- Enabling voting/staking for block producers.
Beyond their initial scope on its whitepaper, INSTAR worked on other projects appropriate for their platform in the ever-changing technological and business environment. These new strategies include
SECRET STATE DATA ORACLES & ATOMIC SWAPS
The feature has been in development for the past 18 months. According to INSTAR, it should be released by Q4. Secret State Data Oracles employs a primary use case among others. Through this feature, highly sensitive surveys will be conducted on the platform. Respondents will allow on the desired output to be conveyed to the surveyor. The technology will also be used for cross-blockchain transactions.
SURVEY YOUR OWN PANEL
This feature will utilize Insights Network’s encryption technology to collect a user’s response data. The user will exclusively be able to see the types of responses the user gives and the type of questions asked by the user.
Survey your own panel is free for the coming month. The platform urges its users to test it out. It can be found under “Create activity” on the INSTAR dashboard.
Insights Network is implementing new services that are likely to help it maintain its user base and even increase it. The latest features are practical and appropriate for their line of service.
