Akash Volume 27

May 1, 2022

The time has arrived, Akashians: After resolving initial consensus failure and inflation decay issues, Mainnet 3 is now live and producing blocks! ๐ŸŽ‰ mintscan.io/akash

The upgrade adds several long-awaited features, including:

  • Authorized Spend
  • Fractional uAKT for deployments
  • Automated Inflation Curve
  • Persistent Storage
  • 256 CPU per Service
  • 512 CPU Total in Deployment

In this weekโ€™s Community Call, Adam Wozney hosts Greg Osuri and Adam Boznanich to discuss the Cosmos SDK bug and inflation decay issues that led to chainโ€™s temporary halt - and the swift patches coordinated between validators and devs that enabled Mainnet 3โ€™s successful upgrade.

Among many new features, the devs attribute Akashโ€™s Persistent Storage and streamlined CLI process as two tools that will increase use cases and potentially lead to mass adoption.

The latest Twitter Space also features Akashlytics and Notional, ending with the teamโ€™s routine Q&A. Tune in below:
