EOS Network Completes Antelope 3.1 Upgrade


EOS’ latest Antelope Protocol update severs the EOS Network Foundation’s ties to Block.one and Bullish.

The EOS network announced in a blog post on Wednesday, September 21, that it has successfully completed its consensus upgrade to Antelope Leap 3.1.

This latest development means that the EOS network is no longer tied to Block.one and Bullish.

Block.one was the team behind the development of the EOS blockchain when it launched a few years ago. EOS was previously one of the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, but has failed to keep up with the competition in the past two years.

According to the team, the move to Antelope Leap 3.1 will see EOS block makers operating the public network formally adopt code developed solely under the helm of the EOS Network Foundation (ENF).

The code for the EOSIO public network was maintained by Block.one, later acquired by Digital Asset Exchange Bullish.

Antelope is an open framework for building fast, secure and easy-to-use Web3 products and services.

While commenting on this latest development, Yves La Rose, CEO, EOS Network Foundation said;

“Today marks the hard-won culmination of our efforts to secure the independence of the EOS blockchain. Thanks to the EOS Block Producers – through their trust, support and technical prowess, the ENF has been able to continue unimpeded in our mission to deliver value to the EOS Network. Thanks to a diverse and resilient community, the momentum we have steadily built is now a force to be reckoned with. This is a beautiful victory, but long in our own glory we cannot cherish, we must keep moving! What becomes of EOS next is what we make of it.”

The EOS community decided to move away from the EOSIO code following the resignation of Dan Larimer, the loss of core engineers from the project, a short-lived EOSIO for Business campaign and the move of several EOSIO engineers to Bullish-related development.
