Highlights of Ethereum Devs Call

Date and Chair:

  • Date: November 9
  • Chaired by Tim Beiko, Ethereum Foundation’s Protocol Support Lead.

Agenda Items:

  • Discussion on the first Dencun Goerli shadow fork.
  • Changes to execution API specifications to include blob-related data.
  • Addition of a proof verification precompile to Verkle upgrade.
  • ACD call schedule for the next two weeks.

Dencun Goerli Shadow Fork #0:

  • Executed on November 6, testing the Dencun upgrade.
  • Shadow forking is a method to test upgrades in an environment mirroring existing networks.
  • Smooth testing on Goerli Shadow Fork #0, with 100 validators.
  • Consideration of conducting another shadow fork with more validators for better evaluation.
  • Waiting for the rework of CL clients before further testing.

Changes to Execution API Specifications:

  • Proposal to update "eth_feeHistory" method to include blob-related data post-Dencun.
  • Proposal for a new method "eth_blobGasPrice" or alternatively, a bundled method "eth_gasPrices."
  • Discussion on concerns about the bundled method; recommendation to proceed with eth_blobGasPrice.
  • Recommendation to reach out to Layer-2 protocol teams for input.

Verkle Proof Verification Precompile:

  • Proposal to add a precompile for smart contract verification of Verkle proofs.
  • Discussion on whether EIP 2537 could be used for this purpose (affirmed it couldn't).
  • Encouragement to discuss the proposal in the Ethereum Magicians thread.

ACD Call Schedule Updates:

  • Agreement to continue ACD calls despite Devconnect and U.S. Thanksgiving holidays.
  • Initial consideration to cancel or reschedule, but concerns raised about the optics given the already delayed timeline of the Cancun/Deneb upgrade.
  • Decision to continue the next two week’s ACD calls, with a request for asynchronous updates from client teams unable to attend.
