In a notable development, the award-winning Massa blockchain, boasting a robust community of 150,000 members, numerous nodes worldwide, and a distinctive consensus technology, has officially launched with groundbreaking features. These include Autonomous Smart Contracts, aiming to revolutionize decentralization and resilience in the blockchain space.
Massa’s Vision for Decentralized Autonomy:
Massa envisions a future where applications can be deployed on thousands of computers globally, operating autonomously without dependence on external infrastructure. The objective is to ensure perpetual functionality, resilience against censorship, and resistance to hacking attempts.
Mainnet Bootstrap Success and High Throughput:
Following a successful mainnet bootstrap on January 15th, 2024, Massa’s high-throughput Layer 1 (L1) blockchain has settled millions of blocks and close to 100,000 transactions. The platform’s strategy for ecosystem development and liquidity buildup is built upon this robust foundation.
Formation of Massa Foundation in Switzerland:
To oversee the Massa ecosystem, coordinate incentive programs, and drive community initiatives, the Massa Foundation has been established in Switzerland. The foundation is committed to providing the community with a significant voice in decision-making through open forums, where token holders can deliberate on proposals ranging from network parameter changes to grants. By 2024, community members are expected to be integrated into the foundation’s board.
Foundation’s Commitment to Community Engagement:
In its commitment to community involvement, the foundation plans various events, including the Massa Community Conference, to foster community cohesion. Additionally, the Foundation is allocating 2% of the MAS supply in 2024 as grants for projects aligned with the ecosystem’s ideals and goals.
Community and Public Sales Launch:
Starting from January 30th on Republic, community and public sales will last for two weeks, with potential future launchpad and CEX/DEX listings. Token holders can engage in the liquidity incentives program or run light nodes on personal computers to earn proof-of-stake block rewards.
Liquidity Incentives Program:
The Massa Foundation has earmarked 1.7% of the MAS supply for distribution in the next six months through a liquidity incentives program. The program will unfold gradually, beginning with incentivizing users to bridge tokens towards Massa dapps by offering additional native yields on liquidity provider (LP) tokens. This strategy aims to boost Total Value Locked (TVL), enhance market liquidity, and foster the financial ecosystem in Massa.
Upcoming Technical Deployments:
On the technical front, Massa has plans for deploying the Massa Domain Name System and the Decentralized Web feature in 2024. This innovation will allow website front-ends to be hosted and accessed on-chain, eliminating the need for centralized domain names and web hosting servers.
Cross-Chain Integration and EVM Compatibility:
Massa is poised for cross-chain integration through partnerships, such as with Umbrella Oracles and Hyperlane. Additionally, the team is targeting Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatibility and account abstraction to broaden Massa’s integration with existing ecosystems.
Advancements in Autonomous Smart Contracts:
Massa’s flagship technology, Autonomous Smart Contracts, is set to undergo refinements. This will enable dynamic self-evolving NFTs, self-rebalancing liquidity pools, and a range of new on-chain applications, eliminating the reliance on external automation providers like Gelato or Chainlink Automation.
