Introducing XPR Network

We’re excited to introduce the launch of the XPR Network, marking the transition from Proton blockchain. This rebranding comes with a new look and a revamped website, reflecting our dedication to reshape the blockchain landscape. Our mission revolves around making blockchain accessible for everyone and businesses. The XPR Network stands out for its instant transactions, zero gas fees, and on-chain identity verification. To advance further and accommodate financial institutions, we’re adopting the ISO 20022 standard for financial messaging. This transformation signifies a new phase focused on growth, positivity, and recognition of our technical advancements.

Who and what is the XPR Consortium?

The consortium is made up of a mix of well-respected block producers, along with Metallicus, that acts as a point of contact for subjective matters for the XPR blockchain such as setting block producer standards, implementing a workers proposal system, liaison for governance issues, working with core developers for protocol upgrades, and more. The consortium is currently made up of Cryptolions, GenerEOS, EOS Amsterdam, Protonnz, Alvosec, and Metallicus.

Block Producers (BPs)

The XPR Network Consortium members and Block Producers are actively improving their infrastructure for smoother operations. Currently, three new BPs—dankbp, xprlabs, and artwebin—are being tested on the network and getting ready to join the mainnet soon. Ensuring network stability, non-functioning BPs have been removed to make operations more reliable.

The consortium is also inviting new BPs to join the network soon, further strengthening its foundation.
