Since inception, Beam has set out to champion privacy for all, and to enable Beamers to keep their finances as they should be; private and confidential. The scope of the Beam Dream, has expanded from confidential store of value and means of exchange, to a suite of private-by-design decentralised applications. This has had a massive boost in recent months with the announcement of the BeamX DAO. We are now in the home stretch for the BeamX launch, which is set to bring the best-in-class privacy we all know and love to the DeFi space!

The date for staking 🥩 is still to be announced, so until then, soon™️.

With all that’s going on in Beam, from the upcoming BeamX launch, to the confidential DeFi suite that is coming to fruition, it’s easy to forget what we are here for… Privacy!

Since the get go it has been the mission of Beam to give people control over the privacy of their finances! In the last month alone there was 120,000 transactions on the Beam network! With the launch of staking Beam for BeamX, onchain governance in the BeamX DAO, and the plethora of DeFi use cases coming to the network, this number is set to explode. All on Beam, all in privacy!

Research, Development, Product

As we prep for the kickoff of BeamX, also in the works is the releases for Fierce Fermion 6.1. Some wicked updates incoming for the next release, so let’s check out some of the highlights:

Along with this, extensive work is ongoing for development documentation for building on Beam. Combined with the work towards tooling, and the BeamX Dapp support devs, the ecosystem is set to flourish!

Beam 2021 Week #27 - Just DAO It

Beam News

A busy week for Beam team as we push forward to the launch of BeamX coming later this month. A big part of which is onboarding new users, and bringing them in as Beamers. In this light we released a great piece on Introducing BeamX: Privacy-by-Default & Maximum Confidentiality DeFi ecosystem!

As we come closer to the launch, more info and updates on staking, voting, and the overall governance, will be shared with the community!

Coming soon ™ :

  • BeamX DAO Forum
    This will be the place for overall discussion on the upcoming DAO governance voting, and to present supporting evidence and pros and cons of each option. This will present a key role in the DAOs governance!

  • BeamX Tokenomics
    Outlining the initial phase for distribution, where staking Beam for BeamX will be possible. This will also outline how further phases will be decided and enacted.

  • BeamX Proposals Overview
    This will outline the different types of proposals for the BeamX DAO. From fully on chain voting with contracts being triggered on completion to that of signalling intent for change that cannot be conducted via a contract.

Research, Development, Product

Much of the current focus is on the imminent launch of the BeamX DAO and staking contracts. Due to the nature and importance of such, this is undergoing strenuous testing to ensure, not only a smooth launch, but secure and safe BeamX distribution contracts. The product team is working on the interfaces for staking, for Beamers to easily get some BeamX in their hot hands!

Another big focus currently is on improving both the current documentation, and increasing the documentation available for developers building on Beam. Expect to see more on this in the coming weeks!

Sign up, stay tuned, and see you all next week!

Beam 2021 Week #26 - The DAO

Beam News

Another week closer to the launch of the BeamX DAO governance app, so what better time to check out some of the inner workings of the DAO itself. The exact launch time will be announced closer to the date, and is expected to come later next month. This will be the first of onchain governance for Beam, and the first chance to get some BeamX, via the initial staking campaign.


Some BeamX DAO highlights:

  • The initial Beam staking campaign is aimed to distribute a part of the BeamX DAO voting power to BEAM holders. This initial campaign will kick off with the launch of the BeamX DAO Dapp.

  • This will be the first of many, with the DAO itself being more involved in the later stages of distribution. These will contribute to bootstrapping liquidity for the various confidential DeFi Dapps that are in the works.

  • The Beam staking campaign will distribute $BEAMX through a separate Campaign contract. This contract is separate from the DAO Core contract for the sake of security and flexibility of the staking campaign. This flexibility will allow the campaign to be prolonged if deemed neccesary.

  • The intention is to give more opportunities to smaller Beam holders, and protect them from whales in some way. To do so, we use a quadratic voting approach: more weight will be given to the duration of staking, and less weight to the sum of Beam staked.

  • There will be no lock-up periods. You will be able to unstake your $BEAM at any time, and have them available in your wallet after a short cool-down period.

These are but a few key aspects for the incoming BeamX DAO. More info on the exact parameters and what to expect for launch will be presented in the coming weeks.

Research, Development, Product

Keeping in theme, some key developments are taking place on the product front, fleshng out the UI for the upcoming BeamX DAO launch. You can check out the screens for the Dapp interfaces and information provided here!

The core contracts for the initial governance and distribution of BeamX are all but complete, undergoing rigorous testing as we speak.
