The Block.One Published Blockchain Upgrade To Block.One EOS,io 2.0

Blockchain software development firm Block. One released 2.0, the blockchain-based software underlying the EOS. On January 10, an announcement released in Twitter stated that Block. One claimed the upgrade would make the blockchain “faster, simpler, and safer.”


An official new software blog post describes that it contains a goal-built WebAssembly (WASM) system on which EOS smart contracts are running. WASM is an instruction format designed for cloud and server implementation, according to its official website.

The update is supposed to improve smart contract implementation performance, since it is supposedly up to 16 times better than the engine used in the previous version. This update introduces support for WebAuthn as well. WebAuthn is a web authentication protocol, based on the public key cryptography, according to the official website.

“With this release of WebAuthn support for EOSIO, developers can begin testing transaction signing with WebAuthn in their EOSIO applications.” The release discusses how this standard could be used by EOS developers.

Block. One also appears to have significantly improved the blockchain’s network code by introducing multithreading support to it. Multithreading is a power distribution unit capable of running multiple implementation threads at the same time. Multithreading assistance should improve the performance of block reproduction, transaction processing, block and transaction loading and unpacking and other processes as these are now all handled through a separate thread.

“By isolating these processes we have seen significant improvements in transaction processing and block processing performance on multi-producer EOSIO networks.” Stated in the post.

In addition, the upgrade is included along with a new Integrated Development Environment (IDE) which is expected to facilitate the onboarding of developers. Previously reported in late December, Block. One also recently proposed a major change to the allocation of resources structure in the network that would enable users to rent network resources rather than purchase them.
