July 15, 2019 – Nano, a leading cryptocurrency focused on making digital payments simple and intuitive for everyone, has this week welcomed the release of its Solidus update. Solidus represents a notable milestone in making the Nano network stronger, easier to integrate and more resistant to bad actors, building on the success of the preceding Dolphin release that brought average transaction time to below 1 second.
“The features included in Solidus are a culmination of substantial groundwork invested into previous node releases and rigorous testing on the beta network,” said Nano creator, Colin LeMahieu. “Development of a more robust node that is more easily integrated was the priority with this release and we have worked closely with services to provide a much better experience”
The new release brings immutability to confirmed transactions while offering easier methods to validate confirmation of transactions, via the addition of Confirmation Height.
A new TCP overlay has also been introduced to further increase the precision and efficiency of network communication and dynamic proof-of-work has been implemented to help reduce the impact of spam on the network.
The release also represents the final stage of the transition from Raiblocks to Nano naming systems, with the default address now being provided with nano_ prefixes.
