SX #23 - SX Network is alive!
Learn more about the launch of the SX Network blockchain and SportX migration
We’re excited to announce to the community that the SX Network blockchain is officially live!
It’s been an incredible journey from idea in June 2021, to live production-ready blockchain in March 2022. It's a huge testament to the quality of the SX Network development team, in particular team members Dan and Akshar along with our CTO Julian, that we were able to do so in less than 12 months! Special thanks as well to the Polygon team in supporting us and helping us launch the first-ever Polygon Edge blockchain!
SX Network is currently in the first phase of the deployment schedule. Both the chain and bridge are officially live, but the “training wheels” are still on. This means there are low caps on the bridge (max bridging transaction of 200 SX) while we continue to monitor it’s performance. The chain has been live for just under a week now with almost 200,000 blocks produced, and - as of now - no critical issues.
We’ll be doing a much larger public announcement and awareness push of SX Network to the rest of the crypto community in conjunction with the Polygon team in the upcoming weeks. However, we wanted to give the SX community a first glance at the new chain. We’ll be progressively removing the training wheels off both the chain and the bridge in the upcoming weeks, and we’re excited for our SX Network partners to deploy their applications!
We’ve also begun preparing the migration of SportX to its new and permanent home. SportX will continue to be on Polygon for at least the next few weeks throughout March and April as we complete this migration process. This process will be slow-rolled to ensure there are no disturbances to the community. We expect it to be a relatively frictionless experience. We will release more details on this as we get closer to the migration date.
Stay tuned for a raft of announcements in the coming weeks as we begin the official roll out of the SX Network ecosystem!
