The 1.x Files: EIP 1559 and the Ethereum Improvement Horizon

I’ve been thinking recently about post-apocalyptic wastelands. Specifically, about this scene from Mad Max: Fury Road, when the main characters have just escaped the first wave of pursuit, and are staying ahead of their would-be captors.

Some of this on a deep and technical level as I help communicate research and specifications to technical contributors, but more and more these days I’m fielding questions from the community about eth2 progress, direction, motivations, design decisions, delays, and more. I actually really...

Validated, staking on eth2: #4 - Keys 🔑

Signatures are used to verify the identity of each validator allowing their actions, both good and bad, to be attributed to them. We can verify honesty by looking at a validator’s signed messages and we can prove malice by showing messages that violate the rules of consensus. In fact, in eth2, the identity of a...

Ecosystem Support Program: Allocation Update, Q1 2020

The Ecosystem Support Program is an arm of the Ethereum Foundation dedicated to providing financial and non-financial support to projects working to help Ethereum grow and thrive. We recently published an update detailing how the Ecosystem Support Program spent 2019, and how we allocated financial support throughout the year. Going forward, we’ll be sharing allocation updates on a quarterly basis. 2020 got off to a strange and difficult start, but Ethereum’s builders have kept on building through it all. The...
