Particl is a crypto based privacy platform, secured by high-level privacy technology, that mainly being RINGCT, on the stable bitcoin codebase. It is also building its first decentralized application, a decentralized marketplace, and this is the current focus of the development team.We are all looking forward to the upcoming hardfork that will release governance and RINGCT on mainnet. The final thing, governance is at its final development stage. Both of these will mean the marketplace can move on from its alpha testnet stage. The hardware cold staking release is out with a tutorial available. Staking pools are on the horizon. The team is confident in its proof of stake consensus system. And we have some ideas about the future funding round but that is still to be discussed.
