The first month of the new year, 2021, is over now. Last year, 2020, was an interesting year by any standard, but we worked hard. To summarize the achievements of the year, we wrote the following article. As there is quite a lot of text (!), you can find the full article here for the SORAMITSU updates from 2020:

You may have even asked yourself (or one of the chat admins) how you can contribute to SORA. If so, the SORA Ambassador Programme is for you.

TL;DR

  • VAL is a new token used to reward SORA network validators that secure the network, created by community governance; all contracts and executable code were released in a disabled form and could not be used until activation by a community member (by insertion of cryptographic proof of the referendum); now it is fully activated
  • VAL fully diluted supply will be 100,000,000. Only 33,900,000 VAL are currently circulating and the supply is capped until SORA v2 network launch
  • The VAL token can be found here on Etherscan: https://etherscan.io/token/0xe88f8313e61a97cec1871ee37fbbe2a8bf3ed1e4

TL;DR

  • Multi-body sortition allows for collusion- and censorship-resistant governance
  • Unlike many other blockchain networks and societies that use token voting, SORA will utilize multi-body sortition in order to govern the SORA blockchain network and use of the SORA funds in a decentralized way
  • In the SORA Parliament, no single body or committee can both propose and decide something; clear separation of powers allows for careful review and avoids self-selection

Ordo Ab Chao

TL;DR

  • By the end of mid November, v1 XOR on the SORA v1 mainnet will be converted to VAL
  • The conversion factor between v1 XOR and VAL is 0.0628651118561449
