Tierion Network Update — January 19, 2018

Node registration will open on January 24th at 2:00pm PT (22:00 UTC). An additional one thousand nodes will be able to register. Rewards will increase to 1,250 TNT per reward period.

The registration process is simple. Node operators should upgrade to version 1.3.5. Upgrading takes a few seconds. Nodes will automatically attempt to register when upgraded.

IMPORTANT: Version 1.3.5 of the Chainpoint Node software will be released moments before registration opens. Nodes must upgrade to be eligible for rewards.

Chainpoint Client (beta)

The 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 shows developers how to use the client.

The first javascript client release is a beta. We encourage developers to test the client and submit any issues to the Chainpoint Client Github repo.
