BlockchainBrad catchups up with Richard Yan, COO of VITE for an EXCLUSIVE update. As a ‘Next Gen. High-performance Decentralized Application Platform’, there are some major developements that have happened lately. Think TestNet, Supernodes, Vite Store, Vite Pay & more! With 36 people in the Vite team now: 32 in the Beijing office, and 4 in the Silicon Valley office, they are growing healthily!
Vite Labs Limited has decided to migrate all uncirculated VITE tokens onto the TestNet, thereby destroying this subset of tokens currently in ERC20 form. On October 15, the VITE team completed unlocking all investor-owned ERC20 VITE tokens, resulting in current circulation at 433,967,577.9767 VITE, or 43.4% of total VITE tokens issued. The remaining 56.6% of the tokens are either held by the Vite project team, or reserved for marketing/airdrop/ecosystem-building (further explanation below). This 56.6% of ERC20 VITE tokens will be destroyed on October 24th, and will be completely migrated to Vite TestNet 0.1. This means that when TestNet 0.1 launches in November, this destroyed amount of ERC20 tokens will be created in the TestNet (on a 1:1 basis). So, it’s a token ‘burn-switch’ 1:1
Super Node Incentive Plan
In the TestNet, the VITE tokens originally reserved for airdrop & marketing (which has been migrated from ERC20 to TestNet per a previous article), will be used to reward the miner. After the MainNet is launched, miners will be rewarded through additional issuance of tokens (aka inflation).
In TestNet, all mining rewards obtained by official super nodes will be distributed to the community. Recipients of the rewards include voters and users that run full nodes.
If you have VITE tokens in our TestNet, you will receive rewards every day by voting for any of the OFFICIAL SUPER NODES. The rewarded amount depends on the total number of voters. Note that more voters means less income for each voter. Therefore, vote early (fewer voters then) to earn higher rewards!
Features of the tech:
The asynchronous design in Vite mainly includes three aspects:
Asynchronous design of requests and responses
Asynchronous design of transaction writing and confirmation
Asynchronous design of communication among smart contracts
The multi-layered consensus mechanism ensures that the ledger is written quickly and the Snapshot Chain guarantees the immutability of the ledger. Local consensus is achieved as soon as the request and response blocks are produced and respectively written into the ledger, while global consensus is achieved after the ledger status is snapshot and packed in a snapshot block by a super node.
