Presenting the Release of Noether’s Proof of Stake: Version 1.1

We are pleased to announce the release of Noether’s Proof of Stake System: Version 1.1, one of our milestones for Q1. This release represents an upgrade to the Noether Node and CTSI staking system, preceding the upcoming staking delegation release, which is in the works for our Q2 release.

Full changelog details can be found via our Github here, or summarized below:

In addition, the following changes were made:

The full release can be found on Noether’s public Github repository here. All CTSI holders that are currently staking will be required to update their nodes and authorize the new protocol via the Cartesi explorer.

NOTE: All users who are running their own node must authorize the new protocol. Users who don’t upgrade the node or don’t authorize the new protocol will cease producing blocks on March 15, 2021. Users who hire new nodes from now on will only participate in the new protocol, starting March 15, 2021.

This does not include any users who are using custodial staking services such as MyCointainer or Coinone

Step by Step Instructions to Upgrade

Please see the below instructions to upgrade your own node. If you are running a node via Heroku, see the following link: and then continue on step 3.

3. Head over to the Cartesi Explorer.

4. Click the authorize button (as shown in the picture below):

5. Approve the transaction via your Metamask. Once the transaction is processed, your node will stop giving you the new protocol authorization message and will start to exhibit a message similar to one of these two instead (the exact message depends on how long before the protocol launch date you update your node):
