Last week, DevCon, as the vane of blockchain technology development, concluded in Osaka, Japan. DevCon is an annual gathering held by the Ethereum foundation. The meeting is mainly aimed at all practitioners of Ethereum ecology, developers, researchers, client implementers, infrastructure operators, community organizers, etc. This conference attracted about 3000 participants to discuss current and future issues related to the construction of Ethereum ecology and blockchain ecology. In addition to the participation of the core team of Ethereum represented by V God, QuarkChain also sent engineers to participate in the conference and held the “Devcon segment night” technology sharing offline meeting activity.
Gathering the core team of Ethereum
As an annual conference, DevCon brings together core Ethereum developers from all over the world. In addition, as a developer conference, each DevCon will hold several development workshops in the conference hall. Many excellent developers will personally explain the top technology development and the realization of various important functions in the industry, communicate with developers and enthusiasts in the way of code, and share their own experience.
Dr. cycle, CEO of quarkchain, led the core leaders of each development business line to participate in the conference, participated in several developer workshops, conducted technical exchanges with other practitioners, and shared some experience in the development process and views on the current situation and future development direction of the industry.
Quarkchain and Ethereum 2.0 technical point of view highly coincide
In addition to popular topics such as difi and Dao organization, an important theme of the conference is the discussion of related topics of Ethereum 2.0. In order to solve the problems of previous expansion and high gas cost, the new version of Ethereum also chooses the same sharding technology as quarkchain, and will realize the same heterogeneous sharding as quarkchain in the future (different shards have different characteristics and functions) 。 It can be said that quarkchain and Ethereum share the same view on the development direction of sharding function.
For this reason, Dr. cycle held many in-depth discussions with the guests including V God on eth 1. X, ETH 2.0, and the new virtual machine that Ethereum will use in the future – ewasm.
At present, EVM virtual machine is used in Ethereum network, which carries all the token, DAPP, Dao and other functions in Ethereum. However, due to the low efficiency of EVM compilation will consume a lot of gas cost, Ethereum team proposed to use ewasm instead of EVM to improve work performance. At present, the main network of quarkchain uses EVM as its core virtual machine. However, depending on the heterogeneous sharding function of quarkchain, quarkchain can support different shards to use different virtual machines. Therefore, if the ewasm virtual machine goes online in the future, quarkchain can deploy it to its own network at the first time without affecting the operation of the whole network.
New concept of public chain
In order to communicate with more excellent developers and spread the concept of public chain technology, on the first night of the DevCon conference, quarkchain, together with harmony and Elrond, jointly held the “DevCon night of sharding” technology sharing offline meeting, introducing sharding, a blockchain expansion solution favored by various projects, to more developers and enthusiasts. In the activity, Dr. Periodie starts from the advantages of blockchain, analyzes the disadvantages of existing public chain projects, and proposes a more efficient, flexible and more compatible solution for these problems. This offline meeting has become a good supplement to the development of existing mainstream blockchain technology in addition to DevCon. Many participants also spoke highly of quarkchain’s technical solutions and thought that this design idea gave them new inspiration.
