Dan Larimer will fork the EOSIO codebase into a new repository called Mandel with the help of his team as well as we can see more in today’s EOS news today.
After voting to halt payments to Block.One due to the lack of financial transparency and slow progress, the EOS community will take control of the technical development of the chain. According to the press release, the EOS community will work under the guidance of the EOS Network Foundation and Dan Larimer. The development came troubles between the ENF and Block.one which has been brewing for a while now but with the company out of the picture and the EN taking the reigns, Larimer has a lot of plans for the EOS ecosystem.
The executive will work towards creating technical independence from Block.one but to achieve it, as the EOS network founder collaborated with the ClarionOS team on the Mandel codebase that aims to replace the EOS old code. Larimer and his team will fork the EOSIO codebase into Mandel and there will be two major upgrades dubbed Mandel 2.3 which is the successor of EOSIO 2.2 and then Mandel 3.0.
The announcement mentioned that Mandel 3.0 candidate will be released at the end of January and it was made possible after Larimer received a fund of 200,000 eOS from the ENF. According to Larimer, the Mandel code fork is the shortest way to independence. While revealing that this is a step in the direction of the multi-year plan to enhance EOS, the executive added:
“I’m excited to partner with the ENF and I have never been more optimistic about the future vision for EOS. It is on the path to becoming the DAO of DAOs where new users won’t have to pay for accounts and countless people will be rewarded for contributing and inviting others who do the same!”
Last year, the company was blamed for mismanagement and abandonment. The relationship between the community and Block.one turned sour due to several reasons. The EOS community accused that the company did little to increase the growth of the ecosystem and failed to deliver promises like the network reaching a million transactions per second. The release of 1000 decentralized applications is still a distant plan but the development of the inter-blockchain communication solution was not in sight. Everything went downhill after the EOSIO software creators announced they were selling 45 million EOS tokens to Helios VC.
