Ion Core integration/staging repository
We released version 3.0.3 as the first stable version of the major upgrade to v3. This release includes a large range of new features, stability improvements and updates, including many contributions from various developers, testers and authors. We thank everybody who contributed and helped to get this release in live status.
There were several considerations for selecting the current code base.
- Stop ongoing attacks
- Long term goal has been reached: our source code has been updated to be more closely in line with bitcoin's code base.
- Improved stability of the core
- Enhanced interface of the wallet
- More regular (and secure) difficulaty algorithm (Dark Gravitiy Wave)
- Good tooling support
Masternode core part (requires new configs for all current users)
Better transactions overview
New wallet design and layout
New tools and scripts

Stop ongoing attack
There were several issues which enabled several methods of attack. The current release deals with the attack properly.
Long term goals
We reached several goals. Instead of pursuing these goals using the old code base, we adopted a new one.
- Bring it to higher bitcoin source base
- Improve wallet performance
- New design
- Integrated blockexplorer
- Increased anonimity (Zerocoin)
We forked from PIVX and integrated ION's specific features into the PivX codebase.
By doing so, we connect to an enthusiastic and active community - leaving behind old Ion code that inherits from less actively developed and maintaned code. Our main sources are now derived from:
