Alcyone Release notes: January 2021

Learn about new features added to the Alcyone testnet for Polymesh in January 2021 including including security token offerings (STOs) and portfolio transaction history.

The start of 2021 brings us yet another month closer to the launch of Polymesh mainnet. As we creep closer to that release, we’ll continue pushing out features and functionality big and small that will support issuers, investors, and other Polymesh blockchain users in the security token lifecycle.


Create your security token offering on Polymesh testnet (Alcyone) through an easy-to-use interface where you can configure your STO, track its progress, and settle transactions for your offering. Token Studio STOs on Alcyone will allow users to experience a DvP-like settlement experience with a testnet stablecoin, with future plans to allow for a hybrid approach where users can subscribe to an STO raise off-chain, followed by on-chain settlement.

To properly test this feature for Polymesh, we also need to address the investor side of an STO raise. For testnet only, we’ve created an investor portal and testnet stable coin (ALCY) to provide testers the opportunity to experience the other end of an STO raise. At this point in time, there are no plans to make the investor portal interface available on Token Studio for Polymesh mainnet, but it will remain accessible for use for testing purposes on testnet.

To test STOs and the testnet investor portal

  1. Create an STO in the Token Studio
  2. Accept your ALCY stable coins
  3. Go to the testnet investor portal 

Portfolio Transaction History

Rather than scouring a block explorer to understand your portfolio transactions, see a clear and filtered version of your history. Here you can review and explore past transactions from each of your portfolios, including which portfolio managers made those transactions. 

To see your portfolio transaction history, go to the Polymesh Portal.

Each of these Polymesh features are released and available to test on the Alcyone Testnet through the dApp links above.
