Cosmos SDK v46 Upgrade Complete

Pylonians, hello, how's it going? We're doing great over here, thank you for asking. We just pushed out Pylons v1.0, a major upgrade to SDK 46 (the very first chain to get here.) We've upgraded our apps, web portal, indexer and everything is looking great! We've got more testing to do before we put real money into the system but things are in a good place.

Did we mention that we're about to put real money on Pylons? The recent upgrade adds support for In-App Purchasing of Pylons Points, which allows artists to sell digital goods to users using the mobile payment systems they are used to. This is a first, a blockchain that can directly accept payments from mobile platforms. Yes, it's very cool.

This has been a huge effort from everyone involved, including the Pylons team and our two external teams, RNS Solutions and Notional Labs. We're all very excited to be at this stage.

Coming up next, we intend to fully release our publishing tool (putting together store collateral now), and do a major IAP drop as well. Then we will build the remaining pieces we need for mainnet (mainly details of the token incentive model) and get out there with mainnet-1 before you know it.

Thanks for being a part of this journey!
