Client Team Updates


  • Nethermind: Working on the shapella todo list. They will take a look at the new contract.

  • Erigon: No updates.

  • Geth: No updates.


  • Prysm: No updates.
  • Nimbus: No updates.

Chain Infra

Gateway : Fixed the launchpad.


GNew contract: Audit in progress Very basic


  • New devnet

    • 50/50 Nethermind + Erigon
  • Shadowfork Be careful with the contract upgrades because we can get replayed. What are we trying to achieve with this fork? What are the questions we want to answer? We can also disregard this but spam the devnet with a lot of transactions instead so we have more accurate blocks instead of empty ones. The way it worked for Ethereum. Sync mainnet and stop ELs on some block. Take that hash in the beacon chain genesis. Spin up a new beacon chain with shapella scheduled. We also need to upgrade the contract. We can get replayed. We can also deploy the contracts now. (before the shadow fork) As long as we coordinate around deposit UI changes.

  • Upgrade contract on Chiado Deposit UIs

  • Mainnet Make sure that enough core devs are available because the holiday season is going to start


Added more tests to the previous suites. Everything is working. Started to add Erigon, Marcos is in touch with Andrew to fix remaining issues
