Word on the BLOCK: 28th February

  • The latest wallet and Block DX updates have been released! These are the most important releases to date with the launch of Block DX 1.0!
    Download Blocknet Wallet 3.12.1 | Download Block DX 1.0
  • PLEASE UPDATE YOUR WALLET TO VERSION 3.12.1. If you have not yet updated, then you are currently on a fork and should update as soon as possible. If you need help, drop by our Discord/Telegram support channels (// | ) See this article for more information about these updates.
  • Block DX will soon be made available on AWS Marketplace, offering push-button deployments of Block DX that are pre-configured and have fully synced chains for trading or running a Service Node.
  • XRouter Beta is under development with a planned release slated for next month. XRouter will soon take Blocknet to new levels of blockchain interoperability. Blocknet currently supports exchange interoperability, allowing digital assets to be trustlessly exchanged in a decentralized manner using XBridge. XRouter will offer the Blocknet Protocol support for communication interoperability, allowing for different blockchains to interact in a decentralized manner via a lite client. This will enable blockchains and dApps to utilize each other’s functionalities and services, extending the utility of these assets beyond their current blockchain infrastructure. Blocknet’s utility would subsequently extend across all blockchains.
  • Block DX has various items in development including right-click functionality, the ability to view additional order details, research on a memory leak, redesigned configuration process to make it even simpler, and bug fixes such as order form inputs not being registered with right-click pasting.
  • Coin announcements are continuing! The regular recap of the latest tokens to be added to Block DX and the Internet of Blockchains has also resumed. You can check the latest additions in the most recent Recap here.
  • Various articles are currently under review before being published including an in-depth look at the history of decentralized exchanges and a DX comparison spreadsheet.
  • The proposals for Superblock 820800 can now be viewed here. Voting will close on block 817920, but your node must remain active until block 820800 for your vote to count.
  • The in-progress (and previous) proposals can be viewed on, on or within the Proposals screen of the wallet.
  • Please note, proposals are being submitted to the forum individually so please make sure you scroll down and take your time to look over each proposal.
  • An introduction to Superblocks and a guide to submitting and voting for proposals, can be found here. There is also a proposal category in the Blocknet Discord for focused and specific discussion of proposals and ideas. Within this category, there is a channel called #anon-snode-feedback for Service Node owners to provide anonymous feedback on proposals.
