This week we’ve compiled a list of all the most critical resources ahead of Gnosis Beacon Chain/Gnosis Chain merge. If you’re a node runner you’ll want to pay close attention. The Merge is currently scheduled for ~ Wednesday the 7th of December 2022. Please be sure to update your nodes before November 30th.
Let’s go! 🚀👇🚀👇🚀👇
Gnosis is released its first official merge-ready clients on Nov 23rd, 2022 in preparation for the Merge (scheduled ~7th December 2022).
Community members are encouraged to upgrade their clients by the Bellatrix epoch on 30th November, and will need to run both an Execution Layer (EL) client and a Consensus Layer client (CL).
Execution Layer client
✅ Nethermind 1.14.6: https://github.com/NethermindEth/nethermind/releases/tag/1.14.6
Consensus Layer client
✅ Teku v22.11.0: https://github.com/ConsenSys/teku/releases/tag/22.11.0
✅ Lodestar v1.2.2: https://github.com/ChainSafe/lodestar/releases/tag/v1.2.2
🟡 Lighthouse: coming soon
🟡 Nimbus: coming soon
❌ Prysm: advised to switch to other clients
🟡 Dappnode images: coming soon
Validators running Prysm should be prepared to switch to one of the merge ready clients, as a Gnosis-compatible Prysm will not be available pre-merge. Instructions for switching from Prysm to a new client are available here: https://docs.prylabs.network/docs/advanced/switch-clients
Merge Details: https://docs.gnosischain.com/specs/hard-forks/merge
Update your nodes before November 30th
Validators running Prylabs take note ~ your nodes are not compatible pre-merge! You must switch to a new client. More info below 👇👇👇

Project Updates 🦉
MakerDAO adds $GNO
In coordination with Karpatkey, GnosisDAO recently authored a post on the Maker Forum proposing to lock $GNO in a new Maker Vault. The Maker Vault is a core component of the Maker Protocol, which facilitates the generation of Dai against locked up collateral. Vault usage collectively alters the total supply of Dai. Users create Dai by generating it against their collateral and in-turn destroy Dai when repaying their generated Dai balance. The Dai generated from the $GNO vault will be used to support the Gnosis Chain ecosystem.

🏔 of the Week
A few weekly tidbits highlighting regular goings on.
🏘 DAO of the Week: Opolis
Opolis is a digital employment cooperative that allows independent workers to “own their employment”.
Opolis members enjoy benefits packages that are typically only available through traditional employment. As a cooperative, Opolis can compete with the public exchange while offering payroll, health, dental, vision, 401K, HSA and FSA benefits.
Opolis is structured as a C-corp with an “employment DAO” commons underpinned by permissioned membership and the $WORK token. Tokenized rewards are available to members who utilize the service and refer friends.
They currently serve members in the USA, with service expanding to Canada next year.

It’s been quite a start to the World Cup so far. With the Argentina upset, bettors are definitely starting to take advantage of the underdogs. Germany - Japan was another controversial upset, and bettors did take full advantage. We had numerous bets for Japan with odds well above 6; bettors are definitely enjoying the biggest sporting event of the year!
