Ethereum blockchain project to get new updates

Thursday 16 February 2017 | 09:23 AM CET

Vitalik Buterin, the creator of the Ethereum blockchain project called Metropolis, has announced updates on the software.

The project developer offered on a blog post details about the changes that could be included in the Metropolis update and a window into the platform's development efforts, without disclosing its release date. Metropolis follows two previous versions of Ethereum, 'Homestead' (released last March) and 'Frontier', which debuted in July 2015.

In 2016, Ethereum’s developer team has confronted with events such as the collapse of The DAO and denial-of-service attacks against the Ethereum network. Therefore, one major change is the concept of “abstraction”, embodied in Ethereum Improvement Proposal 86, which aims to cut complexity in the system by shifting some of its foundational rules around security into contracts.
