Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – April 25, 2023) – The EOS Network Foundation (EFN) is excited to announce the release of Antelope Leap v4.0.0, the open-source software that allows anyone to operate a node on Antelope blockchain networks like EOS.

Due to it’s reputation as a leading platform for blockchain projects that prioritize performance, scalability, and reliability, EOS quickly spawned other networks built on its underlying technology, called Antelope.

In 2021, EOS transitioned to a community led model with the formation of the EOS Network Foundation (ENF). In 2022, the ENF stewarded the formation of the Antelope coalition, together with three other leading blockchain networks built on Antelope, Telos, UX Network and WAX. Since then, the ENF has delivered a non-stop stream of exciting developments for the open-source codebase of both EOS and Antelope.

Today’s release of Leap v4.0.0 is focused on optimizing node performance. This article dives into some of the important enhancements in this major release.

Higher Performance with Multi-Threading Features

  • Leap v4.0.0 includes two new features to take advantage of multi-core architecturesSHiP multi-threading
  • Parallelized speculative read-only transaction execution

By allowing multi-threaded processing of state history plugin client requests, the main application thread is freed up to perform other computations that must be performed serially. Parallelizing read-only transaction execution improves the performance, allows processing of this class of transactions in multiple threads, and introduces a new read-only transaction RPC endpoint. Together, these features empower improved overall node performance.

Reduced Latency and Faster Block Propagation

Leap v4.0.0 includes two new features to make block propagation even faster:

  • Schedule based auto-peering
  • Lighter validation for block relays.

By giving Block Producers the ability to automatically manage connections based on the Block Producer schedule, nodes that are in schedule proximity are more likely to be peers. This ensures the shortest relay path for a block to the next Block Producer that depends on it.

With lighter validation for block relays, nodes are enabled to relay blocks before fully validating or computing state, as long as certain conditions are met. This can reduce the time it takes for new blocks to be propagated across the network, leading to faster confirmation times and improved system performance.

More Control and Visibility Around State and History Data

Leap v4.0.0 includes a stable of features that provide more flexible access to data. This includes:

  • A snapshot Scheduling API
  • A prometheus exporter for monitoring
  • Dynamic log splitting.

The Snapshot Scheduling API allows users to schedule and manage snapshot requests in advance, increasing reliability and reducing the potential for errors in the snapshot creation process. At the same time, it allows for greater flexibility in creating and managing snapshots.

The Prometheus Exporter Plugin provides instrumentation of nodeos to expose data with Prometheus. The initial phase of instrumentation will allow for the evaluation of the usability of the instrumentation when viewed from Prometheus.

Dynamic log splitting is really two separate but similar features:

  • Blocks log splitting
  • SHiP log splitting.

Both give node operators greater control over how logs are managed. The key benefit is that node operators are able to specify how many split log files to retain, and nodeos will automate aging out older logs by deleting them or moving them to another directory.

Upgrade Infrastructure and Leap Forward With Antelope Leap v4.0.0

The release of Leap v4.0.0 is an important milestone for both EOS and the entire Antelope ecosystem, enabling features such as:

  • Higher Performance with Multi-Threading
  • Reduced Latency and Faster Block Propagation
  • More Control and Visibility Around State and History Data

Node operators should ensure that they upgrade in a timely manner to ensure compatibility with other pieces of network infrastructure. Full details can be found in the Antelope Leap GitHub repository.

FreeBnk, the fintech platform offering affordable financial services for crypto investors, launches its tokenized RWA (real-world asset) platform to enable its clients to invest in real estate through fractionalized ownership. Through FreeBnk’s app, clients can effortlessly purchase shares of the first property located in Dubai, democratizing real estate investing by eliminating traditional barriers such as complex paperwork, similar to the seamless experience of browsing and investing on Zillow. Investors of FreeBnk’s tokenized RWAs will receive a 15 percent annual return and a 9 percent rental return from their investment.

Tokenized RWAs have exploded in demand within the digital asset ecosystem, drawing interest from both crypto investors and traditional financial institutions. This sector has become one of the largest in DeFi, with DEX volume experiencing substantial growth from $2.3 billion in December 2024 to $3.6 billion by April 2024. Amidst the escalating global cost of living, tokenized RWAs emerge as an alternative and more accessible investment option offering potentially higher returns, democratizing access to market-proof assets. However, the UI and UX continue to be complex and unfriendly for users unfamiliar with these platforms.

With the launch of its new platform, FreeBnk simplifies wealth-building opportunities by offering ownership shares in properties for potentially generating passive income. Now live within its native mobile app, the decentralized application (dApp) removes the complexities of property ownership, enabling investors to readily enter the tokenized RWA sector. The process involves three straightforward steps:

Search properties: Through the FreeBnk app, users will be able to explore properties, filtering by type, ROI, and yield—allowing investors to align their property investments precisely with their financial objectives.
Buy shares: Users will be able to select their desired property and invest any amount in a few, simple steps. FreeBnk helps to bypass traditional real estate processes and manages all aspects of property ownership using smart contracts.
Earn rental income: FreeBnk automatically assigns a property portfolio to its customers, taking care of all real estate management responsibilities. This service includes collecting and depositing rental income directly into the client’s accounts.
Clients ready to capitalize on property appreciation can conveniently sell their shares at any time through FreeBnk’s secondary market. FreeBnk is committed to offering top-quality real estate, already investing over 250,000 AED into its first property. As a hub for innovation and growth, Dubai sets the stage for global expansion with its growing real estate market and investor-friendly environment.

“As we look ahead, we see the potential of tokenized RWAs and the positive ways in which they can revolutionize the real estate market through fractional ownership,” says Yunus Emre Ozkaya, CEO of FreeBnk. “By tokenizing properties, our goal is to empower investors across the globe, showcasing the unique benefits of tokenized RWAs and offering new avenues for investment. Real estate, known for its relative stability, provides a passive income opportunity amidst global economic fluctuations. We aim to cater not only to crypto enthusiasts but also to newcomers seeking alternative investment options.”
