Have Your Say in our Latest Governance Proposal
We’re excited to let you know that our latest governance proposal is now open for voting.
Sezame Wallet has developed a new AVT Wallet, which will be launching soon, allowing AVT holders to stake and withdraw staked AVT more easily and autonomously.
With the wallet almost complete – Sezame is just finalising small details within the app, and we hope to announce the launch imminently – this governance proposal will allow members of the community who participated in the previous staking program to decide whether Sezame Wallet will be granted 10,000 AVT for developing, launching and maintaining the AVT wallet.
The governance proposal opened on 24 May for voting by those who participated in the previous staking program on gov.aventus.io and will run for two weeks, to 7 June.
Out With The Old, In With The New: Why Layer 2s Are The Future Of Blockchain
Designed to play well with layer 1 blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum, but with faster and cheaper transactions, layer 2 blockchain solutions give you all of the benefits of the legacy blockchains, but upgraded.
Aventus CEO Alan Vey published a thought piece on our blog last week around why layer 2 solutions are the future of blockchain – read it here.
Staking And Locking With The New Aventus Staking Program
In response to community demand, and as part of our mission to evolve Aventus into a fully decentralised network, giving our community a self custody solution to holding Aventus-based assets, participating in staking and voting on governance proposals is one of our top priorities.
Our new staking program will be launching soon, which will give AVT holders the ability to stake and withdraw staked AVT more quickly and easily, as well as earn rewards based on the transaction fees validators earn.
In this deep dive, we have explored the locking feature of the new staking program – what it is, why it exists, and benefits for the network and the community. Learn more here.
