We are happy to update that the PIVX network has gone past 75% (now at 81%) of our last 10800 blocks being version 5 so the BIP 65 soft fork has now been activated and enforced on the PIVX blockchain! This means that the PIVX network now can make use of CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY (CLTV) opcode, that allows the support of Atomic Cross Chain Transfer, also known as Atomic Swaps. Github PR: github.com/PIVX-Project/PIVX/pull/705 This is another big step forward for PIVX in its pursuit of supporting the technologies that is required by the industry in addition to improving and developing new cryptocurrency technologies. What is also impressive is that this just happened within just five days of 3.2.0 core wallet release! So we would like to thank everyone who upgraded their wallet so quickly. If you have not yet upgraded, we recommend you to upgrade to 3.2.0 asap before we hit 95%, as we will start rejecting version 4 blocks generated by older wallet version at that time. Latest wallet is available at pivx.org/

We are super excited to announce the world's first Bulletproofs implemented Zerocoin protocol that has just been made public in PIVX github. It has been developed by the PIVX core development team with cryptography work from Mary Maller where the signature of knowledge algorithm has been changed drastically. This change results in significant reductions of Zerocoin transaction size, blockchain growth rate and improved verification time. We welcome all auditors to review the code and will also follow up to ensure it gets third party audits. Once the core wallet version 3.2 is released, this implementation can be tested on our testnet. Source code: github.com/PIVX-Project/PIVX/tree/Bulletproofs
We are very proud to say that PIVX was the very first cryptocurrency to implement Privacy Preserving Proof of Stake algorithm (zPoS) on its mainnet back in 05/2018 ensuring complete privacy during staking.

The first of its kind. Also, the successful staker will receive their block reward in the form of zerocoins that do not have any associated address nor traceable history for 100% fungibility. Totally unique. For more information, please visit pivx.org/

This accounts for more than 22% of the PIVX total supply and represents the largest anonymous Zerocoin set of all crypto currencies in the market today.
