The Avalanche project’s core crew has upgraded the mainnet to Cortina


At 11 a.m. ET yesterday, Avalanche launched the Cortina update on its mainnet.

To further serve its developer community, Avalanche, a proof-of-stake blockchain created by Ava Labs, has launched the Cortina update on its mainnet.

Avalanche Go v1.10.0, the node implementation for the Avalanche network, was updated at Cortina yesterday at around 11 a.m. ET.

Since the whole network is now using the same consensus engine, the X-Chain was converted as part of the Cortina update so that it can run the Snowman++ consensus. Integrating Avalanche Warp Messaging (AWM) and allowing complicated X-Chain transactions both need this update.

In order to facilitate the generation and administration of native Avalanche assets, the X-Chain was developed.

The C-Chain, the layer of smart contracts compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine, also underwent modifications as part of the update. To allow for the implementation of more complicated dApps on the network, Cortina raised the C-Chain block gas limit from 8 million to 15 million gas. The network’s gas consumption goal, or “gas target,” will remain steady at 15 million gas per 10 seconds.

The improvement is timed to coincide with a revival on the C-Chain, where most transactions take place. Avalanche block explorer SnowTrace indicates that daily transactions have been more than 3 times this year compared to the same time last year, after a large fall towards the end of 2022.
