Chiado's Dencun Hardfork

January 10, 2024

Gnosis Chain core devs continuously push upgrades from the Ethereum mainnet onto Gnosis Chain. The most immediate is the Dencun upgrade, which will be synchronised with the Ethereum roadmap. As the first initial step towards completing the upgrade, Gnosis Chain's Chiado testnet will hard fork on 31 January 2024 at 18:15:40 UTC, Slot: 8265728 Epoch: 516608

Which EIPs will be implemented on Gnosis Chain?

EIP - 1153: Transient storage opcodes
EIP - 4788: Beacon block root in the EVM
EIP - 4844: Shard Blob Transactions
EIP - 7516: BLOBBASEFEE opcode
EIP - 5656: MCOPY - Memory copying instruction
EIP - 6780: SELFDESTRUCT only in same transaction

The most important feature of the upgrade enables blobs (EIP - 4844 Proto-Danksharding), which will enable L2 chains to scale and provide a cheaper data layer.

What do you need to do?

If you're a validator on Chiado, the upgrade requires some steps to prepare your nodes. We’ll release client versions in the coming days, and you also need approximately 35GB of additional storage for blobs.
