We have finalized our development and are coming towards the end of beta & security testing for the Divi blockchain. We are just finalizing documentation and confirming all reward calculations. Between now and launch we will be cleaning up some of UX for the desktop wallet and making sure that the network is performant and stable.
Our most significant technological development to date, the launch of the Divi protocol Main net checks off an exciting milestone for Divi on the path to becoming the world’s first blockchain protocol optimized for ease of use. Divi’s protocol is set to launch the last week of September 2018.
With the necessary infrastructure built, Divi is expected to be the first true one-click cloud install for masternodes. This ensures all consumers will be able to participate in masternodes no matter their technical knowledge.
Here are some of the exciting things that will be available at launch.
MOCCI - Masternode One-Click Cloud Install
Divi's MOCCI (pronounced mo-chee) will be included with the desktop wallet at launch making us the first to have a truly one-click solution to masternode setup for the cloud. For now, we’re limited to Digital Ocean, but later we’ll add more options, including deployment to your own cloud host. This is a game changer for masternode fans as it will require no CLI or technical knowledge in order to use. Select your masternode layer and press deploy. That's it.
DVS - Dynamic Value Sporks
Divi will be the first crypto to implement sporks that can make dynamic changes to the blockchain. This allows for governance-based changes on the fly. We can change various things like min/max payment values, the minimum requirements to qualify for lottery block awards, and a few others things. DVS allows us to do this without forking the blockchain or even requiring a software upgrade.
As far as we know, Divi still is the only crypto to implement something like our Lottery Block system. Once per week, anyone with 10,000 DIVI or more in an actively staked wallet, or in a masternode can win. The amount will be 504,000 DIVI each time. 50% goes to a single big winner, and 5% to 10 other smaller winners.
Divi’s unique fee structure sets it apart from our predecessors. Bitcoin, Dash, and Pivx all base fees solely on the size (in bytes) of the transaction. The larger it is, the more space it takes up in the blockchain. Therefore they charge more. Divi has no miners to collect fees (our fees are burned), so we base our fees on the value of the transaction, then modify that based on the size.
Bottom line: Divi will be able to do micropayments, while more well-known crypto projects cannot. Penny or sub-penny transactions for song/video views, micro tips, and IOT (Internet of Things) are just some of the uses.
UTXO Bloat Control
Every staking wallet or masternode keeps a copy of every unspent transaction in RAM at all times, leading to UTXO bloat for many cryptocurrencies. This slows down processing time. Divi has implemented a system whereby when people stake their coins, UTXOs are automatically combined, without a fee. We anticipate this will help keep the UTXO set to a minimum and speed up transaction processing and have already witnessed this on a small scale during testing.
Look out for some more in-depth blogs and documentation surrounding the new technology that Divi has developed for launch as well as a fully updated roadmap, shortly after launch.
Exciting times are in store for Divi and everyone who has been a part of our mission from the very start. Be sure to stay tuned in for an exciting time in Divi history, and for an exact date and launch time.
The entire Divi team would like to thank our supporters who have stuck with us through all the ups and downs to this point, and we look forward to seeing you on the network!
