Safex Blockchain: Marketplace Staging Network
Today we are publishing the binaries for Stagenet 1. In this deployment is the entire protocol for:
- Account Creation
- Editing Accounts
- Listing an Offer
- Editing the Offer
- Creating a Price Oracle
- Linking an Offer to a Price Oracle
- Leaving Feedback post Purchase
- Staking Tokens
- Unstaking Tokens and retrieving Revenue Share
The block height to activate the
advanced transaction features takes place on block 89400. The current block height on the stagenet is 87345, so in 2000 blocks the marketplace features activate on the blockchain. This is the best way to simulate what the mainnet transition will be like.
Each 720 blocks is approximately 1 day, so just less than 3 days from now, all marketplace functionality will start being accepted by the nodes on the blockchain, simulating a mainnet transition.
This gives time for node operators to update their software ahead of the feature changes taking place throughout the network.
To join in as a node operator the binaries are published on the github here:
The patch for enabling the marketplace functions here:
You will use the
--stagenet flag to join the network this time.
Later in the week we will publish the TWM Wallet for download to begin utilizing the world marketplace in the stagenet from the GUI.

This is a huge milestone, that things go well from here and that we have success proving our work on the way to mainnet launch.
