About the new Nebulas mainnet

The new mainnet will add the Proof of Devotion (PoD) mechanism which is the most important upgrade since Nebulas NOVA. PoD is one of the core mechanisms of the Nebulas blockchain and is one of the many unique features when compared with other blockchain projects. This novel consensus mechanism is built on the basis of the contribution size of the community. The mechanism comprises two parts:

Consensus mechanism: Once PoD goes live, the Nebulas blockchain will be fully decentralized relying on the community for node operation.

Governance mechanism: The consensus nodes which produce the most blocks will be chosen to be governance nodes and will decide if proposals submitted on Go Nebulas will be approved and become active projects. All governance votes will utilize on-chain voting.
