On February 25, 2019. the IOST team officially launched the IOST Mainnet. Since its launch, the IOST mainnet has grown rapidly in terms of DApps, Mainnet accounts, and mainnet transactions. Accordingly to IOSTABC, the IOST block height is close to 130Millions, with over 567 million transactions made. Staking ratio now stands over 31%
As the crucial underlying infrastructure of a public chain ecosystem, the mainnet’s performance determines its development. Since the mainnet launch, the IOST development team has maintained an innovative attitude and has updated and optimized its versions frequently, releasing Olympus v3.5.1 today.

IOST is committed to building a developer-friendly public chain platform. In the future, IOST will continue to innovate and continue to upgrade and optimize the mainnet, bringing more powerful underlying infrastructure support and good development experience to all mainnet ecosystem users.
From here, we would like to express our gratitude to the IOST development team and developers from all over the world for their unremitted efforts and also welcome developers to join our developer community.
