Latest Updates

Radix Joins idOS Consortium: Radix is joining the idOS Consortium, a decentralized identity network designed for storing and managing access to decentralized identities. Already serving thousands of verified users, the idOS network was created collaboratively by several infrastructure partners and leading ecosystems, including Fractal ID, NEAR, Gnosis, Aleph Zero, Kwil, and others.  

SuperStaking $14M Liquidity Initiative: SuperStaking is a $14 million liquidity initiative designed to significantly boost the liquidity of liquid restaked tokens on the Radix Network. By participating in this campaign, users who deposit and lock their Liquid Stake Units (LSUs) can effectively double their staking rewards for a 6-month lock period. With the first round on CaviarNine fully subscribed, the second round will soon open on Ociswap. 

Radix Foundry Participants: Surge and Trove: The first two participant projects of the Radix Foundry program have been announced: Surge, set to be the first perpetual DEX on Radix, and Trove, an NFT marketplace developing an advanced trading platform for NFTs. 

Additional Updates

Milestone and Fundraising Rewards: Up to $150K: The Milestone Rewards initiative, launched in February 2024 as part of the $1M ecosystem fund, celebrates and rewards the efforts of teams building on Radix and surpassing milestones. This fund has since been expanded to $10M in capital, ready to be deployed to support the growth of the Radix Ecosystem. The fund has distributed over $90,000 to seven Radix projects for impressive TVL growth and high trading volume milestones. 

Building an NFT Warehouse with Scrypto: Scryptonight recently won the “Impress the Team” prize of $1500 in XRD for their Escrow Pool blueprint. This blueprint allows users to instantiate a component they control, deposit resources, and mint “allowance” NFTs to distribute. These allowance NFTs can be handed out to anyone, allowing them to redeem them to withdraw an allowable amount of resources determined by the user. 

The Bottlenose Protocol Update is Live: Key updates include API enhancements for reading component owner roles from Scrypto, and new substates exposing current protocol parameters for greater transparency. The AccessController now features a recovery fee vault, eliminating the need for third-party fee locking during recovery. Additionally, the AccountLocker Native blueprint simplifies account deposit handling. Improvements have also been made to the Account and TransactionProcessor native blueprints, along with multiple optimizations to the Radix Engine. 

Radix Wallet 1.6.0 Update: Radix Wallet v1.6.0 is now available for iOS and Android. It features major updates to the backup system and Radix Connector extension allowing for multiple devices being connected to one PC. For compatibility, update your Radix Connector to v1.4.0.
