The Long(er) road to Devcon [ENG/ESP]

The State of Eth2, Jan 2021 [ENG/普通话]

At the start of December, the Ethereum community bootstrapped the new beacon chain proof-of-stake consensus mechanism – the foundation of Ethereum’s long-term and sustainable home.

Validated, staking on eth2: #6 - Perfect is the enemy of the good

T'was the day before genesis, when all was prepared, geth was in sync, my beacon node paired. Firewalls configured, VLANs galore, hours of preparation meant nothing ignored. Then all at once everything went awry, the SSD in my system decided to die. My configs were gone, chain data was history, nothing to do but trust in next day delivery. I found myself designing backups and redundancies. Complicated systems consumed my fantasies. Thinking further I came to realise: worrying about these... [Read More]

EF-Supported Teams: Research & Development Update
