Parity Technologies has added an early version of ethereum's hotly anticipated Casper code change to its blockchain development platform, Substrate.
A resurgence of debate surrounding fund recovery on the ethereum network shows the topic is still as divisive as ever.
Parity, the ethereum software client, has announced some major changes, including the stripping away of its graphical user interface (GUI).
Ethereum uses transparency as part of its security but potential problems with data exposure are now being addressed.
A critical bug was found in Parity's software within a testing environment and users are hurrying to update so it doesn't affect the mainnet.
Less than a year since Casper was formalized, ethereum clients are starting to test a smart contract for the network's big consensus change.
Parity Technologies and Web3 Foundation will soon launch the first proof-of-concept of their blockchain interoperability protocol, Polkadot.
Developer Preethi Kasireddy believes what the ethereum community decides to do in terms of fund recovery will be the network's "defining moment."
Parity Technologies has said it has no plans to move forward with a code change that would result in an ethereum blockchain split.
Parity is set on implementing their new proposal to recover frozen funds, and ethereum devs are worried there's nothing to stop a blockchain split.
