The Aeternity Foundation (ACF) supports the æternity protocol and ecosystem
The ACF is giving funding grants for application on the promotion of the success and growth of the æternity ecosystem as well as the æternity blockchain maintenance. Weekly detailed reports on the progress of the developers can be found in the Active Grant Applications under the forum’s ACF Grant Category.
Our goal remains the same: to make the æternity node faster, better, and lighter and the ae ecosystem more attractive for the users. The hyperchain network using the æternity nodes has been designed to attract the Aeternity enterprise customers and their users. On top of the faster æternity network and hyperchain network the decentralized applications (dapps) can be run with higher performance and in a private context. Therefore the whole æternity ecosystem will perform with higher availability, scalability, security, and performance.
During April 2021 the æternity core team had focused on Iris:
- voting on Iris Hard Fork was made
- Iris release candidate for testing was produced
- a final stable and secure Iris release had been prepared
Simultaneously the private HyperChains (HC) were intensively tested. As a result, the HC protocol and HC whitepaper were further improved. The HC Roadmap for April 2021 was published on HC Roadmap.
The continuous maintenance process resulted in a new release, 5.11 in April 2021 with fine-tuned features, bug fixing, and polishing.
The remaining part of the quarter Q2 2021 has the focus on the User Experience (UX) and User Interfaces (UI). The following features are planned:
- DB refactoring is resulting in stability and performance improvements.
There is currently a large Scale DB refactoring going on and it will result in better node stability. This DB refactoring might provide some performance boost. It will also allow us to improve the node in some new ways.
- Introduction of a maintenance ...
