Stakenet roadmap

2018 2019

20%

In 2019 we are dividing our roadmap into two stages:

MERLIN - focuses on the software level. Working on Lightning Network, DEX technologies, cross-chain interoperability, and cross-chain staking.

VIPER - focuses on the hardware level. It will feature a product line of custom and unique XSN powered hardware devices, like XSN Viper, which is a lightning router and hardware wallet.

Q1

  • XSN Multi-Currency Light Wallet launch [M]

    The official release of the XSN Multi-Currency Light Wallet, allowing users to send, receive, and exchange funds over Lightning Network, without needing to download full blockchains.

    Show more

    Show less

    By allowing our network to hold databases and run full nodes of multiple chains, we will be able to securely send, receive, and confirm transactions on separate chains from our own. These third-party chains will be held on our second layer, which will communicate with first layer nodes, allowing our users to hold multiple coins in one place – the XSN Multi-Currency Light Wallet.

    Show more

    Show less

    Stakenet will create crypto’s first truly decentralized cryptocurrency exchange, run entirely by Masternodes. By doing so, Stakenet dx cannot be shut down by any third party, which makes it so unique. Stakenet dx will focus on usability, enabling even people who are not familiar with cryptocurrencies to trustlessly perform cryptocurrency swaps without the need of dealing with complicated wallets, or any additional technical requirements. Furthermore, Stakenet dx is a Lightning DEX, it will work by utilizing Lightning Swaps, not common on-chain Atomic Swaps as most other DEX do. Lightning Swaps are instant, practically fee-less, and infinitely scalable - achieving the user experience of a centralized exchange is not out of reach. This is something no other DEX out there can say currently.

  • Confidential Transactions: MimbleWimble [M]

    Confidential Transactions based on the MimbleWimble protocol will allow Stakenet users to have complete control over their privacy.

    Show more

    Show less

    MimbleWimble is a new on-chain privacy feature that will allow users to decide which information is revealed on the blockchain. Unlike normal transactions, MimbleWimble transcations do not need to be fully viewable on the blockchain. As a result, less information is disclosed, which increases the privacy and keeps the block size small. Since it is still on early versions, we will be looking to apply it late 2019 or early 2020, and will replace PrivateSend, our current on-chain privacy feature.
