Today, we announce the first beta release of the Parity Ethereum client version 1.10 "Opportunity" March 21, 2018 As millions continue to be affected by conflict and natural disasters, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) has recognised the potential of blockchain as a tool that can help feed the hungry. Every March 09, 2018 Transaction fees on the Ethereum main network have risen to rates that are far too expensive for ÐApps to run efficiently. Decentralised initiatives such as Giveth and Swarm.City have seen their projects February 09, 2018 After receiving many proposals from security auditing firms, we are excited to announce that we have chosen Trail of Bits to review and, if indicated, improve the security of our code. With the January 26, 2018 Dear Ethereum communities, dear blockchain developers, dear decentralization enthusiasts: Parity Technologies is thrilled to announce the latest release: Parity 1.9 or Velocity. We’ve knuckled down and implemented a bunch of optimisation December 11, 2017 A Brief History Since Ethereum went live two and a half years ago, users and developers have often struggled with the usability and building on this new ‘Frontier’ of development. The issues began November 15, 2017 On Monday November 6th 2017 02:33:47 PM UTC, a vulnerability in the “library” smart contract code, deployed as a shared component of all Parity multi-sig wallets deployed after July 20th 2017, November 13, 2017 This week, as has been widely reported, a vulnerability in the Parity Wallet library contract of the standard multi-sig contract was found by an anonymous user. This user managed to gain access to November 08, 2017 Severity: Critical Product affected: Parity Wallet (multi-sig wallets) Summary: A vulnerability in the Parity Wallet library contract of the standard multi-sig contract has been found.

Our team is thrilled to announce its recent upgrade that includes support July 28, 2017 It has been all too long since our last release. Some four months have passed since the 1.6 series and over that time we've seen the rise of ETH and BTC, ICO July 27, 2017 A quick update on the status of Parity Ethereum client. Bug Bounty There is now a significant amount in our bug bounty programme (many thanks to all contributors). As mentioned in a previous July 24, 2017 As recent events have shown us, it's not always enough to have good programmers, open-source software and peer reviews in order to ensure no critical bugs make it through to release. While users July 21, 2017 Severity: Critical Product affected: Parity Wallet Affected implementations: Parity 1.5 or later Summary: A vulnerability in Parity Wallet's variant of the standard multi-sig contract has been found. Affected users: Any user with July 20, 2017 On Wednesday 19th July, 2017 a bug found in the multi-signature wallet ("multi-sig") code used as part of Parity Wallet software was exploited by parties unknown. As of the time of May 17, 2017 It has come to our attention that a small minority of users have misunderstood a function within Parity Wallet, and in doing so have created insecure accounts. TL;DR: Don't use the " March 13, 2017 As Spring returns the blood to our blushing chops, I'm happy to come to you with news of our latest release. After a couple of weeks in lovely Castello Tesino on our (apparently) January 25, 2017 Well, it's that time again, folks. You find me writing this on the train back from our ten day Yuletide retreat-sprint. Most of the team (pictured below) spent 10 days in lovely Lipia November 07, 2016 I'm pleased to announce the release of the latest in the series of Parity. As the 1.3 series becomes our stable release with 1.3.10, 1.4 is elevated to beta October 06, 2016 It's been a hectic few weeks for Ethereum and for Parity’s dev team. Some rather irresponsible individual found a flaw in the Ethereum protocol; notably several of the EVM’s operations were August 17, 2016 Another 7 weeks pass and I'm happy to announce a shiny new release of Parity! It has been a busy time for us (and the community as a whole!) with various events happening July 19, 2016 Get the latest Parity here. The latest version of Parity has just been released - this build includes modification for the hard fork, improved performance when syncing and other bug fixes. If you July 12, 2016 AN OPINION OF ETHCORE A shared experience of disbelief flooded through the Ethereum community a few weeks ago - not because hacks are unheard of - but because the sheer scale of this June 29, 2016 GRIEFING THE NETWORK Recent blog posts have highlighted a previously noted issue with the type of transaction-blocking that the soft fork uses to freeze access to the DAO's funds. Namely that any transaction June 27, 2016 Condition-Orientated Programming (COP) is a hybrid approach between functional and imperative programming. Done properly it is a tool in your arsenal for writing safe, secure contracts. It helps make your contract code comprehensively June 26, 2016 To look at Ethereum social media today you might think that we had somehow been invaded by some obscure political subreddit. Words like ‘principles’, ‘ideologies’, and ‘zealotry’ are being thrown around. It has June 24, 2016 It has been longer than expected in the coming, but I'm happy to announce at long last the third major release of Parity, codenamed "Security". This release is the culmination of June 17, 2016 What can be done? Ideally, the DAO developers will find a way to extract the stolen funds without any protocol alterations (aka "hard fork"). However, such a plan, if feasible, will June 17, 2016 Two days ago a flaw was spotted in the contract code of theDAO - specifically a recursive call issue that exists in the function withdrawRewardFor. https://forum.daohub.org/t/bug-discovered-in-mkr-token-contract-also-affects-thedao-would-allow-users-to-steal-rewards-from-thedao-by-calling-recursively/4947/7 May 02, 2016 A short 6 weeks since Parity 1.0, I'm happy to announce Parity 1.1, codename Alacrity.

But aside from
