Conflux Network, the only state endorsed public, permissionless blockchain project in China, has announced the launch of Tethys, the Conflux mainnet.

The launch of Tethys – the final phase – means that applications longer need to worry about migration during updates and any change to the Conflux ledger state is now permanent. Sponsor features are now online to support developers and users that will make smart contract transaction costs nearly free. Beginning immediately, all transactions in Tethys will be immutable records on the blockchain and future updates will be enabled only via hard forks upon the community consensus.
Conflux Network is an open-source, layer-1 blockchain protocol delivering heightened scalability, security, and extensibility for the next generation of open commerce, decentralized applications, financial services, and Web 3.0.

Overseen by a global team of world-class engineers and innovative computer scientists, Conflux is led by Turing Award recipient Dr. Andrew Yao. Driving entrepreneurship and innovation, Conflux elevates startups and organizations across industries and continents to generate decentralized marketplaces and digital assets for meaningful business and social impact.
