The Discreet Year to Come
As we move into 2023, we have some exciting developments in store for the Discreet community. (Don’t forget that our ongoing public pre-sale offering is tentatively set to close in Q2 2023: one last chance to get in on the ground floor!)
One of our most anticipated updates will be the introduction of PEXOS, a programmable extension to the Discreet protocol, making Discreet the equivalent of digital cash. PEXOS will allow for the creation of smart contracts and other programmable functionality, effectively turning Discreet into programmable money.
We also have some exciting exchange listings and partnerships planned to be announced this year, providing more liquidity and accessibility for existing and future Discreet holders.
To further increase the appeal of Discreet, we will also be undergoing a brand refresh in 2023, with a cleaner look and a more widely appealing design aesthetic.
Additionally, we will be implementing our novel Private-Proof-of-Stake consensus protocol, Aurem, which will provide improved security and scalability for the Discreet network.
We are focused on facilitating the use of Discreet as a private point-of-sale currency option, making our theoretical use cases a reality. Our ambition is to create a viable and eminently usable real-world currency. Furthermore, we will continue to develop our mobile wallet, along with development of a Metamask-like plugin.
As we continue to expand our team, we will also be pushing for an extensive marketing and educational campaign to help educate people on the necessity for fast and privacy-respecting currencies.

Thank you for your continued support, and for sharing our vision of a lightning fast, completely private digital currency.
