Velas General Update — July 2022
Summer is almost at its equator and it knows that it’s time for us to show you the new Velas updates. Our team makes tremendous efforts and puts all its soul into the development of new features and functions of our platform. So let’s take a closer look at our updates!
UTORG Payment System Integration
Now our users can make their transactions via UTORG. Utorg is a FinTech company that offers а modern fiat to crypto exchange infrastructure to deliver а top-notch user experience. The company is EU-based and holds a license for providing a virtual currency service, in particular exchanging a virtual currency against a fiat currency, a virtual currency wallet service, and exchanging a virtual currency against a virtual currency.
Staking 2.0 improvement
Staking is essentially a lot like an interest-bearing account, in this case, a staking pool. You deposit your coins into the staking pool along with others. The smart contract distributes them to validators. When the validators complete their tasks they get rewards. Part of those rewards are then deposited into your account and the accounts of everyone who participated.
Staking 2.0 improvements:
- Sync mobile staking and web staking 2.0.
- Add descriptions on staking’s pre-loaders.
- Update staking npm to 1.0.3 && package.json in web-wallet.
- Change validators backend URL for mainnet.
Add USDV (Velero) to the list of default assets in Velas Network
Velero is a full-fledged fork of MakerDAO that works on Velas Blockchain, and the protocol behind the USDV stablecoin. Velero has improved the Maker`s auction system and has made it even more convenient and accessible.
