Roadmap

With one of the most talented teams in the industry, PIVX has a
proven record of releasing first-of-its-kind innovations..
New SHIELD Protocol

Planning

Testing

Completed

PIVX has implemented SHIELD, its custom implementation of Sapling protocol using Groth16 zk-SNARKs zero-knowledge proofs. This new protocol improves financial user data protection, usability, and overall performance compared to our earlier solutions. SHIELD was our highest priority item for 2020; goal achieved. SHIELD in simple terms, will transcend PIVX user data protection to a whole new level! Users can directly securely transfer coins from one address to another without anyone else knowing the coins' source, how many coins were sent, nor which addresses are involved in sending and receiving.

Completed

In a future 5.x wallet release PIVX will introduce a brand-new SHIELD staking feature. It will allow an individual to stake shielded coins and receive the staking rewards directly to a shield address. This feature will protect users' data, uphold their financial data protection, and increase the shielded coins' percentage in the PIVX network, further strengthening the SHIELD protocol.
Deterministic Masternode Lists

Planning

Development

Testing

Completed

Implement custom versions of DIP002 and DIP003 to introduce multiple enhancements to the masternode network. These include blockchain-derived masternode lists, custom reward address, voting delegations, and more.
Staking Pool Operators

Planning

Development

arrow__right

Testing

arrow__right

Completed

It allows the creation of staking pools where users don’t need to find a block to get rewarded. The pool operator collects all the rewards, subtracts his fee, and then redistributes the remaining part across all stakers, percentually based on the amount of delegated coins. This prevents centralization which might happen once PIVX price goes up, and ensures further network decentralization, allowing the small stakers/investors to receive staking rewards on a daily basis to their mobile wallets for a daily spending, while their staking coins are being safely stored on a hardware of offline wallet.
P2P Networking Flow Optimizations

Planning

Development

arrow__right

Testing

arrow__right

Completed

Improved P2P network code for better interaction between peer nodes. Furthermore, change to the network encapsulation code by decoupling it from the validation layer, leading to much better mutex & race conditions management that reduces the network latency by 30%, and many other improvements. Simply put: This will mean a faster, more stable, and more reliable connection to other peers in the network.
Deprecated Code Cleanup

Planning

Development

arrow__right

Testing

arrow__right

Completed

Reduction of bloated code by removing unused, non-essential code such as the old accounting system, Zerocoin protocol, and ZLNP. Simply put: Cleaner code means better performance, less developer confusion, and improved future-proofing of wallet development.
Improved Tier Two Network Synchronization

Planning

Development

arrow__right

Testing

arrow__right

Completed

More stable, faster, less network bloat, reduced redundancy, and less resource consumption at the Tier Two masternode network layer.
Multi-signature Sporks

Planning

arrow__right

Development

arrow__right

Testing

arrow__right

Completed

Improve the security and decentralization of the sporks through the use of multiple signatories. Simply put: This will provide better protection of the network against potential internal attacks or mistakes.
In-Wallet Proposal Creation

Planning

Development

arrow__right

Testing

arrow__right

Completed

In-wallet proposals will add a more accessible and user-friendly interface in the Qt wallet to create PIVX budget proposals that the community can review and vote on. This will mean no more creating proposals through the use of complex and error-prone command lines.
Enhanced Governance Tab

Planning

Development

arrow__right

Testing

arrow__right

Completed

An enhanced governance tab will allow masternode owners to monitor live proposals and easily vote on them from within the QT wallet's graphic user interface. Users will no longer have to rely on masternode proposal websites or use the debug console/command terminal to vote.
