Ethereum Bulletin #56


Goerli have finalized

Goerli was the last testnet that have finally transitioned itself to Proof of Stake consensus protocol after merging to the Prater chain. There was some confusion on the network because of two different terminal blocks and lots of non-updated nodes, so it didn't finalize earlier. All in all it was a success.

Below are some sources to predict the outcomes of the Goerli/Prater merge.

Guide on using Nethermind after the Merge

After the merge of the Ethereum mainnet with the beacon chain there will be a need to running two nodes simultaneously for the validators to validate the network. Hence for the same cause Netheremind has summed up the complete process of setting up and running the node after the merge transition. You can check it out here.

Introducing Ingonyama - zk proofs

Ingonyama (meaning Lion in Zulu) believes that cryptography has high computational demands that require increased use of specialized hardware acceleration. Creating a more cost-effective base layer of Zero Knowledge Proofs is key to their widespread adoption. For the aforementioned sake, they have released a blog post Lowering the Barrier of Entry to Zero Knowledge Proofs clearing the various doubts about the zk proofs and mentioned their goals and objectives for the future.

Metamask incorporates new changes

This new metamask extension will enable you to truly consent to any dapp's requests. It makes it much easier to know when you're granting access to ALL of your NFTs within the same collection.One of our most important initiatives is ensuring you know what you're signing *before* you sign it. They have introduced a few more things which you can check out in the thread below.

Overview of Scroll's Roller Network

The Rollers serve as provers in the network that are responsible for generating validity proofs for the zkRollup. Rollers are expected to utilize accelerators such as GPUs, FPGAs, and ASICs to reduce the proving time and proving cost. Figure 2 shows how a Roller generates the validity proof for each block. Learn more about the network below.

Magic Eden Wants to Build an ApeCoin NFT Marketplace Just for Bored Apes

Magic Eden has unveiled a proposal to build a Bored Ape Yacht Club marketplace for the ApeCoin community. The marketplace would operate via the official ApeCoin website and be based on Magic Eden's technology. Bored Ape NFT holders would receive benefits such as lower trading fees. Magic Eden claims that it can deploy the marketplace in September if the proposal is passed.
