Elastos Bi-Weekly Update – 21 June 2019


The last two weeks have seen a lot of progress.

A fully autonomous DPoS Consensus went live with the conclusion of the inaugural round of community elections, Ethereum Sidechain hit the testnet, Elastos Foundation joined the World Wide Web Consortium and Decentralized Identity Foundation, and an updated Project Development Roadmap delineating the path to Main Net 3.0 was released.

We are now more decentralized than ever. 

Let’s recap.

Feng Han gave a speech at the “Digital Economy – The New Global Paradigm” conference in Hong Kong where Elastos was a co-organizing partner.

Elastos founder Rong Chen shared his personal journey at the Elastos bookclub on the Chinese platform Qianliao. Rong spoke about how a staunch commitment to education changed his fortune, leading him to Tsinghua University just one year after the national college entrance exams were reinstated. He also spoke about why he chose to study computer science in 1977, a time when the industry was still in its early stages, and why he gave up on his PhD to join Microsoft.

Feng Han held a Meetup at the Asia Blockchain Society to interact with the Hong Kong Blockchain Community.

June 17

Feng Han participated in a blockchain-related event in the city of Chengdu, where he gave two status updates pertaining to recent developments within the Elastos community:
1. Post-Bitcoin blockchain that has the greatest re-use of PoW hash power, merged mining has 45% of the hash power of Bitcoin (averaging 24.1EH/s over almost three days);
2. MyToken platform ranks Elastos as number 34 globally for overall development activity.
