The world of cryptocurrency is always evolving. Even though some developments seemingly take a lot longer than people would like, that is the nature of this business. The EOS project, for example, is still awaiting the launch of its mainnet. While that is somewhat worrisome, it seems there is a more than valid reason for the latest delay.
EOS Mainnet Launch Delayed Again
Anyone who has been keeping an eye on the EOS project will know that this project was originally scheduled to launch some time ago. So far, this hasn’t happened yet, but there is no reason to despair just yet. There is nothing wrong with the blockchain itself, though there is still plenty of room for improvements and additions to the existing technology.
It seems the EOS mainnet launch will still occur in the coming days. Unfortunately, that is a lot later than most people had hoped for, but there isn’t much to be done about that, unfortunately. The EOS Mainnet Launch Group (EMLG) is working to provide users with a secure and seamless launch. That is much easier said than done, as there is still a lot of work to be done.
The EOS mainnet GitHub repo has been officially established, which is a positive development in its own right. A proper review of the code is still ongoing, and a full community review of the repo will occur pretty soon. Additionally, the system accounts and contracts have all been validated, which is a positive development for this project in its current state.
What is perhaps the most intriguing development of all is that the team is looking at two different candidate chains. This seems to confirm that slightly different measures are being explored right now, although it also shows EOS is designed to be as competitive as possible.
For the time being, an official release date for the EOS project remains elusive. The EMLG is confident that the launch will happen within the next few days, although there are still a lot of things that are yet to be completed. A few issues are being addressed as of right now, and the security focus has never been higher. Even so, key challenges remain.
It will be rather interesting to see how things evolve for the EOS project. One has to commend the team for not launching a project too soon and solving bugs afterward. Instead, they are purposefully pushing back their launch date for as long as necessary until proper security measures are put in place. It’s an interesting situation to keep an eye on; that much is evident.
