Stacks 2.0 Launch Recap
Soon after ushering in the new year, the Stacks Foundation, Hiro PBC (formerly Blockstack PBC), and the Stacks community celebrated a major milestone on January 14th, 2021: The Stacks 2.0 Mainnet Launch.
We’re excited to announce the launch of Stacks Grants using Grant.io! We've upgraded our grants workflow from GitHub to offer a funding experience that aligns with our values of community access, transparency, and ownership.
The Stacks 2.0 mainnet is live! This is a huge milestone for the Stacks ecosystem. It brings more blockchain functionality through Clarity smart contracts, an upgraded consensus mechanism through Stacking that rewards STX holders, and more community ownership of the blockchain, consensus, and the future of the protocol.
With the launch of Stacks 2.0, there are a number of changes that may impact existing apps built on the Stacks Blockchain. Hiro PBC's Product Lead Mark Hendrickson shares more in this forum post on what to look at with the new changes.
