Sentinel-Turing-2 — Announcement & extension of the Node Incentivization Program until Mainnet

Current State of Development

Over the last few months there has been a significant amount of progress both on the protocol and the networking side. Development focus areas include:

  1. Networking protocols — OpenVPN, WireGuard and IKEv2
  2. Desktop Client v2 with support for OpenVPN & WireGuard
  3. iOS Application with ETH with support for IKEv2
  4. Private Network functionality (Integration with Spider)

Continuing the Node Incentivization Program

Incentivization for the 5th month of the Node Incentivization Program has been distributed at this time with over 900K SENT to eligible node hosts who need to cover their hosting costs.

Output of Sentinel-Turing-1

Since the release of Sentinel-Turing-1, a total of 1.6M blocks (at the time of writing) have been generated with 39 validators participating within the network. The Sentinel-Turing-1 underwent a coordinated attack (by the Validators of the network and the core team), which resulted in the halt of the chain, as expected.

Announcing the release of Sentinel’s Turing-2

While Sentinel-Turing-1 focused on a version of governance and consensus that was quite similar to the Cosmos Network, Turing-2 will also feature a version that’s similar, but the key difference would be in the way transactions are handled.

Media & Partnerships

We support anyone that wants to accept SENT as a payment method, run the Sentinel Private Net for their organization or community or develop tooling for the Sentinel Network. Please feel free to reach out to us on Twitter in case of any outreach/partnership inquiries.

About Sentinel Network

Sentinel Network is a network layer that enables a true p2p and decentralized applications and resources marketplace. Sentinel enables anyone to create Public and Private networks that provide access to both free and incentivized, and also payment method agnostic (pre-paid/escrow/post-paid) services (dApps) & distributed resources, enabling its clients to become both producers and consumers in the network.

Interoperable Network Layer for bandwidth sharing and incentivization. Developed the Sentinel dVPN on the Sentinel Network — More about us, https://sentinel.co
