The Casper code—the improvement to the current economic consensus protocol in the Ethereum network—has finally been released by developers.
Last week, Casper the Friendly Finality Gadget (FFG) developer Danny Ryan, had posted the “first release” of the Casper v0.1 code on Github. According to Ryan:
“V0.1.0 marks us more clearly tagging releases to help clients and external auditors more easily track the contract and changes.”
On a Reddit post, Ryan continued on saying:
“More than just the research team is using the contract now—auditors, client devs, etc—so we wanted to start issuing clearer versioning and changelogs to help everyone stay organized.”
The Casper FFG was initially launched in October last year and had just now seen an update. The first launch had aimed at solving “open questions of economic finality through validator deposits and crypto-economic incentives.”
