Despite the booming token market based on its technology, ethereum isn't deviating from its stated goal of becoming a "world computer."
In a move that showcases developers are still prioritizing the creation of so-called distributed applications (dapps), a new version of Mist, the original browser designed for ethereum apps, made its debut at Devcon today. Demoed at the Cancun conference, Moon, or Mist-light, is a browser-based rewrite of the software meant to perform similar tasks to the desktop version, though in a way that doesn't require downloading.
"I was expecting maybe 15-20 people to care about zk-snarks, but wow."
Despite his reservations, the crowd scrambled for seats as zcash researcher Andrew Miller took to the stage at Devcon3 today. But the response, at times elated, perhaps shouldn't have been a surprise as the third day of ethereum's flagship developer conference featured a selection of sessions devoted to zk-snarks and other privacy advances made possible by ethereum's latest software upgrade, Byzantium.
В ходе конференции Devcon3 основатель блокчейн-платформы Ethereum Виталик Бутерин рассказал о своем видении развития сети в долгосрочной перспективе, представив сообществу так называемое “умеренное предложение” по развитию экосистемы. Об этом сообщает CoinDesk.
Как отмечает издание, этот план рассчитан на трех- или четырехлетний период.
Swarm, the decentralized storage branch of the ethereum network, has advanced to is third proof-of-concept stage.
Speaking to CoinDesk at Devcon3, swarm lead developer Victor Tron revealed today that the proof-of-concept is now fully compatible with the ethereum client, Geth, and Whisper, the project's messaging protocol, bringing ethereum one step closer to its "holy trinity" vision, where three systems provide a complete alternative to the World Wide Web.
