Elastos Bi-Weekly Update – 19 March, 2023

The Elastos ecosystem is entering a new era with the upcoming launch of Bonded Proof of Stake (BPoS), which will replace Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) as one of the three pillars of Elastic Consensus. The Gelaxy Team is preparing for the transition. Meanwhile, the Elastos Smart Contract Chain (ESC) browser upgrade has been completed, and the Elastos IdentityChain (EID) browser upgrade is ongoing.

Essentials released version 3.0.3 of their wallet with improved Tron network features and optimized the UI for red packet activity and the upcoming BPoS. The Carrier and Hive teams made optimizations and improvements to their code to enhance performance. The Feeds team deployed two Nostr relay nodes integrated with Elastos DID, and the winners of the Nostr/Elastos article contest were also announced, with first and second prizes awarded.
