It’s official, Bowen, a core member of the open networking platform NEAR Protocol, has released a roadmap for the protocol, describing the work planned for the next 1-2 years. Deliveries this year include: Simple Nightshade to be divided into 8 slices, with EVM solution Aurora in its individual slice, which will increase total tps by 5-8x and potentially further reduce storage costs; increase the number of authentication nodes on the main network; and improve single slice performance. Deliveries in the coming years include: Gas price auctions; Nightshade; contract development improvements with plans to reduce the cost of contract calls and improve the developer experience.
