A big week and a big month as we gear up for the Hardfork, and further additions to the Beam confidential DeFi ecosystem! With this comes some changes, one being that of the Confidential Asset Issuance requirements. Let us dive in!
BEAM Confidential Assets
The Beam Confidential Assets (CAs) launched in 2020, and with it came an amount of Beam to be locked in order to be issued. At the time the reasoning was to avoid any unnecessary spam on the network. With the DeFi applications set to launch in the near future, and the increased need and potential for said CAs, it is time to reflect on that number and look into the reduction of the amount required.
You can read the full breakdown and history of CAs, and why the reduction is being considered and bought to the community to discuss.
Discussion will take place on the Beam Forum post below. Be sure to share your thoughts and opinions, and ask any related questions if clarification is needed.
If the general consensus in the forum is to reduce the ammount of $BEAM required, we will host a poll on the forum to come to a new amount to lock for CAs. As the change requires a Hardfork, we are doing so now on the forum, as to do it on the Voting Dapp will require waiting for the 7.0 release, and a future Hardfork. After this, all the governance voting will be conducted via the Voting Dapp.
