In the initiative to build out a Web3 ecosystem, Elastos core development teams will be halting all development on ELA Wallet following the release of v1.5.0 on Android and iOS, and shifting all resources, integrations, and development projects to Elastos Essentials. Now four and a half years into its development, the Elastos ecosystem has transformed from an ambitious technical blueprint to a robust base infrastructure for decentralized Web3 applications. As its infrastructure and platform services continue to evolve, so too must the objectives and approach of its core developer teams.
As the Elastos ecosystem and community organizations transition to a more mature Web3 ecosystem, development teams in the Elastos ecosystem will be shifting their focus to applications and ecosystem tools most aligned with the openness, inclusivity, and integration potential native to the Web3 paradigm.
As the flagship Super-Wallet of the Elastos ecosystem, Elastos Essentials is already popular amongst users for its integrated DID functions, Hive decentralized storage, and Elastos Carrier’s private communication network.
