The most significant highlight was the rewards increase. With the mandatory PIVX v5.5.0 update in January 2023, payments to the treasury, staking rewards, and Masternode rewards all received a significant boost. Treasury payments surged by an order of magnitude to 10 PIV per block, staking payments doubled to 4 PIV per block, and Masternode payments also doubled to 6 PIV per block. These increases have incentivized more participation and further strengthened the PIVX network!

Users can now purchase gift cards from all over the world with PIV on mypivxwallet.org, PIVCards, Shopping.io as well as Coinsbee offers a platform where $PIVX can be used to purchase various gift cards.
