Outcomes and Minor Changes

Candidate Outcome

We successfully concluded our candidate for mainnet launch on April 6, 2021 and only a small need to fine tune the genesis file was required. Due to the hard work performed during the previous testnets by the community validators and the RND Inc team we are happy to announce that the chain operated perfectly and we are ready for launch on April 15, 2021!

Minor Changes

You can read more about the purpose of our one week candidate chain here however, to summarize, the main purpose of our candidate chain was to allow token holders to audit their wallet balance before launch.

Staking/delegating is a great way to earn REGEN tokens and an important part of maintaining and growing the value of your tokens. It’s also an important part of being a community member and supporting the network. Individuals operating a validator have to pay for infrastructure and the more secure and complex the infrastructure the more costs are associated with it. Delegating to validators by staking your REGEN tokens helps cover the infrastructure costs validators accrue, and will earn you a solid return on your REGEN tokens as well! …

Becoming a Regen validator is an important part of our ecosystem and we value anyone who attempts to do so. In order to do so the first step is to spin up a validator server by following our guides at https://docs.regen.network and becoming familiar with our github. Next you will want to self-delegate but you will also want to gain delegations from others.

Delegators typically have their own criteria for choosing which validator to delegate to, so when starting your journey to becoming a validator on the Regen Network you should ask yourself the following questions.

  • Are you running secure…

We are approximately two weeks from mainnet launch, happening April 15, 2021 and are finalizing the last steps. As of March 30, 2021 our candidate chain has launched and token holders now have the ability to check their wallet balances using the Keplr wallet extension!

Candidate Chain

Our candidate chain allows us to perform a final audit and, as mentioned, allows our token holders to check their wallet balances before mainnet launch. We have sent out an email to all token holders which describes the process of auditing their wallet balances and contains instructions for addressing any discrepancies. Token holders can also…

Keeping Community Members Safe from Hackers

TLDR Always verify the sender of an email! Always check the url before typing in your password! Use long complicated Passwords! Use a password manager and enable 2FA/MFA on all of your accounts! Be aware of who you are communicating with! Do not be lazy! Take security seriously!

Why Security?

The answer to this question may seem obvious but there are many users who do not seriously consider the importance of staying secure online. We are a Blockchain company which makes us one of the most targeted types of startups and as many of us…

Blockchaining on Regen Network, the safe way.

TLDR: Setup Keplr wallet using the instructions below or this article. Always store your mnemonic seed and never give out your private keys. Not your keys, not your crypto.

What’s a Cryptocurrency Wallet?

Similarly to our everyday life, in blockchain we store our currencies in wallets. Whether you are storing fungible or non-fungible tokens you will be storing them in one of the many types of wallets.

Custodial vs Non-Custodial Wallets

When creating wallets we have the option of using two different types, custodial or non-custodial. Custodial wallets are ones where we do not own the private keys and are operated…

PC: Cosmos

The Stargate release is live, and we are close to seeing this code live on the Cosmos Hub. The vision of the internet of blockchains is now a reality. Using Stargate, different sovereign blockchains are already transacting with one another in a multi-chain testnet.

As you may be aware, Regen Network took responsibility for maintaining the Cosmos SDK and stewarded the non-IBC parts of the Stargate release. Regen Network led the SDK architecture for the migration to Protobuf and worked closely with the larger community. …

Great Barrington, MA — Agtech start-up Regen Network announces the historic sale of soil carbon credits to Microsoft, one of the largest soil carbon credit issuances ever in Australia. These soil carbon credits, known as CarbonPlus Grassland credits, help Microsoft meet its climate goals and reward Australian land stewards for sequestering carbon and ecological stewardship of their ranch lands.

Regen Network’s CarbonPlus Grassland credits measure carbon sequestration and a suite of other co-benefits, such as ecosystem health, animal welfare, and soil health. As part of the carbon credit development, Regen Network has pioneered the monitoring and measuring of soil organic…

An excerpt from Kim Stanley Robinson’s new book

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson has been envisioning livable futures and the realities we need to navigate to arrive at them since the 1980s. In his latest book, The Ministry for the Future, Robinson explores what it would look like if there was an international body responsible for enforcing Paris Climate Accord commitments. One of the primary solutions that emerge is an international monetary regime called “carbon coin,” incentivizing carbon drawdown.

From our first whitepaper, published in October 2017, Regen Network has been co-creating an ecologically-backed currency for planetary regeneration. You can read more about case studies of our…
