Blockshow Asia is a Blockchain conference held in Singapore and powered by Cointelegraph that is designed to allow participants to network and partner with high-profile people within the blockchain community.
EOS, an Ethereum-based DApp platform, kicked off the event with an important announcement where they revealed a new testing platform called STAT (Single-Thread Application Testnet), which is publicly available and maintained by Block.One.
STAT could be used by developers to test their DApps and by producers to evaluate the EOS.IO platform. Important features include:
- technical improvements – reducing block times to just one second from the previous 3 seconds and increasing the expected transaction speed between 500 and 1000 per second
- the platform simulates the EOS production environment that is due to be released mid-2018
- addition of a multi-thread application Testnet (MAT), due June 2018
The EOS team has created a developer API along with a GitHub repository that shows developers how to get started on the testnet.
