Tierion Network Update — December 15th

Tierion Network Update — December 15th

Additional Registered Nodes

On December 12th at 2:00pm PT (22:00 UTC) an additional 1,000 nodes joined the Tierion network. This brings the total number of publicly registered nodes to 3,000. Depending on the results of testing, it may be possible to add additional registered nodes during the final week of December.

Our team is working on changes that will allow nodes to join the network at any time. More information will be available in the coming weeks.

We’d like to thank everyone running a Chainpoint Node and building applications using the new Chainpoint Client. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Latest Release

Node operators should upgrade to version 1.3.3. Upgrading takes a few seconds. Nodes will automatically attempt to register when upgraded.

Chainpoint Client (beta)

The new Chainpoint Client makes it easy to create software that uses Chainpoint. This javascript client can be used in both Browser and Node.js based Javascript applications using callback functions, Promises (using .then.catch), or Promises (using async/await) functional styles.

We’ve created a live code notebook on Runkit that demonstrates how to use the Chainpoint client.

We encourage developers to test the client and submit any issues to the Chainpoint Client Github repo.
