2 years and over 350000 blocks ago, æternity’s genesis block was mined
On the 28th of November 2018, a major milestone was reached — the first live incarnation of the æternity blockchain — Roma Release, was launched!
æternity founder Yanislav Malahov took the opportunity to tweet about the Genesis block hash.
“…æternity has created a system that delivers on the original promise of enabling faster transactions without sacrificing rich functionality and decentralization. The protocol is based on an entirely new architecture that builds on the lessons learned over the past 10 years of blockchain-focused research.”
To list a few major milestones since November 2018, æternity has made several major improvements:
Protocol improvements in the form of hard forks (Minerva, Fortuna, and Lima releases), the Fast æternity Transaction Engine — FATE, the decentralized naming system AENS, and implementation of built-in oracles into the protocol. In terms of functionality and utility systems, there’s æternity wallets, browser extensions, SDK improvements, and æternity’s unique middleware. æternity’s decentralized application ecosystem hosts platforms such as Superhero, Cryptic Legends, the Drone Graffiti Project, Homeport, ReCheck, Assessify, UTU, and many others.
With numerous community initiatives, events and hackathons, the community has expanded across continents and became a founding member of the International Token Standardization Association (ITSA).
These summarized achievements are merely the tip of the iceberg regarding everything that has happened in the previous 2 years of æternity.
And that’s why this week is dedicated to æ history!
