Only 15 days remain before the mainnet update to EOSIO v1.8 and already most BPs are ready to go. According to EOS Nation, 25/30 BPs have already passed all checks needed for the upgrade, while only 5/30 BPs have committed themselves for September 23 but are not yet ready.
This release marks major enhancements for EOSIO paving the way for a more secure and scalable future for EOSIO based blockchains, and it's a key update for the release of VOICE.
"This is the largest upgrade to the EOS Mainnet since it was launched, and the first to require a hard fork. It requires coordination and collaboration between node operators and dApp developers across the globe."
