Introducing IoTeX Mainnet v1.3, the next evolution of the IoTeX blockchain! Mainnet v1.3 is now LIVE as of block height 12,289,321 — thanks to our global network of Delegates that have upgraded their nodes to the best version of iotex-core yet.
This major network upgrade brings the latest EVM Istanbul to IoTeX and supports all Web3 DApps with minimized gas costs for storage + zk-SNARKs computations. Mainnet v1.3 complements the full Web3-compatibility introduced via Mainnet v1.2 in June 2021. Together, IoTeX is now one of the most robust, flexible, and user/dev-friendly blockchains in the industry.
