After more than two years of relentless ideation and development, we’re thrilled to announce that the Persistence mainnet is going live tomorrow, March 30th! This will signal the official birth of the Persistence network and the next major milestone on our journey to usher in a new financial paradigm.

The genesis transactions from our validators sent before 12 PM UTC on March 30th, 2021, will be used to publish the final_genesis.json at 1 PM UTC on the same day. The genesis will start immediately after as soon as a quorum is reached.

At this point the network will be live with 16 genesis validators along with 5 Foundation nodes (a total of 21 validators).

We are committed to ensuring the utmost security and robustness of our network, and our strong validator ecosystem is playing a major role on this front. In addition to securing the network, our validators will be enabling XPRT holders to delegate to them for staking (35% APR for stakers in the first year).
