Eth News and Links

Eth1

  • Retesteth v0.9, test suite for the Berlin hard fork
  • Latest core devs call. Notes from Tim Beiko. The BLS12-381 precompile (eip2537) is likely not going to be in the next hard fork, which is due in q1 2021. Fork tentatively is: EIP2315 (evm subroutines), EIP2929 (state access gas increase), EIP2718 (typed transaction envelope), EIP2930 (optional access lists) and EIP2565 (modexp precompile gas repricing)

This newsletter is made possible thanks to Trail of Bits!

Good idea, bad design: How the Diamond standard falls short. We audited an implementation of the Diamond upgradeability proposal and can’t recommend it in its current form. It’s a laudable undertaking, but the Diamond proposal and its implementation raise many concerns. Still, there’s plenty to learn from it.

It’s no secret that I think podcasts are (much) better businesses than newsletters. So if you want to support the newsletter, download and subscribe to my podcast!

Taylor and I had a fun chat about the latest in DeFi, please check it out and leave a review on your podcasting app of choice. I think you’ll like it.

If you’re wondering “why didn’t my post make it into Week in Ethereum News,” then please put it on an Ethereum subreddit; emails/DMs are not part of my workflow.
