A big week with the Beam Roadmap Update dropping earlier today and 7.0 releasing onto testnet late last week, and the BNS being fleshed out as we speak.
Let us dive in and check it all out!
With the advances to the infrastructure level of Beam it is perfect timing to bring an update to the Beam Roadmap. This presents what we consider the crucial elements needed for Beam, and private DeFi as a whole, in order to move both the ecosystem and the space forward and provide truly unstoppable and uncensored decentralised applications!
The Beam Roadmap Update is presented on the forum for feedback, and we welcome the community to share their thoughts and ideas as we press forward. With the key elements coming into place, the stage is set for Beam to take hold of the missing component in DeFi. Privacy.
Jump into the Beam Forum and et us known your thoughts!
The 7.0 Testnet release is now live, so if you haven’t already, fire it up and get a testing!
Initially the Beam Hardfork was set for 1,790,000. This is being pushed back to 1,820,000. The main reason for such is to allow for ample testing and infrastructural upgrades. The fork presents a huge upgrade to the network, and this extra time allows for the utmost precision whilst doing so.
The wallet release for the upcoming Hardform will be 7.0 version, expected to be released in the near future. It is encouraged when the time comes to upgrade, and after the Hardfork this will be required in order to acces your Beam and utilise the network. Huge advancements to the underlying tech are coming with it, so we are excited for the upgrade!
As mentioned above, the Beam Roadmap Update is live on the forum and feedback is welcomed from the community. Share your thoughts and opinions as we look to the future of private DeFi!
Beam Name Service (BNS):
The BNS is seeking a) a new name, and b) feedback as to the specification presented. The BNS is a way for users to purchase more human readable addresses, adding to the usability experience and fun when interacting in the ecosystem.
