EOS Raises RAM Supply to Lower the Cost


EOS Block Producers Vote to Raise RAM Supply to Lower Cost of Running dApps As a hedge against speculators crowding out developers, block producers have the authority to vote to add new RAM to the network, which they have now done for the first time. Prior to the upgrade, the EOS network had a RAM capacity of 64GB. Now, that capacity will increase by 1kb per block (~120kb per minute) until it reaches 128GB. At the time of writing, 15 of the 21 active block producers had approved the resolution while the other six organizations, including cryptocurrency exchanges Bitfinex and Huobi, had abstained from voting. However, just 15 votes were needed to pass the resolution, and it has already gone into effect.
