No need to update the system call signature in the end. We’re tracking the withdrawal ID internally.


Who’s running the nodes? Gateway?

  • Gateway runs Nethermind + Lighthouse
  • Nethermind 2k?
  • Gnosis 2k?


Mempool Transactions that are way too expensive to be executed and can’t be replaced Transactions that are too cheap and will never be executable Small oversight because it’s a local transaction, but shouldn’t be an issue Nethermind will fix this, but it’s no big deal Will get evicted if a more appropriate transaction comes in


Hive: Good progress pre and post-shanghai. Implement tests for post-shanghai scenarios. Syncing status: Producing blocks and sending transactions. Verified that withdrawals work like expected. Not getting the expected results. But the root is built correctly and the withdrawals are indeed being executed. Later (timeline: 2-3 weeks) Block reorgs and syncing issues. Edge cases: Integrate Erigon. Making sure that everything integrated with Nethermind also works with Erigon.
