The Olympus codebase is finalized and being prepared to enter an audit process, so our developers are focusing on building tools for wallet and block explorer.

This is a huge step for the Polis Blockchain Project, we will let the community know as soon as we are started with this process.

Testnet

The Olympus Semi Public Testnet has been running stable for almost 2 months now. This is a good sign as it demonstrates our codebase is stable enough to support updates and changes without causing instability trough the network.

We have received help from some amazing community members to set up and run the Testnet, we would like to thank them for spotting a couple of problems and reporting them so they could be fixed.

The network has been operational for a few weeks, and things are progressing nicely. Moving forward, we expect to release a version of the Block explorer this week, so more people can start joining the current Testnet. The Olympus Wallet will follow a week or so after. This will allow users to create wallets, send and receive POLIS and create/manage validators. These tools are important, as they will allow users to join the current Testnet and prepare the migration to the new chain.

Polis Pay.

We are happy to announce and bring you the new 8.7.0 release on the PolisPay app, this is the best version yet!

Our team worked very hard to introduce new features and fix a lot of problems. On this version you can expect the following new features, that we hope you will love!

  • Support for PolisPay Shift v2.0. So you can convert your crypto easily and securely, without sending your coins to an exchange.
  • Improvements to the PolisPay Gift Card experience, including faster loading times, better categories, and a brand new Favorites section, so you can spend less time finding the products you love.
  • Dynamic setting of Gas Limit for ERC20 token transactions. Up to this point we provided an approximation for this value, resulting in some transactions requesting users to have more ETH than what was needed for the transaction to be sent, even if it ended spending only the required amount, it could prevent some ERC20 transactions to be built correctly. Now we continue to provide a default value that guarantees a successful transaction, but a user can now use the slider to set the Gas Limit Value.
  • Some squashed bugs on UI and UX all over the application.
  • The long awaited PolisPay feature Shift has also been completed and is set to be released on Tuesday November 17th, 2020 at 11:00pm UTC.
