Mainnet 3.0 is on the runway. Audit+ blue paper is live. Rumbling of a Multi-chainVerse taking storm in the ENF’s vicinity. Pomelo comes back stronger for season 2. A couple of hot interviews boost community support. Gaming becoming more popular around Eden.
Mandel (EOSIO) 3.0 Release Candidate
Mandel (EOSIO) 3.0 release candidate is here. Dan Larimer outlined the path to a new EOS age in Fractally Releases Mandel 3.0 RC 1 to replace EOSIO. The release candidate is the first step in the roadmap toward activating the mainnet 3.0 hardfork. Deployment is targeted for May, but first the community will come together for the second Eden on EOS election (April 19). Fractally will provide support during the test network phase. Completion time is estimated around a month. For a deeper look, check out Hot Sauce and Fractally’s Mandel 3.0 overview videos.
Building the Multi-chainVerse
What good is a multiverse that’s not multichain? A large blockchain like Ethereum might be able to pull it off, but at substantial tradeoffs. Creativity is limited among single-chain minded maximalists. EOSIO doesn’t just foster creativity through sister chains. It also easily integrates other core technology. The EOS Network Foundation put it this way:
In true #web3 fashion, the future of #EOSIO is open and collaborative. Everyone is welcome…#ENF has initiated what should have happened years ago.
Multichain is coming. James Mart brought attention to Mandel 3.0 VSCode now up for tinkering. James also ranted on exchange voting pertaining to surplus. While Ives La Rose ranted on staffing the ENF. Both are relevant to the Multi-chainVerse discussion. Keeping in the spirit, how about Chex on Binance and Ethereum.
Pomelo Season 2 on the Horizon
Pomelo Season 2 runway is in sight. The matching pool is 77% larger this time around. At $888,888 USD, the EOS Network Foundation contribution sets a solid pace for ongoing development. It’s a well coordinated initiative timed to support both Mandel 3.0 and the second official election of Eden on EOS. EOS Nation, the team behind Pomelo, and the ENF are as integral to the mainnet community as any organization. Their leadership is immeasurable in providing the resources the community needs to rally around promising projects.
EOS Interviews: Hot Sauce Nation and User Support
These days, EOS Nation makes its presence felt in different ways. Always involved in developing and maintaining the mainnet, team Hot Sauce wields potentially great power via Pomelo. The first season of quadratic funding was a resounding success. Daniel Keys was interviewed by Bywire News to discuss what looms on the horizon. Among Pomelo’s key successes has been EOS Support. Chief Delegate and CEO of EOS Support, Roland Randall, was also interviewed by Bywire News this week. He went into details about what the community can expect moving forward.
Audit+ Blue Paper
The Audit+ blue paper is here. Audit+ will become instrumental for using EOSIO as a revolutionary approach to security architecture. The paper was researched and authored by two companies, auditing specialist Sentnl and security specialist Slowmist. They begin the paper’s abstract with a succinct objective statement:
In this paper we provide our research and initiatives around improving the overall security of EOSIO blockchains.
An overriding tone is the untapped potential of EOSIO security. More than a feature, EOSIO can provide industry leadership given the right tools. Such tools have mostly been ignored, or at best, lacked support. With the ENF now in a position of influence, security core developments become a no-brainer. A total of 4 working group papers expect to be released in the coming month. The Audit+ paper can be read and downloaded in English, Chinese, and Korean.
Around the EdenOS Genesis Community on EOS
Eden as a community continues to grow with each passing week. Fireside chats take place on Wednesday. More recently, EOS game nights have sprung up on Fridays. Blankos Block Party provides an excellent venue for creative minds. Imagine how the community might be nurtured through regular, meaningful discourse and game play. Credit to Rami James for reporting the contributions of representatives from Voice and Bullish during this week’s EOSIO group call. Don’t forget to check Chief Delegate meetings #15 and #16.
Cryptowriter (Finney) Report
Change and innovation looms on the horizon for Finney, UNDRGRND, and Cryptowriter. It’s an across the board effort focused on new features, coordination, and multichain dynamics. Finney OG (crypto)CharlieQ summed up a recent Edge of Obscurity:
Sean talks about a new coin and bringing all finneys under one roof in discord…
Join Finney social media (especially Finney discord). If nothing for just what Sean said on the Edge:
…we’re just going to make it rain NFTs because you got all these people that are coming in. They might not know what Crunks are or what Finneys are… [10:01] (image from [40:00])

I'm looking forward to the release of Dan's Fractally on EOS......only to weeks away!🤫
Release date 22/2/22 at 22.22pm
Multi chain verse developments are very exciting. You’re right that ETH might be able to pull off a ‘locked blockchain’ approach due to the size but others will have to collaborate. And collaboration generally fosters more development and a better interoperable space as a whole. Great to see that this is being recognized and acted upon. Can’t wait for the updates coming to the writer family of brands. As someone who came from Crunks initially, it was a little difficult finding and learning about the other communities. The upcoming changes will facilitate a lot more people in exploring all of the super cool writer brands. This is good for everyone and all the individual projects as it should help improve the overall clout of the brand and visibility within the crypto community.
