Blockpool Core has been successfully deployed

We're happy to announce that Blockpool Core network went live on mainnet on Sat 03-Aug and delegate rewards began on Sat 10-Aug!. This is the beginning of an exciting period of growth and development for both the company and our technology. The Blockpool Core chain provides greater functionality, is faster, more stable and more secure than its predecessor.


With a minor exception related to time sync'ing, the deployment was quite uneventful. As some of you know the wallet rollout wasn't quite as seamless, but as of the writing of this blog post the BPL Core Desktop for Windows and Mac have been published. The Linux version of the wallet is pending but will be released in the near future.

Blockpool Core Delegates

Our delegate pool has migrated to the new chain and we're happy to see a few new delegate names in the list. It is encouraging that that our seed nodes have been pushed off of the delegate list so quickly. If you have ever thought about becoming a bpl delegate, the process of installing and running a BPL Core node is easier than ever.

What's next?

We still have some loose ends to tie up from the deployment including release of the Linux wallet, SSL certificate installation on the explorer and a few others. We will be working through these in the coming days.


Much more interesting is the fact that side-chain and smart contract development has already started. This work is very exciting, as delegates will have the option to forge for sidechains in parallel with Blockpool Core-- receiving rewards for both chains. This work is expected to be complete in September, but a forthcoming litepaper will detail the concept before we release the update.


We hope you are as excited as we are to be part of the next stage in Blockpool's development. There is nothing but growth and development on the horizon!
