The downward movement reversed most of MATIC’s 38% rally last week.

Matic enters the first phase of the main network deployment

In the first step of the deployment, the delegated DPoS network (Proof of Participation Network) works with a restricted group of validators.

Currently, The Matic Foundation has implemented all seven operating nodes in the network. “However, any rewards received from the Foundation nodes will return to the task force.”

Ether (ETH) and ERC-20 tokens are also interoperable between Matic Network and Ethereum chains.

DApp partner to deploy nodes later

Before proceeding to the second phase of deploying the core network, Matic wants to ensure that DApp can be deployed and multiple rounds of security patches can be performed.

The assigned DApp nodes are configured to join the network in stacks of five to ten starting this week.

“The selected validator nodes that worked closely with the Matic team, including professional validators and DApp frameworks, were shortlisted and will shortly be integrated into the core network.”

Once the network DApps are activated and users are registered, the Matic Foundation nodes are shut down and the network is again delegated to the public reviewers who operate the Matic nodes afterwards.
