Ethereum rival EOS declares independence with consensus upgrade to Antelope 3.1

  • The upgrade to Antelope Leap 3.1 further democratized the EOS network with the code now working on an open-source foundation.
  • The Leap 3.1 is the C++ implementation of the new Antelope protocol and brings along several new features. 

On Wednesday, September 21, the EOS community announced its independence while changing the destiny of the platform forever. As a result, the EOS platform will transition to being a more decentralized platform with a consensus upgrade to Antelope Leap 3.1.

Yves La Rose, CEO of EOS Network Foundation announced that they will now be liberating the EOS network’s code. “We liberate the code, not for a privileged few, but for an open future, built on open-source foundations,” he stated. The new code will embody the community’s collective aspirations of building a resilient public blockchain network. 

As a result, the EOS community will be undertaking the migration of the EOS platform to the newly forged Antelope framework. This is an open framework that brings the full power of a decentralized network and community into action. The Antelope framework offers the EOS community a new direction in the way the network is run. Thus, it is a major milestone both in terms of governance and maturity of the EOS blockchain. The EOS Network Foundation CEO Rose further stated:

Today is the hard-won culmination of our efforts to secure independence for the EOS blockchain. Thanks to the EOS Block Producers—through their trust, support, and their technical prowess, the ENF has been able to proceed unhindered in our mission to deliver value to the EOS Network.

Thanks to the many dedicated developers and project leaders who rallied together and coordinated this massive feat of engineering, our code is now on solid footing.

The EOS Hard Fork

The EOS Network originally relied upon the EOSIO code. The maintainer of this code produced EOSIO 2.1 and a release candidate for EOSIO 2.2. However, the changes were deemed to be not beneficial for several public networks that relied on the code. 

As the EOSIO codebase had thousands of unresolved issues, the EOS community engineers led by ENF forked the EOSIO 2.0 code repository to a new codebase which was then improved upon to create Leap 3.1. The Leap 3.1 is the C++ implementation of the new Antelope protocol. In Leap 3.1, several features have been backported from EOSIO 2.1 and EOSIO 2.2

However, there are also several new features “including transaction lifecycle improvements, upgraded crypto primitives that power EVM-related cryptography functions, block and SHiP pruning, and more”. Speaking on the matter, Areg Hayrapetian, Director of Engineering, ENF said:

The release of the Leap 3.1 software, and in particular the activation of the new Antelope protocol features introduced in Leap 3.1 on the EOS Network blockchain, marks an important milestone in this independence in which the Community demonstrates to the world that the EOS Network now runs on code maintained by the EOS Network Foundation on behalf of the EOS Community.

As the EOS block producers executed a coordinated hardfork to Leap 3.1, all those running the EOS nodes should upgrade them to keep syncing with the network.

Terra founder Do Kwon says he’s ‘making zero effort to hide’

Law enforcement are looking for Do Kwon, who is allegedly no longer in Singapore.

Law enforcement are looking for Do Kwon, who is allegedly no longer in Singapore.

Terraform Labs founder Do Kwon has once again stated he is not hiding from authorities – this time after South Korea prosecutors reportedly revealed an Interpol ‘Red Notice’ was out for the embattled Korean national.

But even as South Korea police says Kwon is on the run, he has come out to deny these reports – albeit from the comfort of only appearing on Twitter.

Kwon claims ‘zero effort to hide’

It’s several months since the cryptocurrency Terra Luna and stablecoin TerraUSD (UST) fell to zero to mark one of crypto’s biggest negative events of 2022. 

The contagion that followed to leave projects like crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital ‘dead’ and crypto lenders Celsius Network and Voyager Digital bankrupt only heightened the impact to crypto investors and helped add to the sharp regulatory attention on the industry.

Do Kwon sort of decided to lie low, even if to resurface recently and refute claims that he was running from law enforcement.

On Monday, he again tweeted about his being around without wanting to reveal where he was. In a reply to one tweet on where he might be as law enforcement looks for him, he said he “was making zero effort to hide.” 

In fact, he goes on walks or to malls and wondered why no one from crypto twitter hadn’t run into him.

He also appeared to downplay the Interpol arrest warrant reports, noting that he had tried searching for the Red Notice in his name but could not find it on the Interpol website.

A Twitter user pointed out that by trying to show that there was no ‘notice’ Kwon was being arrogant, the Terraform Labs founder responded:

I am literally just conveying the results of a publicly available internet search query. Not sure what part of that conveys arrogance.”

He, however, has been made aware that not all wanted persons names are listed on the Interpol website.
