Local Grants Honduras & Colombia Roundup [ENG/ESP]

Ethereum is very much a global community, but within that larger ecosystem lives a vast and vibrant web of local, grassroots communities. These local community nodes are a Schelling point for thousands of Ethereans, often organized around a shared geography, language, or on-the-ground meetup. They’re also a gateway for onboarding thousands of soon-to-be Ethereans, be it through meetups, talks, hackathons, study groups, and the like. Which means they’re home to countless opportunities for growing the ecosystem. As such, the Ethereum...

Geth v1.10.0

Oh wow, it’s been a while… over 1.5 years since we’ve released Geth v1.9.0. We did do 26 point releases in that time frame (about one per three weeks), but pushing out a major release is always a bit more special. The adrenaline rush of shipping new features, coupled with the fear of something going horribly wrong. Still unsure if I like it or hate it. Either way, Ethereum is evolving and we need to push the envelope to keep...

We are incredibly excited to celebrate these achievements with all of you at Devcon in Bogota soon.

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. The launch was a resounding success, and the operation of the beacon chain has proved, thus far, stable and robust. As I write these words, the beacon chain is live with more than 2.5M ETH securing its consensus. So this is the “state of eth2” today. But what’s next? What’s on the horizon, and where...
