The project was quite busy in the last couple of weeks. They signed up for several major blockchain related events in order to spread the good world about Pivx and cryptocurrency in general. After presenting their ideas on Blockcrypto (Sept 25th, Sau Paulo, Brazil), Pivx lined up several new appearances which will include:
- Malta Blockchain (Nov 1-3, Malta)
- Web Summit (Nov 5-7th, Lisbon)
- Provenance Summit (Seoul, Korea November 20th)
Prior to that, a smaller, more community minded meet-up has been scheduled to take place in Bogota, Colombia from October 17th-18th. Much later, in February of 2019, Pivx has a special event scheduled for its luckiest, most loyal fans. The event will be the so called Pivx Cruise 2019, and the winners of project’s raffle will be given an opportunity to attend it. The cruise is presented as a chance to develop partnerships and start conversations that will continue long after the event is over; while a noble reason to have a cruise indeed, one wonders if the same goals couldn’t have been achieved in a cheaper, land-locked setting. The event will look to give back to the community, as one randomly chosen cruise-goer will get to claim a booty of 500 PIV.

Pivx didn’t spend all that time organizing events. They recently released a Reddit tip bot which will help Pivx community members award quality posts with PIV currency. This will both motivate people to improve the quality of their posting as well as spread the word about the project. Another important resource for the community will be the newly-released pivxworld.com, a portal that collects information about events, ambassadors, social happenings, exchange news and general tidbits that could be of interest to an average PIV investor/enthusiast.
PIVX reached an important milestone recently, as they have managed to place over 25% of its coin supply in zPIV, thus making a quarter of its supply anonymous and ready for staking.

There is also work being done on bulletproofs, a technology that will help open up the mobile light wallet markets to PIVX and PIV staking even further.
This MIT licensed, open source, blockchain-based Proof of Stake cryptocurrency which sports an advanced custom implementation of Zero knowledge-proof Zerocoin protocol is making all the right moves at the moment. Will PIVX’s purple color scheme foreshadow it becoming a part of the crypto royalty? It remains to be seen.
