Client Team Updates


Confirming EIPs

  • EIP-3651: Warm COINBASE
  • EIP-3855: PUSH0 instruction
  • EIP-3860: Limit and meter initcode
  • EIP-170 is added as well because it was still missing
  • Regarding max code size
  • EIP-6049: Deprecate SELFDESTRUCT
  • EIP-4895: Beacon chain push withdrawals as operations** Gnosis modified. These need to be added to our specs repo
  • Nethermind: Started work on the shutter chain. Nothing specific to show yet. Running 50% Erigon nodes
  • Erigon: No updates
  • Geth: I got fullsync to kickstart after the database reconstruction: code was missing. I fixed this and now I am debugging the “system call” at the end of the block, where the block reward is distributed. Once this is fixed, and since it’s the last thing that gets executed in the block, fullsync should work.


  • Prysm: No updates.
  • Nimbus: No updates.

Chain Infra

Gateway : Nothing specific. Igor is participating in a hackathon today


No updates from Nethermind, Erigon or Gateway.
Nethermind, ran a tool that generates back blocks to test if the network handles them well. Everything is working well. Tests on Gnosis’ side; we haven’t tested a lot on our side yet. Defined a todo list of what we are going to test this week.


Shutterized Beacon Chain Being implemented as a Nethermind plugin


Hive Last week’s issue was solved. Related to geth being hardcoded. Trying to make this more universal. It was recalculating a hash instead of just taking one received by the API. Ensure that we reach the TTD. Generating some post-shanghai blocks. During each step, we check if the chain is working correctly. Should have some withdrawal tests for end of next week.Focused on integrating the withdrawal contract this week
