Our Roadmap

Hedera has an audacious but simple vision: to build a trusted, secure, and empowered digital future for all.

Q3 2020

Mainnet & Mirrornet Updates

Open Source Hedera Network Services

All of the Hedera network services will enter open source under Apache License v2.0.

Mainnet & Mirrornet Updates

HCS Latency Improvements

The Hedera mirror node software will be updated to reduce the average latency of recording a Hedera Consensus Service message or topic by roughly 40%.

Mainnet & Mirrornet Updates

State Proofs Alpha

State proofs can be requested by querying the network for a record. When a client requests an aspect of the state, nodes can construct and return a small file carrying cryptographic material and signatures to prove the returned data is the true consensus state.

Mainnet & Mirrornet Updates

Open Review

The base layer of the codebase (hashgraph consensus) will be open for public review and made available for anyone to read, recompile, and verify that it is correct.

Q4 2020

HBAR Ecosystem

Third-Party Wallet & Digital Asset Platform Integrations

Hedera continues integrations with third-parties which support the Hedera ecosystem, including wallets, on-ramps, exchange services, custody services, and more.

Network Services

Hedera Token Service on Previewnet

Hedera offers the ability to issue native tokens on a globally distributed public network, without compromising on performance, security, or stability.

Demos

Hedera Consensus Service Stablecoin Demo

Using the token specifications for Hedera Consensus Service, this demo application offers developers a framework for creating stablecoins and CBDCs.

Network Operations

Additional Network Automation: Phase 1

Nodes on the Hedera mainnet, testnet, and previewnet will have reduced downtime windows for network maintenance.

Developer Tools

Rosetta API Integration

Alignment of mirror node APIs to the Rosetta implementation as a standard exchange-agnostic way to support a common set of functions.

Network Operations

Additional Network Automation: Phase 2

Nodes on the Hedera mainnet, testnet, and previewnet will have further reduced downtime windows for network maintenance.

Mainnet & Mirrornet Updates

Hedera Consensus Service Scaling

Hedera will continue to improve its network performance in both transactions per second and latency.

HBAR Ecosystem

Exchange Integrations

Continued work on integrations with third-party exchanges to ensure access by developers to buy and sell hbar cryptocurrency globally.

2021

Mainnet & Mirrornet Updates

Hedera Token Service

Hedera offers the ability to issue native tokens on a globally distributed public network, without compromising on performance, security, or stability.

Demos

Hedera Token Service Stablecoin Demo

Using the Hedera Token Service, this demo application offers developers a framework for creating native stablecoins and CBDCs on the Hedera public network.

Developer Tools

Quorum Plugin

Implementation of a public BFT Notary Service for Quorum using Hedera Consensus Service. Globally order transactions with BFT protection against double-spends.

Network Operations

Additional Network Automation: Phase 3

Nodes on the Hedera mainnet, testnet, and previewnet will have further reduced downtime windows for network maintenance.

Mainnet & Mirrornet Updates

Hedera Token Bridge

The Hedera Token Bridge creates interoperability of tokenization between the Hedera public network and Ethereum public network; this will include the smart contract, geth node, state proof checker, supplycontroller, and more.

Mainnet & Mirrornet Updates

State Proofs Full

State proofs can be requested by querying the network for a record. When a client requests an aspect of the state, nodes can construct and return a small file carrying cryptographic material and signatures to prove the returned data is the true consensus state.

Mainnet & Mirrornet Updates

Full Mirror Node

Hedera's Mirror Node software entered beta on July 7th, 2020. Mirror nodes provide a way to store and cost-effectively query historical data from the public ledger, while minimizing the use of Hedera network resources.

Mainnet & Mirrornet Updates

Scheduled Transactions

Natively schedule transactions and queries on the Hedera public network from directly within the services layer using the Hedera API and SDKs.

Developer Tools

Developer SDKs

Support for official Hedera SDKs in Swift, Python, and C languages.

Demos

Hedera Consensus Service Demo Applications

Open source demo applications for Hedera Consensus Service to showcase unique functionality built on Hedera. These applications will showcase Hedera network services in real-world scenarios, making it easy for developers to copy from, and learn best practices for, building on Hedera.
