EOSweekly: Mandel 3.0, Yves, Aaron, Dan, ZEOS, Bullish, Gamebox
Mandel 3.0- nuff said. A community and it’s developers in accord- ‘We want action! And, we want it now.’ Dan, Aaron, and Yves all share insight and passion. Gamebox reveals more if its vision. ZEOS airdrops a sustainable privacy coin. Bullish went live. Merry Christmas.
Mandel 3.0: Yes, Forking EOSIO
Dan Larimer concluded last week’s tweet with with “More coming…”. He didn't disappoint on that promise. Mandel 3.0 was introduced to the community on December 19. It'll be the third major upgrade of EOSIO software. The name Mandel exists as a placeholder until a more suitable one can be selected. The EOS Network Foundation listed notable upgrades as:
Configurable WASM Limits
Enhanced Configurable Blockchain Params
Backport valuable 2.1 features
With “*Future Releases*” as:
Intrinsics to accelerate EVM and privacy support
For more detailed commentary, you can read my article A NEW DAWN: Overview of Third Generation EOS Mainnet Software. Feel the excitement through the words of bytemaster7:
With the latest Mandel road map and Contract Pays hard fork, it should be possible for EOS to mirror the Bitcoin RPC API and transaction structure and thereby open the world of BTC infrastructure and Lightning network to #EOS, similar RPC compatibility to #ETH is also in dev.
ZEOS: EOS Privacy
All holders of PEOS received ZEOS in an airdrop this week. No claim was necessary. The snapshot was taken on December 24th and dropped on the 25th. This marks the beginning of sustainable privacy coins and defi within the EOS ecosystem. Privacy coins are a big deal especially in mindful communities like EOS. Freedom does not exist without the right to privacy. It's also an essential part of a free market. The ZEOS team has a short-term plan in 1.0, as well as longer term outlook in 2.0. The above image was taken from a November 7th tweet by Eden Capital.
Yves Recent Bywire News Interview
Yves began the interview answering questions about the Token Freeze. He tied in the perspective that everyone is supposed to have ‘skin in the game’. Then he points to June 2020 when EOSIO code development began to deteriorate. This coincides with the exodus of Dan and other developers from B1. Yves goes into some detail about specific areas where post EOSIO 2.0 code requires substantial corrections. It seems pretty clear that many of the remaining developers were rededicated to Bullish. Yves essentially lays out how the mainnet essentially ‘fired’ B1 for underperformance. Block producer characteristics and issues are another key factor in this discussion. You’re sure to find the second part of the interview of interest as well.
Why is a section entitled “Taking Action” warranted this week? Read Aaron Cox's comment…:
We're done waiting and it's time to rally the entire #EOSIO family.
...and this snippet from bytemaster7:
#EOS has been a ship adrift with no captain ... it has now taken responsibility for its future and ... about to unleash unprecedented decentralized funded ... development...
Strong words. If you listened to the Yves interview, then you know he’s equally passionate. Characteristic of all their opinions is action... "We want action!" These words ring louder with every new release. Doubters simply need to reference EdenOS, implementation of a fee structure, ClarionOS, and Mandel 3.0. That's just core mainnet development. If you really want to gauge the excitement of the community, review the first round of Pomelo's quadratic funding and ENF recognition grants. Some of these projects like EOS support are already up and running.
Gamebox is positioning itself to be a leader in the gaming, nft, and defi space. Indeed, they're all very much related. Aptly termed an incubator, Gamebox will support both players and game developers. It's a network that makes learning crypto games easy. Understanding that GameFi, like DeFi, exists within a symbiotic ecosystem also finds a more manageable learning curve. The whitepaper is linked right on the landing page. There's even a game (Bit Star Wars) already promoted on site. Look out for a lot more from this team- and soon.
Bullish Now Live for Individuals
Bullish went live in more than 40 jurisdictions throughout the world. Up until this point, only select institutions were able to take advantage of Bullish's innovative solution. Just because the mainnet community decided to move on without B1, should we ignore innovations like Bullish? Of course not. Bullish may very well prove the standard for institutionally backed exchanges. Dan congratulated the team. So did the Defibox team. For more details, check out the FinanceFeeds article tweeted by Maldito that puts the Bullish launch and NYSE listing in perspective.
Around the EdenOS Genesis Community on EOS
The spirit of Christmas echoes across the Eden community (image above is from EOS Support). In addition to the Yves interview, Bywire News also interviewed Dan Larimer this week. Among the topics discussed was the potential of fractal democracy. A “democracy of DAOs” seems likely to manifest as EdenOS and the ENF mature. This is where independent community tokens come into play. Dan also took to twitter this week to comment on true defi and his forthcoming white paper on decentralized governance. A community vote clearly showed the desire for more core development teams. The ENF was vocal in supporting crypto as a whole by critiquing Jack Dorsey’s pessimistic view regarding Web3:
"The #EOS community has recently demonstrated the full power of #Web3…”
