The Four Stages of Mainnet

(September, 2022) In our mission to build the fabric of the new world, we are getting closer to our biggest milestone to-date, fully launching mainnet.

Beyond Protocol enables IoT devices to connect securely and transact on a decentralized blockchain network utilizing the battle-tested Tendermint PoS consensus. Mainnet will enable billions of IoT devices access to an ecosystem of decentralized applications, new monetization models, and secure transactions.

First stage

Mercury provides access to the Alphanet by introducing a new Beyond Protocol SDK. The SDK enables users and microcontrollers to generate public/private key pairs, associate wallets, and store transactions and data to Alphanet. Developers get access to the SDK and documentation to get familiar with basic client interactions.

Second stage

Venus introduces master nodes and advanced transactions. Users receive documentation and access to connect their own master nodes which can participate in PoS network transactions. Master nodes are responsible for proposing new blocks and have voting power in the consensus proportional to the stake.

Venus provides an update to the client SDK to enable value-based transactions for dedicated actions including token transfers, enabling IoT monetization. Step-by-step examples on how to build the foundation for monetization models is provided, opening up endless possibilities.

Third stage

The Mars release focuses on the rollout of the $BP native token wallet and the $BP staking program. It opens up staking to users who want to participate running master nodes and stake $BP in the PoS consensus. A native token wallet is introduced to access $BP tokens on Alphanet, and, once the transition is complete, on the fully launched Mainnet.

Fourth stage

With Jupiter, we complete the transition from our ERC-20 token to the native $BP token across the entire ecosystem. Once the transition is complete, the $BP mainnet officially will be launched fully and ready to reshape the IoT industry.
