REMEMBER, NOBODY ON THE POLIS CORE OR SUPPORT TEAM WILL MESSAGE YOU DIRECTLY.

The recent updates were essential for DIP3 integration. We would like to thank everyone for their patience, we are aware that these updates can be tedious, but they are essential for the security and future of our network.

DIP3 FAQ

Moving forward with the update to DIP3 masternodes, we have created the following FAQ regarding DIP, this includes tools and video guides to help with the migration from regular masternodes to DIP3 masternodes:

We have created the following tool to help with the migration from regular masternodes to DIP3 masternodes:

https://platform.polisnodes.io/dip3

This tool assumes your masternode is already installed in your VPS.

Polis Nodes

Polis Nodes now supports DIP3 masternodes.

PolisNodes will now show the status for DIP3 masternodes, this status shows what needs to be done to have a DIP3 masternode ready in the platform. You don’t have to recreate your node, you need to follow instructions given in the “INSTALL DIP3” button.

Also, all new masternodes created in PolisNodes will automatically be DIP3. You can create your DIP3 masternodes here:

https://platform.polisnodes.io/


We are now over 1350 masternodes!

We are closer to our next milestone; 1500 masternodes.

As our community continues to grow every day, we’d like to thank you for your support. Without the community, we wouldn’t have been able to reach this remarkable milestone, we’re excited about what’s ahead and couldn’t be more grateful of sharing that with our great community.

PolisPay

The team has been working on the next PolisPay release, version 8.0.0. This release will be complete revamp to the platform, where new technologies will allow it to be more stable than ever.

This revamp emphasizes the restructuration of the services and moving them to brand new architecture. In such a way, that it prioritizes both the efficiency and security of the information while also making the PolisPay app a much faster and fluid experience.

Both the vouchers and shift services have received tremendous upgrades; we can’t wait to share the revitalized services with our community.

Trezor integration has been finalized. Desktop users can now save their crypto assets in the safest way possible via Trezor hardware wallets.

As part of our initiative of making the entire Polis ecosystem open-source and accessible, the team will make the entire PolisPay repository open for anyone who would like to contribute and enrich the sense of community. We will be able to build upon each other’s ideas and discoveries, solve problems together, promote collaboration, and thus become more secure and stable.

This update is still being worked on and has an estimated release due in two weeks.

PolisPay: website

For the past couple of weeks, we have been working hard on our brand new website. This website features the new rebranding that was unveiled a couple of weeks ago. This has been in the works for quite some time and we’re really happy to share the final result with the entire community.

The website is now live!

PolisPay cards

Regarding the PolisPay cards, there are some updates with the on-going process we would like to share:

— The UnionPay cards have reached Mexican soil and are in Guadalajara. In just a matter of days, they will arrive at the office where we will begin the integration process.

— We are still waiting for the Cacao license

— Final documentation for establishing a company in Europe is awaiting paperwork. This will allow us to sign a contract with a card provider company for Europe.

There’s a real possibility that we might be able to integrate the three main card providers: Visa, Mastercard, and Union Pay. Although it is possible we don’t want to take it for granted; we will update the situation.

Governance: PolisPay vouchers expansion

The past couple of weeks the PolisPay team alongside Bitcou GmbH have worked on a couple of improvements to the PolisPay app vouchers feature UI. We want the users experience to be as smooth as possible, and with the improvements that are being worked on we are closer to achieving our goal.

In addition, a variety of vouchers are being added, such as, mobile top up, internet recharges, DTH providers and many more. Currently we are testing it for the USA, Canada and Mexico. We are looking forward to the updates!

Mobile recharge

In the near future users will be able to recharge their mobile phones via the PolisPay app. These vouchers are currently being tested for the USA, Canada, and Mexico. After the test more countries will follow alongside a variety of providers across the globe.

This features are still being worked on, updates will soon follow.

Community Management and Outreach
