  • Working on internal dencun specific things for Gnosis
  • Right now 4844 variables are hardcoded in Nethermind and they’re working on making this configurable
  • A new release candidate is underway, majorly integrating cancun features along with some fixes.

Erigon: No one present


  • Not much progress since last week, mostly investigating
  • 2 branches
    • One that extracts the data from the Nethermind DB and creates the DB to use by the next branch
      • Figured out why it was running out of memory: memory leak in the transaction pool, but didn’t spend too much debugging because of the new branch
    • One that is more modern and supports withdrawals, but doesn’t currently sync.
      • Has issues connecting to other nodes in the network.

Chain Infra

Gateway No one present

Hive Tests

  • Fixed the withdrawal issues after merge.
  • Working on the dencun tests.


  • The devnet nodes have been stable and the network is finalizing
  • Lighthouse requires the preset to be built in?
  • The blob transaction spammer has some issues, it would be better to try to internal Nethermind tool
  • Running with the min gas per blob preset since Friday
  • Two more parameters need to be updated, and we need to spin up a new devnet with Erigon from the get go
