On May 12nd, 17:00 CEST (it was supposed to be CET, but European Summer Time is still a thing) Persona migrated to Ark core V 2.3. By now, there are 48 delegates that migrated and only 3 remaining to do the upgrade.
This is a new important step stone in the development of our product, one that brings us closer to our goal. It was a team effort and a special thanks goes to geops, who offered his services and delivered as promised. This is the power of community and common effort and I have no doubt this is the way to a successful story.
Why did we do the migration?
There are two main reasons for the migration:
Ark core V2.3 is more stable, more secure and better prepared for masses.
Also, the attributes are added as plugins which means there is no more fork required when new attributes are added and the community or businesses can develop their own attributes.
We migrated! Now what?
Now, we need to migrate our testnet to V 2.3 and develop the current functionalities available in the current V1 running testnet in V 2.3. We started the development already and the current functionalities should soon be available on the V2.3 testnet.
With the V2.3 testnet, we will change also the look & feel of the identity wallet which eventually will be packed as mobile application.
With the migration and the completed test process of attributes on the platform, we feel confident enough to launch our mainnet. Also, we will launch a new website and start a marketing campaign.
Once the attributes added on the mainnet , Persona is fully functional and the existing partnerships will be in effect. This means that Persona can and will be used by businesses to perform KYC/AML and we as consumers will be in control over our personal data. Our partner acquisition process thus far has been through our own network. Now we will start to scale up this process with our marketing campaign.
This is a new milestone in the development of Persona solution, one that brings us to a more mature product, ready to face and conquer the world. We maintain our focus, dedication and trust in our product.
