This version is compatible with version 1.5.2, meaning that this is not a mandatory update, but highly recommended if you are having sync issues.

If you need personal support please contact the Polis Support Team, you can contact us on our social media accounts:

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.

Polis Nodes

We recently reached a remarkable milestone: 1,500 masternodes. Our next goal is to reach 2,000 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, and we’re excited about what’s ahead and couldn’t be more grateful for 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 a 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. What users can expect from v8.0.0:

— 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.

— Easily import and export wallets. Users will be able to export their mnemonic phrases with a QR code that is fully encrypted. Also, users will be able to import their wallets using a QR scanner.

— Every voucher that is purchased with Polis will have a 0% fee. Vouchers purchased with other cryptocurrencies will have a 4% surcharge.

— This PolisPay version has begun internal testing on the new features.

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, internal testing has begun.

PolisPay cards

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

— The UnionPay cards have arrived at our office. We have begun the integration progress.

— 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: Forum

Community consensus is one of the core values of the Polis philosophy and key to our project. That is why every proposal is important to us. In an effort to give a platform to our community users , we have decided to post the proposals from the Polis Forum on the Weekly Polis. The Polis Forum is the place where community member and anyone can discuss, share and contribute to the project.

Check out this preproposal by our community member Thomas, from Germany:

Also, check out this preproposal to develop a POS app, thus enabling a series of new use cases for Polis.

Governance: PolisPay vouchers expansion

The past couple of weeks the PolisPay team alongside Bitcou GmbH has worked on a couple of improvements to the PolisPay app vouchers feature UI. We want the users to experience to be as smooth as possible, and with the improvements that are being worked on, we are closer to achieving our goal. Big companies and suppliers will be added soon to the USA, Canada, and Mexico.

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. This will include a variety of well known and popular cellular companies in each country. After the test, more countries will follow alongside a variety of providers across the globe.

Prepaid card

A new service will be available to the PolisPay app. It consists of a black Prepaid Mastercard®️ rechargeable with vouchers. Users can be able to order this card via the app and of course load it with vouchers. It will be available with the new PolisPay v8.0.0.

The ePay card is a prepaid card that is managed on a prepaid basis. You can use your card to pay almost everywhere where MasterCard is accepted. On activation and once the card is topped up, you can use it worldwide: For online shopping, to pay in shops or to withdraw cash from an ATM.

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

Community Management and Outreach

In an effort to expand our community and to be able to cater to every user’s needs, we are officially launching a set of Twitter accounts targeted to specific segments of the community.

To our Russian-speaking community, @PolisBc_RU.
And to our Spanish-speaking community, @PolisBc_ES.

On each account, we will tweet everything Polis related in that specific language, be sure to give them a follow!

We want to remind you that you can follow us on the following Social Media Networks:
