Altair is right here; The merger is coming.

Altair Improve, October 27

Altair to be Beacon Chain’s first mainnet improve epoch set to 74240 (Oct 27, 2021, 10:56:23 AM UTC).

A refined however large benefit of proof-of-stake is that we are able to improve at the very same time (sorry Tim! We’ll be rolling out proof-of-work quickly 😉 )

This improve brings lite-client assist for core consensus, cleans up Beacon state incentive accounting, fixes some points with validator incentives, and will increase penalty norms. As per EIP-2982,

Many because of the shopper groups for engaged on this all year long

Preserve your eyes peeled for an additional blogpost on Monday, October 4th. This may embody all mainnet Altair releases.

After which you’ll be able to improve your nodes!

merge interop specs and upcoming devnets

merge interop spec Launched on Friday. This “meta-spec” supplies engineers with secure targets for testing and the preliminary wave of DevNet.

After a flurry of specification exercise over the previous few months, the merge specs are nearing function completion, and the core logic is secure. On this subsequent section, engineers will construct merge logic and check their software program with different groups on short-lived DevNets. Engineers will study the specs as they exist at this time and supply dynamic suggestions to the specs to refine and/or repair issues as they come up.

On the high of the checklist is validation and refinement Merge Engine API and prototyping and specifying completely different variations of Sync beneath the merge paradigm.

It has been years within the making from proof-of-stake to proof-of-work, and we’re simply as excited as you’re to see it in motion. October will probably be quite a lot of enjoyable 🚀🏺
