Antelope, a community-run blockchain protocol, has announced that it has made a decision to fork from EOSIO 2.0. Following the decision, Antelope created a new website and also made a public release of the Antelope Github repository.
Moving on, Antelope will be led by a coalition led by the EOS Network Foundation that comprises community members from Telos, UX Network, EOS (EOS/USD), and Wax. All the members of the coalition will share in developing the underlying blockchain codebase of Antelope and also in a collaborative development treasury for continuously improving the core protocol that each of the public networks shares.
After the announcement, Douglas Horn, the Telos Chief Architect said:
“Antelope is a protocol built by its users, for its users. Together we’ll launch Antelope as the most user-friendly, stable and secure protocol for building new chains that are infinitely flexible and constantly upgradeable. The future is multi-chain and Antelope is poised to be an undisputed leader in web3 and blockchain technology. The partnership with EOS, WAX and UX networks represents a real alignment of incentives with game-changing benefits to Telos and all the Antelope chains.”
The CEO and Executive Director of EOS Network Foundation, Yves La Rose, also said:
“The release of Antelope is the culmination of an historic effort undertaken by some of the most talented developers in blockchain. We are building upon over four years of battle-hardened code, and the cumulative knowledge of four L1 chains leveraging each other’s strengths, all united behind the Antelope protocol. At the EOS Network Foundation, we’re committed to exemplifying the best that Antelope has to offer by making EOS the most powerful and usable platform for building next-generation web3 products and services.”
EOSIO discounted by Block.One
The EOSIO development was discounted by Block.one last year and Antelope needs to iterate the codebase and rejuvenate the community.
The initial set of innovations including API improvements, history pruning, and enhanced cryptographic functions have already been delivered with the launch of the Antelope. These innovations improve the efficiency and performance of operating EVM runtime within Antelope smart contracts.
Several critical RFPs have also been proposed by the Antelope coalition to enhance the protocol. These RFPs include proposals for SDKs, faster finality, and P2P code improvements. The UX Network has also been tasked with deploying its Trustless Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) system to enable Trustless IBC between participating Antelope-based blockchains.
While the initial focus for the Antelope Coalition is technical improvements, the attention will later shift to the broader Antelope ecosystem to ensure anyone can seamlessly create next-generation dApps and Web3 services including DeFi and NFTs.
