Beam News

A big week for Beam with the unveiling of the Beam Roadmap for 2021. A huge spec-out of the confidential DeFi ecosystem coming to Beam! One of the central points of this is the Beam governance module that will allow for voting in the DAO, and staking $BEAM to receive $BEAMX. This is something that is expected to drop next month, with the date TBA.

Roadmap Highlights:

  • DAO Core: the Governance App

  • Web Wallet

  • Confidential Asset Swaps

  • Dapp Store

  • Decentralised Bridges

  • Oracles

  • Stable Coin

Research and Development

Development on FF 6.1 is well underway! The release will include many a small bug fix, along with improvements to the max privacy transactions, including the addition of payment proofs for such. Along with this, contract shaders for the DAO core governance are being worked on, preparing for the BeamX launch next month.


A great giveaway from our friends at Coin Joy to celebrate the successful Hard Fork!
