We are thrilled to announce the successful deployment of Horizon Protocol V2 onto the BNB Chain mainnet! This marks a significant milestone in our journey, and we appreciate your unwavering support.

Deployment Recap:

The deployment process took approximately 14 hours, triple the initially estimated time, primarily due to technical issues faced by our multisig provider, safe.global, at the onset of the deployment. Despite experiencing frontend delays for sign transactions, we are pleased to report a successful deployment with no data loss or impact, except for the extended timeframe.

Ongoing Optimization Post-Deployment:

Frontend Data:

We are currently addressing issues with subgraphs, which require time to sync up data from April 2021 to the present. This results in missing data on the website. The historical data will gradually appear on the frontend over the next few days.

Transaction Fee:

Acknowledging concerns about gas issues, we are actively working on a solution. The current gas-intensive functions during Mint + Burn functions will be moved off-chain, significantly reducing transaction gas costs for users. Our dedicated team is working on implementing these changes promptly.

Below is a summary of what’s new for the deployment:

New features:
