ChainX network successfully completed Bitcoin Taproot upgrade

ChainX, as the layer 2 network of Bitcoin, has taken the lead in realizing the Bitcoin Taproot upgrade.

Taproot = MAST + Schnorr signature algorithm. Taproot is a huge improvement for Bitcoin custody businesses that require multi-signature. The first is security. Taproot makes a multi-signature look like an ordinary single-signature, thus greatly improving the privacy. Secondly, when the number of people participating in multi-signature is relatively large, the off-chain aggregation of Taproot private key fragments saves users a considerable amount of gas costs.

ChainX Bitcoin Custodians successfully re-elected

After the completion of the Bitcoin Taproot upgrade, the ChainX main network successfully carried out the change of the custodians.

Now the ChainX network custodians do not have to execute code to run the script when performing multi-signature, they initiate the transaction in ComingChat and complete the signature. Since the ComingChat encryption group is designed with Signal, an end-to-end encryption protocol, the security of user assets is further guaranteed.

Users should use wallets that support Taproot type addresses, such as ComingChat, when depositing bitcoin across the chain to the ChainX network.

Added ways for PCX and XBTC to earn profits

Previously, PCX holders could only vote for validators on the ChainX Wallet for staking mining to gain income,and the APR is around 30%. Now, PCX holders can choose to stake PCX in SoSwap’s Pools, or participate in SoSwap liquidity mining, with a yield of over 100%.

Now, in addition to mining PCX, XBTC can also be used to participate in SoSwap liquidity mining to obtain high returns.

ChainX announces strategic partnership with Encentive

ChainX announced the official cooperation with Encentive. The cooperation will revolve around community promotion, token staking, etc. ChainX users will be able to obtain corresponding Encentive tokens as income by staking PCX.

ChainX official website update

SoSwap liquidity mining has been launched. Users can stake the liquidity of designated trading pairs on SoSwap to earn SoSwap’s platform currency $SO. The output of SO is 72 per day, and the output is halved every four years. It is expected that users will be able to use SoSwap on their mobile phones in May.
