Rebrand

To accompany the Antara Framework, Komodo has prepared the launch of a complete rebrand that includes, the change of its website, a new visual identity, new whitepaper and other new features.

Notary Nodes

All computers in the Komodo dPoW network must validate the transactions that take place before they are executed. In addition to this validation, the Notary Nodes create a backup copy of this chain in the ledger of a different blockchain.

This network is composed of 64 servers that are responsible for carrying out these processes, and are called Notary Nodes.

These Notary Nodes are elected annually by a vote in which KMD holders can participate, where each KMD in possession is equivalent to 1 vote.

On July 15, 2019, the third season has begun. Where the elected Notary Nodes begin their process of notarization.

In addition to these changes that are to come, recently the Komodo platform has launched a mobile application to perform atomic exchanges called Atomic DEX.

Thanks to this application available for Android, users can make atomic exchanges (Exchange from one cryptocurrency to another without the need of third parties) from their phones.
