0.3.35 upgrade. Though not necessary to participate in consensus, updating the CLI tool is necessary to make sure CLI wallet operations are successful.
A Findora Wallet update has also been released to make them compatible with the v0.3.35. Updating the wallet will be as simple as updating any app: head to the wallet page, select your OS, download the new version, and install it.
It’s always good to follow wallet-best practices when updating a wallet. Before updating, make sure you have recorded your private key somewhere offline. Also ensure you have your seed phrase recorded in at least two secure places.
Findora builds privacy through advanced zero-knowledge proof cryptography. An innovative layer-1, it combines a native UTXO ledger optimized for privacy with an EVM extension for programmability and interoperability. Developers can leverage either model as they build dApps with auditable privacy.
