VeChain (VET), the Singapore-based project powered by distributed ledger technology (DLT), has recently announced the release of the new version of VeChain Thor blockchain.
According to the report, VeChain Thor version 1.3.3 is meant for maintenance that brings about the improvement of performance, for better user experience.
This update promises to fix issues with bugs, such as the bugs encountered in the course of the production of blocks on the blockchain.
As per the details shared on Github, the new version will notably transform VeChain network’s customnet, to accept bigint in a hexadecimal string.
What Support for Bigint Will To the Blockchain Network
The support for bigint in a hexadecimal string will give room to the blockchain network to support transactions involving integer values larger than the range supported by the Number data type.
Also, Bigint allows programs to securely perform arithmetic operations on large integers, use large integer IDs, represent high-resolution timestamps, and others.
Moreover, the newly released version of VeChain Thor blockchain will bring improvement to the solo in on-demand mode. It as well fixes the bug that sometimes forces the master node to ignore the better block, when it concurrently receives 2 or more blocks with the same number.
Conclusively, the update as well improves the current API version of the VeChain Thor blockchain to version 1.3.2, which notably improves the app that accesses the data on the Thor network.
Meanwhile, Herald Sheets had a few days ago reported that Real Items, an enterprise and consumer application built on VeChain blockchain, revealed why VeChain was chosen to verify NK95 masks made to curtail the spread of COVID-19.
There, Real Items professed that VeChain was chosen because it’s the only blockchain that works for enterprise at scale.
