Client Team Updates


  • Nethermind:
    Exploring Shutter and waiting for some answers
    Probably going to release a new version of Nethermind end of this week
  • Erigon:
    No updates
  • Geth:
    Found the previous problem thanks to Somnath
    The contracts weren’t properly imported, but the logic works correctly
    Was able to sync 145k blocks
    After this, one transaction has an invalid gas usage (more expensive on geth)
    Comparing traces as we speak
    Has to rebuild the current state (~14 hours)
    Needs access to an S3 bucket in order not to have to sync from scratch constantly
    Implemented the withdrawal contract to be able to go through the transition once it gets there

Chain Infra

  • Gateway
    No one present


  • Devnets
  • Empty system address?
    We’ll try to send a few wei to the system account on Chiado first
  • Devnets
    Carlos is preparing configurations for the devnet
    Should be ready for end of this week or start of the next one
    Working on the max churn limit

Hive Tests

Started working on the dencun tests
As soon as tests are ready, they’ll be shown in the dashboard
Work on upstreaming will be done after dencun tests are implemented
Somnath can help for that
Will speak with Egor about adding older Hive tests


  • AuRa contracts
    Should be cleaned up
    Jorge was exploring this topic but gave up
    Marek will ask him about his opinion
    Will we have the same address or a different one?
    We should be able to create it at the same address
    Worst case we can just hardcode it in the genesis file (ideally CREATE2 though)
    Guillaume asked Matt
    Might rely on a dependency on EF, in which case we can just make the address configurable and deploy it with our own keys
  • Are legacy transactions disabled?
    Might still be enabled in Erigon, but not in Geth and Nethermind?
    Andrew will check
    Geth disabled legacy transactions (without chain id) in the transaction pool, but still accepts them in the block
