Polis Core

A new version of Polis Core is in the works, v1.6.0. This version will address some issues that we found in the previous release, and will also introduce:

— Long Living Masternode Quorums (LLMQ): is a deterministic subset of the global deterministic masternode list. The main task of an LLMQ is to perform threshold signing of consensus related messages.

— ChainLocks: a technology for near-instant confirmation of blocks and finding near-instant consensus on the longest valid/accepted chain.

— Proof-of-service ban for masternodes (PoSe): masternodes that fail PoSe verification will then be removed from the valid masternode subset.

This version has begun testing and will be released shortly.

Partnership announcement

We are glad to announce the inclusion of TELOS to the PolisPay payment platform.

TELOS has always pushed towards innovation and cryptocurrency adoption, contributing new technologies that mainly focus on providing an open-source, decentralized blockchain with existing services like AmiCloud and the indieGO-Appstore for its users. We have found great potential in the PolisPay project, and we believe this breakthrough will have a profound impact on TELOS users and the whole crypto community.

Olympus Protocol

The Olympus protocol was born when the Polis Core team realized the necessity of innovating on the blockchain technology field. The protocol inherits the fundamentals of the Bitcoin, Dash, and PeerCoin protocols, with some minor improvements.

With a new base code, the Olympus protocol seeks to give the development team the opportunity of innovating on uncharted aspects of the blockchain technology.

Important progress has been made regarding the Olympus network, the Olympus testnet is 60% and we will soon begin testing on the pre-alpha testnet. Once we launch the testnet we will release the technical paper.

Community Management and Outreach

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