Devnet release with OTV
Release a version of IOTA 2.0 leveraging a first implementation of OTV as the consensus mechanism onto the Devnet.
A testnet with an incentivization model to promote faster development, bug fixing and ecosystem growth.
Improve Congestion Control
Move the scheduler component to the end of the data flow.
Improve Rate Setter
Estimate the time to be scheduled for a given message and improve UX tools around it.
Implement On-Tangle-Voting and FPCS
Replaces the combination of the FPC+FCoB consensus with one based on virtual votes on the Tangle (OTV) and a metastability breaking mechanism through FPCS.
Enable timestamp quality enforcement.
Allow nodes to recover from a faulty local perception by adjusting based on the approval weight.
Combine timestamp quality and deficit on the nodes to optimize what is scheduled.
Allow a node to locally prune old messages while keeping the necessary information required for the ledger state.
The first official testnet of the IOTA 2.0 network. The Pollen network is primarily a research testbed for validating concepts for IOTA 2.0.
