Categories: CryptoNews Team Reveals EOS.IO Single Threaded Application Testnet, a leader in developing blockchain software solutions, announced that the EOS.IO Single Threaded Application Testnet (“EOS STAT”) is ready for release. This development is a major milestone for, putting development ahead of schedule. With this development coming out early, the internal team will be free to work with the development community from now until the release of the EOS.IO Multi-threaded Testnet in 2018.

EOS STAT will be a simulation of the EOS setting, including features that allow developers to evaluate, build, and test decentralized applications in a public environment, including the ability for potential Block Producers to evaluate EOS.IO. This will include twenty one block producing nodes with one node per host which will have a one second block time. This is cut down from the prior three second block time.


“We are continually working to improve EOS.IO features and performance and are excited to release this testnet for feedback and collaboration with the developer community.”  said Daniel Larimer, CTO of “Even on the single-threaded testnet, EOS.IO is now capable of over a thousand of transactions per second (TPS), making it one of the fastest smart contract environments available.”.


Additionally, EOS STAT’s P2P code will feature a better node sync, and its developer API will have a standardized coding style. A wallet will also be available for those that use the API.


What’s more, EOS STAT will have a Github page with library of tutorials, code, documentation, and sample Smart Contracts. It will feature contract security and authorization, a rate and database limiting, and a Genesis block for EOS token holders. There will also be a free faucet for those without tokens.


In the next few months the team, led by Dan Larimer, is planning the EOS.IO Multi-threaded Application Testnet (“EOS MAT”). This project is available under the GitHub name “eos:noon”. This combined with EOS STAT will come with significant refactoring, code cleanup, and inter-blockchain communication.


The team running test and trial is currently looking at setting up a testing rig of twenty one block producers and different business scenarios for a range of applications. Expect another report in February on these qualities.
Progress can be viewed on GitHub. For more information on the EOS.IO software, please visit
