NANO ‘Boulton’ Blockchain Node Software’s Upcoming Upgrade Promises Plenty of New Features
As many of our readers may already know, Nano, the firm behind popular wallet-solution Ledger, has announced that its upcoming node update will provide customers with a whole host of new features and technical improvements. The latest update has been dubbed ‘Boulton’ and it is being estimated that the release date for this latest patch will be sometime in the near future.
A More Detailed Look At The Upcoming Release
Out of all the features that are being hyped in relation to Boulton, most analysts are looking forward to the introduction of the ‘lazy bootstrapping’ module that will allow Nano’s native OS to substantially increase its ledger update efficiency. To further elaborate on the matter, we can see that via bootstrapping, the Nano network is able to scale up, even as more and more nodes are added to the ecosystem.
Not only that, ‘lazy bootstrapping’ also presents users with a highly efficient method of adding blocks to a ledger in bulk (as a result of which, the overall CPU and bandwidth usage of each individual node can be decreased quite substantially).
Apart from the aforementioned updates, Boulton will also usher in a series of other technical developments which interested users can check out by clicking on the following link.
It is also worth bringing to everyone’s notice that Nano recently launched a beta version of its native video-game offering called ‘NanoQuake2’ (which is a Yamagi Quake2 style RPG that comes built into the Nano Wallet). When playing NanoQuake 2, users have the chance to earn rewards for each individual kill and wins.
Lastly, a lot of people within the global crypto community are also hoping that Nano is able to get its native token offering listed on Coinbase (something which will further establish the firm’s street-cred within today’s burgeoning crypto ecosystem).
