Mint and configure tokens and accounts.
Hedera has an audacious but simple vision: to build a trusted, secure, and empowered digital future for all.
Enable support for ECDSA(secp256k1) cryptography (HIP-222).
New way to create accounts on Hedera using a public key (HIP-32).
On wire token decimal information by splitting the amount field in token transfers into a whole and fractional part (HIP-31).
Improve the Hedera Smart Contract Service performance using Hyperledger Besu EVM.
Changes transaction throttling for Smart Contracts to be based on gas usage and reservations (HIP-185).
Allow Hedera Smart Contracts to transfer, mint, burn, associate, and dissociate tokens programmatically (HIP-206).
Allow clients and SDKs to sign transactions with external programs, devices, and services. (HIP-179).
Provides community and users more visibility by adding support to view and make staking elections, smart contract traceability, transaction explorer, and dapps insights.
Let a smart contract be deployed to a predictable address on Hedera (HIP-329).
A complete and compact library for interacting with the EVM and its ecosystem on Hedera.
Allowances grant another account the right to transfer hbar, fungible, and non-fungible tokens from your account (HIP-336).
Ownership of fungible and non-fungible tokens by a smart contract.
Allow the Hedera Smart Contracts to interact with Token Service accounts as though they were ERC-20 and ERC-721 accounts (HIP-218).
Support big data size volume between consensus and mirror nodes.
Nodes on the Hedera mainnet, testnet, and previewnet will have further reduced downtime windows for network maintenance.
Development of deployment tools for Hedera Smart Contracts.
Enable expirations and renewal of Smart Contracts on Hedera.
Improving network security by enabling protocol level staking to the nodes and then subsequently using these stakes to weigh the consensus.
Extends the capability of scheduled transactions to support executing transactions at an arbitrary time in the future and allowing more types of transactions to be scheduled (HIP-423).
The protocol improves gossip scalability by improving synchronization, re-establishment, negotiation, and handling of orphan events and tasks.
Improves the usability, auditability, and debuggability of smart contract transactions by providing traceability into smart contract internal calls and state changes (HIP-260).
Provide record stream to externalize the state changes associated with the lifecycle of smart contracts (HIP-449).
Improve network scale and enable support for theoretically unlimited NFTs by adopting merkle structure.
Improves performance and costs of smart contract operations by enabling a smart contract call to specify the keys that will be accessed, allowing them to be pre-warmed, and cost less than a cold read.
Support for the Swift programming language.
Creating RPC support so that dapps, tools, and services can communicate between Hedera and other EVM compatible chains (HIP-410).
Enabling additional behaviors and capabilities in HTS to natively support use-cases from ESG, Finance, Gaming, Securitization, etc (HIP-410).
As part of broader RPC support, adding mechanisms to support a block construct thereby improving compatibility with tools and services from other EVM compatible chains (HIP-415).
Provisions new transaction and precompiles to provide a native capability to dapps such as Gaming and NFT collections to generate a pseudo-random number (HIP-351).
Improves creation and operation of Scheduled transactions by permitting duplicate identical scheduled transaction and merging the provided signatures into the same scheduled transaction (HIP-173).
Support for more NFT IDs and additional entities on Hedera.
Continue on Hedera’s path to decentralization through the introduction of a set of permissioned, community-run mainnet nodes.
Hedera improvement proposals for tokenization and decentralized identity standards and functionalities.
