What is next?: Stacks 2.1 timeline details about the transition period Stacks 2.1 impact on Stacking
A stacker is someone involved in the Stacks community, but also someone who is locking their STX to participate in consensus and earn Bitcoin.
If you want to know a lot more about Stacks then check out these links: Whitepapers about Stacks, mining resources and about scaling stacks with hyperchains.
Decentralized finance is in the bones of the Stacks network with Proof of Transfer (PoX) providing Bitcoin yields to anyone stacking the native token.
Newbies start at stacks101.com, official sites and wallets, read some of the whitepapers, and community content to get a better idea of what Stacks is.
Github, discord, the docs, Stacks Improvement Prososals, Clarity-search, Deployed Contracts db and the Clarity academy are some nice places to start or progress from.
First were the Badges, then Boom.money introduced minting your own NFT's, closely followed by the first NFT Auction by #1 and Boombox'. A little later @PunksOnStacks after that many more projects followed.
Decentralized autonomous organisations on Stacks. In the future DAOos will make it easy to launch your own DAO with on chain voting.
The mining docs are a great place to start. Questions are best directed to #mining channel on the Stacks discord. And do check the mining bot.
Stacks token offerings from the past were all SEC approved. And soon the exit report will be filled because Stacks is a decentralized network and not a security.
A user owned internet, where actors Can't Be Evil, is the general idea of the Stacks network. By enabling inherent privacy and security, users are in control. The (Ryder) project on Stacks makes it easy to securely use your private keys and social identity with a hardware device: the first social wallet will be launched through an NFT sale soon. The Blockchain Naming System (BNS), a system for a self-sovereign identity (SSI) and decentralized identity (DID), gives public keys a human readable equivalent and other important advantages to help achieve the general goal. The Stacks network uses a unique consensus algorithm called Proof of Transfer (PoX). Miners have to send Bitcoin to those stacking the native Stacks token which is in effect securing the network with Proof of Work (PoW) by proxy. In practice this means that if you stake the native token (STX) you get a yield in Bitcoin... and that Bitcoin can then pay for our user owned internet, right?
