  • Nethermind:
    Started developing the shutter implementation
  • Erigon:

    Confirmed that the initial state root is correct
    Confirmed that updates to the state are correct
    Alternatives explored
    Test on Chiado because the state is way smaller
    Getting two consecutive states from Chiado, which archive nodes can’t easily do
