Long-awaited “Tenderbake” Upgrade Revolutionizes the Tezos Blockchain

Tezos , one of the original and longest running Proof-of-Stake blockchains, has activated the ninth upgrade to the protocol, codenamed “Ithaca 2,” after being voted in by the Tezos community. Ithaca 2 replaces the current consensus algorithm (Emmy*) with Tenderbake – a revolutionary upgrade that sets the stage for a new era of innovation for the Tezos protocol. The new Tenderbake consensus algorithm enables lower block times, which will result in faster transactions and smoother-running applications on Tezos .

Designed to evolve, Tezos ’ advanced governance framework allows it to integrate cutting-edge innovations from across the blockchain industry through its proven self-amendment mechanism. For example, shielded transactions from the Zcash Sapling protocol were introduced in the Edo upgrade, and the consensus algorithm Tenderbake , based on Tendermint from the Cosmos protocol, was introduced in the latest Ithaca 2 upgrade. A scaling announcement from Tezos ecosystem developers in March 2022 outlined proposals for optimistic rollups modeled on Arbitrum, a popular rollup system on Ethereum, and zk-rollups based on leading industry research. With these regular upgrades, Tezos continues to provide both best-in-class core technology and leading features across privacy, scalability, and security.

Over the last year Tezos has seen booming growth in user activity, with smart contract calls increasing per month from 100,000 in January 2021 to over 6.2 million in January 2022.
