DAppNode multiclient features
In the Prater Testnet and Gnosis Chain, DAppNode users have had a choice of the Execution Layer (EL) client and Consensus Layer (CL) client.
You are no longer limited to Prysm with the multiclient setup and can use any CL client you choose. This has enormous benefits for you since you can respond rapidly to any potential flaws on any client implementation and you can encourage client diversity, which means that by running minority clients, you increase the overall resilience of the Ethereum Network.

Not widely reported, but there has been significant progress on crypto regulatory clarity over the past year amongst G20. Lots more green and yellow here compared to a year ago.— Brian Armstrong - barmstrong.eth (@brian_armstrong) August 21, 2022

On Sunday morning, CryptoPunks briefly held the top spot among NFT collections. All year long, the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection has been in first place. In March, Yuga Labs acquired the rights to CryptoPunks, making both collections its property. The switch occurred as a result of Bored Apes losing value more quickly than CryptoPunks.
