Block.One, responsible for the development and maintenance of EOS, has officially launched EOS 2.0, a major update of the cryptocurrency blockchain network that promises to make its features "faster, simpler and safer," according to an official announcement made. in his account. in Twitter .
According to an article published on the official EOS blog in the new software, which includes a mechanism called WebAssembly (WASM) created specifically for the use of smart EOS contracts and would be an instructional format designed for deployment on the web and in servers. With this implementation, the expectation is to improve execution performance of developed intelligent EOS contracts. Furthermore, WASM be up to 16 times faster than the mechanism used previously by encryption.
This update also presents the WebAuthn support, which is a standard web authentication based on public key encryption that is supposed to improve security in EOS. Block.One also claims to have significantly improved the code blockchain adding network support multithreaded would be the ability of a central processing unit to run multiple threads of execution at the same time.
Therefore, multiple threading should improve performance in block propagation, transaction processing, blocking and unpacking and blocking, and other processes such as those now handled by a separate thread.
"In isolating these processes, we have seen significant improvements in transaction processing performance and processing blocks in multiple networks EOSIO producers' Block.One said.
In addition, the update is published along with an integrated development environment dedicated (IDE) that should accelerate the integration of the developer.
