The Transition to Proof of Stake

The transition to proof of Stake (PoS) from Proof of Work (PoW) is very close now. We are estimating Tuesday 14 May 2018 at 08:00 UTC. That is just a few hours from the time of this update.

We've successfully grown our baby blockchain to nearly 45,000 blocks! It seems small in some ways. But, it is a significant accomplishment, and literally, everyone who participated is to thank. Thank you!

Get ready to remove your reservations and start staking instead of mining! I'll be posting more information on how to do precisely this very soon.

We will be publishing the new getting started guide that removes the mining portions and updates the staking portions for everyone.

 

Github

Those of you that have been helping us with bootstrapping our the CivX blockchain know you have been downloading from private file repositories. That ends with the publishing of v1.0.0.5. That will happen in just a few days. The GitHub repository will open at that time. With the release of CivX-Qt_v1.0.0.5, all downloads will be directly from the GitHub releases. You should always run the most recent version.

Moving forward all downloads of the CivX-Qt Wallet. You will always find the most recent version here:

Block Explorer

I have seen the newest revision on the Blockexplorer for the CivX blockchain in its alpha state. We have been testing an bug busting. I'm excited about this particular piece of our puzzle. It allows live query of the CivX blockchain by a transaction ID, block number, or a wallet address. We can't wait to share it with everyone!
