PIVX development update: With positive testnet testing results, PIVX core wallet v3.3.0 has now been scheduled for release shortly after the upcoming superblock #1857600 that's expected to occur on June 16th.
This major release will be a mandatory update for all users running the core wallet and will enable efficient spending of v2 zPIV once the 7 day network enforcement kicks in. So please be prepared to upgrade upon its release.
We are excited to announce the official launch of the PIVX Foundation, our flagship R&D Initiative, at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City during the Blockchain for Impact Summit held on June 4th 2019.
As a registered charity, the PIVX foundation will act as an extension of the PIVX community focused on providing additional financial, human, and social capital for the project.
We are very excited to announce that PIVX is listed at South Africa's new Bittrex-backed exchange, VALR trading platform.
VALR provides a digital asset platform that allows its customers to buy, sell, store and transfer cryptocurrencies seamlessly and securely, bridging the gap between our traditional fiat financial system and the new world of cryptocurrencies.

PIVX network has just gone past 75% (now at 81%) of its last 10800 blocks being version 5 so the BIP 65 soft fork has now been activated and enforced on the PIVX blockchain!
This means the PIVX network can now make use of CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY (CLTV) opcode, that allows the support of Atomic Cross Chain Transfer, also known as Atomic Swaps.
