Client Team Updates


  • Nethermind:

    • No updates
  • Erigon:

    • No updates
  • Geth:

    • Was able to sync the whole mainnet up to the head block
    • However, none of the progress is getting saved to the database, so restarting the node requires a new sync every time. It also restarts after a full sync.
      • Probably related to the difficulty. Geth seems to expect the difficulty to be the TTD rather than an empty array.
      • This is likely the last issue to fix

Chain Infra

  • Gateway
    • worked on enabling eth_getProof on our Gnosis RPC by forwarding it to the Nethermind nodes, at least for certain customers
    • genome (.gno domains) infra is ready, we are waiting for them to complete whatever legalities

Hive Tests

  • Having some issues with fees regarding blobs


  • Added 3 Erigon nodes
    • No issues for now
  • Started transaction fuzzers
    • Already had blob generators
  • Some reorgs are happening, but all nodes fixed themselves (both Erigon and Nethermind)
  • Might have a fix ready for the Nethermind syncing issue but are still testing
  • eth/68 issue potentially resolved as well
