Client Team Updates


  • Nethermind:

    • Communications with the Shutter team
    • New version was released
      • This one isn’t downgradeable
    • New version early next year with the JSON-RPC improvements
      • Much better processing without state redesign as well
  • Erigon:

    • No updates
    • Was not able to reproduce the OOM in Docker issue
  • Geth:

    • No updates

Chain Infra

  • Gateway
    • No specific updates
    • Nethermind should send over a Docker image with the JSON-RPC changes so that it can be deployed by Gateway and be tested
      • Ideally this week or it will be moved to next year

Hive Tests

  • Solved issues with multi-clients from last week
  • Merged our branch with the upstream one, which caused issues
    • They are being looked into


  • Monitoring and investigating issues but no specific results
  • Restarting fast-synced nodes didn’t work but was fixed


  • Shutterized Beacon Chain
    • Nethermind had some questions regarding the transaction database (events or in-contract)
      • Seems like both teams are on the same page about drawbacks and consequences
