progress in advance of development! block.one Releases EOS.IO Application Testing Network



On December 4, 2017, block.one announced that the EOS.IO Single-Thread Application Testing Network ("EOS STAT") will be officially released today.

According to reports, EOS STAT will be EOS.IO - public testing environment for blockchain software developed and maintained by block.one for the developer community. This announcement made EOS.IO progress ahead of schedule and allowed internal teams to work hand-in-hand with the developer community to ensure EOS.IO was successfully released on June 1, 2018.

The release of EOS STAT allows developers to evaluate, build, and test decentralized applications in a common environment, as well as allow potential block producers to evaluate EOS.IO. It mimics the EOS.IO software, scheduled to be released next year, with 21 block production nodes, one block-out time, a stable developer API, a wallet for setup, and an account system using the API, contract security and verification.

"We will continue to improve the functionality and performance of EOS.IO and we are excited to launch this test network in the hope of providing feedback and working with the developer community," said Daniel Larimer, CTO at block.one. "Even though On a single-threaded test network, EOS.IO now reaches TPS performance of over 1,000, making it one of the fastest smart contract environments ever. "
In 2018 EOS.IO's Multi-Threaded Application Testing Network (MAT) will be released and will be refactored to include blockchain communication capabilities. The progress can be viewed on GitHub .
