Elastos Smart Contract Chain Upgrade Announcement

Elastos Gelaxy Team is pleased to announce its upcoming upgrade of the Elastos Smart Contract (ESC) Chain to the latest Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) version, London. The upgrade will bring the ESC chain up to speed with the latest developments in the Ethereum ecosystem and provide greater functionality and security for users.

The upgrade is anticipated to be completed by June, 2023. It will involve several key steps, including upgrading the go_ethereum stack implementation structure, adapting to the Berlin and London upgrade configurations, and upgrading the ABI library. The new EVM version will support Solidity Version 0.8.x and the latest features, such as zero-knowledge proofs.

This upgrade will significantly improve the ESC chain, including increased efficiency, better security, and compatibility with the broader Ethereum ecosystem. In addition, ESC chain will be able to provide its users with the latest developments in smart contract technology, allowing them to take advantage of new opportunities in the rapidly growing blockchain space.

Elastos Identity (EID) chain will also be upgraded to the newest EVM, ensuring that users of both the ESC and EID chain can deploy applications using the same standards. Stay tuned for further updates on the progress of the upgrade and the new features it will bring to the ESC and EID chains.
