Blockchain Developers on Spree of Releases during Market Downturn, Says CZ

Blockchain Developers on Spree of Releases during Market Downturn, Says CZ

The market’s imploding capitalization seems to have sparked an industry-wide battle cry to build and bring to fruition blockchain’s unrealized potential. And as Binance’s defiantly cheery CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao pointed out, it seems that developers have answered the call.

The ubiquitous executive and Twitter personality highlighted in a tweet, Nov. 20, that a number of cryptocurrency pillars have published new releases on GitHub, the largest source-code host in the world recently acquired by Microsoft.

Bitcoin ABC has fired off its 0.18.5 release for Bitcoin Cash, apparently determined to keep “users’ funds secured and the network and currency fully functional” amidst the ongoing protocol fork saga.

EOS, the sixth-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, is now available in version 1.4.4, which purportedly offers “bug fixes and continuous integration improvements”. Dan Larimer’s other brainchild, BitShares, has been upgraded in a new release fixing a previously blank voting page for its user interface.

Cardano and Nano have also been pepped up with new releases, ironing out the kinks in operations with Zcash, unveiling its first client version compatible with its new Sapling network upgrade – which purportedly will see the privacy coin execute transactions in seconds to and from shielded addresses.
