Jeff Horseman got into journalism because he liked to write and stunk at math. He grew up in Vermont and he honed his interviewing skills as a supermarket cashier by asking Bernie Sanders “Paper or plastic?” After graduating from Syracuse University in 1999, Jeff began his journalistic odyssey at The Watertown Daily Times in upstate New York, where he impressed then-U.S. Senate candidate Hillary Clinton so much she called him “John” at the end of an interview. From there, he went to Annapolis, Maryland, where he covered city, county and state government at The Capital newspaper. Today, Jeff writes about anything and everything. Along the way, Jeff has covered wildfires, a tropical storm, 9/11 and the Dec. 2 terror attack in San Bernardino. If you have a question or story idea about politics or the inner workings of government, please let Jeff know. He’ll do his best to answer, even if it involves a little math.
  • BlockSec has released Phalcon Fork, a toolkit for collaborative testing on private chains.
  • Phalcon Fork enables Web3 users to analyze, transact, and debug
  • BlockSec plans to support multiple blockchains in the future.

BlockSec, a blockchain and Web3 security firm, announced the release of Phalcon Fork, a toolkit enabling Web3 users to conduct collaborative testing on private chains forked from any position. With this toolkit, users can test and ensure the security of their private chains with the help of a collaborative testing approach.

Phalcon Fork is a development designed to provide advanced control to Web3 users working on test nets. It enables users to quickly analyze, transact, and debug by forking arbitrary positions and block numbers while retaining specific services and states from the Ethereum (ETH) mainnet. This feature gives developers greater control and facilitates rapid integration and debugging with other DeFi contracts.

The tool kit offers several advantages over traditional designs. Firstly, blockchain users can access services and attain states from the mainnet. This allows for a seamless and efficient user experience. Additionally, users have complete control over block information, ensuring their data is secure and private.

BlockSec Plans Multi-Blockchain Support

Phalcon Fork also enables users to utilize snapshots, which record the transactions being executed and deployed by the user at a given time. This feature is particularly useful during testing, allowing users to save certain blockchain positions and revert to them at will.

Currently, it is impossible to fork from any other Ethereum network. However, BlockSec has hinted at future support for BNB Smart Chain and Arbitrum. This allows developers to test their DeFi contracts on multiple blockchains.

On April 12, the Ethereum Shanghai update was released, and alongside it came the release of the Phalcon Fork toolset. This toolset enables token holders on the Beacon Chain to withdraw their staked Ethereum.

These developments offer exciting opportunities for developers and token holders as they expand the possibilities of testing and accessing Ethereum-based resources.
