Six weeks have passed since the node strategy went live on the testnet and thus far, a total of 57 nodes are currently participating with 52 nodes that have participated in block generation. These nodes are expected to participate in sharing test incentives of at least 200,000 NAS.
Progress from last week:
PoD governance mechanism development continues
The smart contract and the node platform have been developed. The related collaborative development of the community collaboration platform Go.nebulas is underway. And we are also dealing with transferring data between the two platforms, between on-chain and off-chain. All data related to governance voting will be on-chain.
PoD consensus mechanism testing
Test the stability.
Plan for next week:
PoD governance mechanism testing
The governance mechanism will first complete joint debugging and start internal testing. After the internal testing is completed, the governance mechanism will be on testnet for further testing.
PoD governance voting testing on testnet is coming soon
the top 51 consensus nodes where the largest number of block generators can participate in the PoD governance voting test. The proposals to vote currently include:
A. Marks Proposal: POD Block Generation Penalties: Because this proposal is about PoD penalties, so it’s better to voting before the mainnet launched.
B. Join the technical committee(TBA): More details are coming soon. Closely related to community collaboration platforms and governance.
C.Nebulas Awareness Development & Content Creation Plan
More about PoD governance mechanism please read Node Strategy: Governance Mechanism. And details about the first PoD governance voting will be announced next week.

PoD node AMA
InfStones, BTCU, Allnoodes, StackOfStake, MRH2 and other nodes performed Chinese online AMA on WeChat group on February 19. Everyone is interested in the proof-of-devotion mechanism (PoD) combining block generation and governance. They are full of expectations for decentralized community collaboration, and also introduced the benefits of their nodes. For a text summary, please refer to 铁头群 [PoD node debut roundtable meeting shorthand] (https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/xF4T5MOq_FFVPLIZROTQ2w) (in Chinese).
There will be an English Online AMA in the English Telegram group on Friday, February 21. Allnodes, StackOfStake, Everstake, InfStones, BTCU, etc. will communicate in English. Everyone is welcome to participate.
