Stardust TIPs

The following Tangle Improvement Proposals (TIPs) are currently implemented in the Stardust protocol.

The Status of a TIP reflects its current state with respect to its progression to being supported on the IOTA mainnet.

  • Draft TIPs are work in progress. They may or may not have a working implementation on a testnet.
  • Proposed TIPs are demonstrated to have a working implementation. These TIPs are supported on Shimmer, the staging network of IOTA.
