CoinGape: Triffic, the Singapore-based Augmented Reality app that dispenses rewards in the form of GPS tokens, has entered a live environment for the first time. The official launch of the GPS token means users can start earning cryptocurrency simply by following their daily routine – walking the dog, shopping, cycling or going a run. The milestone follows a hard fork of Jelurida’s Ardor blockchain implemented on September 22.

IHold: Ardor has completed a successful hard fork of its mainnet, bringing Triffic App’s native token into a live environment for the first time. The Ardor blockchain, maintained by Jelurida, was scheduled to undergo a hard fork on September 22, with the protocol upgrade introducing a number of features. The most notable of these was the launch of Triffic’s GPS token on Ardor, ushering in a new era for augmented reality (AR)

CryptoDaily: The hype around the launch of platforms such as Polkadot, and soon Ethereum 2.0, demonstrates that the solution to scalability lies in a multichain architecture. Both platforms operate on a structure involving a central chain, with multiple “offshoot” chains processing transactions in parallel. However, it’s not a new idea. In January 2018, blockchain software company Jelurida launched Ardor as the first multichain platform.

Bitcoinist: It’s worth noting that the Polkadot mainnet is still on a critical development path, with several phases yet to come. The current phase has launched the Nominated Proof of Stake consensus model, with future iterations due to launch full governance and functionality for its central Relay chain. In contrast, the Ardor blockchain has been up and running since January 2018. The period since launch has allowed plenty of time for the project to develop out its mainnet, with the most recent upgrade rolling out improvements, including permissioned child chains and Ignis, the most popular child chain.

Crypto News Flash: The developer of the Ardor network, Lior Yaffe, believes that he has found a vulnerability in the upgrade that could further delay the release. In an interview, Yaffe explained how one of the most repeated concerns, the lack of security and centralization, could become a reality for Eth2.0. Yaffe is a participant in the latest public multi-client testnet for Ethereum 2.0, known as Medalla. While studying some situations that have occurred in the testnet, Yaffe came up with a scenario in which the network is attacked by an ETH whale.

Cointelegraph: Ardor runs on a parent and child chain structure, which offers improved throughput compared with a linear blockchain like Bitcoin or Ethereum. This structure can be compared to Ethereum 2.0’s sharding mechanism, where Ethereum’s Beacon Chain will have sharded chains operating as substructures in parallel with one another. However, Ardor launched with another critical feature built in that is often overlooked by blockchain core developers: Ardor child-chain operators can issue their own native tokens, which are compatible with the parent chain.
