Blockchain software program growth agency Block.One launched EOS.io 2.zero, the software program underlying the EOS blockchain.
Within the launch announcement revealed on Twitter on Jan. 10, Block.One claimed that the replace makes the blockchain “sooner, easier, and much more safe.”
Main modifications to the sensible contract digital machine
The official weblog submit on new software program explains that it features a purpose-built WebAssembly (WASM) engine on which the EOS sensible contracts run. In line with its official web site, WASM is an instruction format designed for deployment on the net and servers.
This alteration is anticipated to enhance the efficiency of sensible contract execution, provided that it’s supposedly as much as 16 instances sooner than the engine used within the earlier model.
This replace additionally introduces WebAuthn help. In line with the official web site, WebAuthn is an online authentication normal primarily based round public key cryptography. The announcement explains how EOS builders might use this normal:
“With this launch of WebAuthn help for EOSIO, builders can start testing transaction signing with WebAuthn of their EOSIO functions.”
Sources advised Cointelegraph that presently there isn’t any set date for adoption of the replace.
Community code multithreading help
Block.One additionally claims to have considerably improved the community code of the blockchain by including multithreading help to it. Multithreading is the flexibility of a central processing unit to execute a number of threads of execution on the identical time.
Multithreading help ought to enhance the efficiency in block propagation, transaction processing, block and transaction packing and unpacking and different processes as these are actually all dealt with by a separate thread. The submit reads:
“By isolating these processes we now have seen important enhancements in transaction processing and block processing efficiency on multi-producer EOSIO networks.”
Moreover, the replace is launched alongside a devoted built-in growth atmosphere (IDE) that ought to supposedly velocity up developer onboarding.
That is the second current announcement that got here from Block.One which will have a significant affect on the EOS ecosystem. As Cointelegraph reported in late December, Block.One additionally not too long ago proposed a significant change to the community’s useful resource allocation system that might require customers to hire community assets as a substitute of shopping for them.
