Polis Core.

We are really close to finishing the wPolis Defi ERC20 token. We are now doing internal testing on swaps. There will be 3 releases:

  • First release will include a one-way bridge to ETH, this will be released as soon as tests are finished (ETA 1 week).
  • First update will include the bridge to change wPolis into polis. (ETA 2 weeks).
  • Third release will include a farming pool, which you will be able to farm your liquidity on the ethereum network for more POLIS. (ETA 3–4 weeks).

Polis Blockchain and SatoshiGoods organized an art challenge to celebrate our new partnership.

Thank you.

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.

Regarding the GUI wallet.

Unfortunately, the team has experienced some slowdowns with the Olympus GUI wallet.

The wallet will be released in a couple of weeks after the Public Testnet is available. To encourage users to start using the new chain, the team has also created an Olympus light wallet that will be released as a chrome extension wallet see screenshot below.

This wallet can easily be ported to mobile and desktop devices as well, so you can expect these versions to be made public shortly.

We have finished making the official Olympus explorer. In the screenshot below you can see the first version of the official Olympus Block Explorer, it will help Olympus testers track blocks, transactions, and accounts as well as providing some insightful chain information such as validator and chain statistics. This will be continuously updated through the life of the Public Testnet so that more features are added.

Polis Pay.

We are happy to announce and bring you the new 8.7.1 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.
