Singapore / 8th July 2020 — ProximaX SiriusID Decentralized Identifier (“DID”) method was accepted and published by the World Wide Web Consortium (“W3C”), the leading international standards organization for the Web. The W3C DID standards are designed to enable interoperability of identification systems across different autonomous decentralized networks.

A DID is a new unique type of identity identifier that enables verifiable and decentralized digital identities. It allows individuals and organizations to generate identifiers using trusted systems and to prove control of those identifiers (authenticate) using cryptographic proofs (for example, digital signatures, privacy-preserving biometric protocols, and so on).

In contrast, the…


SINGAPORE / AUSTRALIA, 24 JUNE 2020 — LatConnect 60, is working with ProximaX to develop an agriculture sector use case for blockchain-based parametric insurance, enabled by high resolution satellite Earth Observation (“EO”) data. LatConnect 60, an Australian company, is in the business of providing cost effective high resolution satellite imagery and radio frequency (“RF”) signal intelligence data.

Climate and natural disasters such as cyclones, droughts, heat waves, floods, earthquakes, and wildfires impact many countries and aspects of development. Furthermore, global climate changes and tectonic shifts are increasingly impacting these disasters more severely. …


Last week, we ran into a few minor issues on the ProximaX Sirius Chain mainnet. This did not affect the integrity of the data on-chain. There were no downtimes, and blocks continued to be generated. Additionally, the validators were active during this period.

Before we report on the issues, it is good to understand first how the Sirius Chain was designed. Sirius Chain has two main components: (1) the P2P node; and (2) the REST API node.

P2P nodes are the primary validator nodes that evaluate, check, counter check, sign, and propose blocks to the Sirius Chain.

REST API nodes


We are pleased to inform everyone that the Sirius Chain main network will undergo an upgrade from version 0.4.3 to 0.6.2.

We highly recommend that all Sirius Chain nodes pull the 0.6.2 version docker image to upgrade.

What exactly is going to happen

There will be two upgrades, software, and a configuration upgrade. The software upgrade will install the following fixes as part of Sirius Chain 0.6.2

Supercontract activation

Reworked block difficulty calculation

Improved config holder implementation

Fixed exchange patricia tree and several bugs in exchange plugin

Updated cache height on rolling back blocks

Fixed deadlock in node selection

The configuration upgrade will introduce new modules…

Why tokenize real estate?

Traditional real estate investment involves significant financial commitments, lengthy and siloed processes, and extensive paperwork.

Real Estate Investment Trusts (“REITs”) have provided a more liquid way to gain access to the real estate sector. However, the process of offering and listing a REIT is often costly and time consuming, and not easily available to issuers with a single real estate asset or a small portfolio.

Tokenizing real estate assets using blockchain technology addresses these problems by providing operational efficiencies, information transparency to real estate transactions, and bringing the additional benefits of fractionalized ownership and liquidity to real estate investment.

Tokenization…


We are pleased to announce that we have released a new version upgrade of our Sirius Chain on the testnet to address a few issues. These issues include deadlock resolution, decentralized exchange stability, and the synchronization process. To be in line with the Sirius Chain upgrade, we have also updated the software development kit library for storage nodes. Finally, the Sirius Supercontract is now released as an entirely new layer on the testnet.

The following are the release notes.
