Gamified Proof of Stake (GPoS) code for mainnet has been released for review by Peerplays Witnesses. A hardfork date has been set for mid-February, where GPoS will await consensus acceptance by the Peerplays blockchain.
From that time, PPY token holders will have a 30 day grace period to start participating in GPoS before the protocol goes live. Participation is required by PPY token holders in order to receive rewards from the blockchain.
This is an extremely exciting development in the blockchain world, a true evolution, that will introduce a new way for consensus to be achieved and create a more efficient and secure open, public decentralized blockchain.
