Danny Ryan on the Ethereum blog has covered about Spadina in the ETH2 quick update No.16.
Spadina focuses on the deposits and genesis. The deposits and genesis part is considered to be one of the difficult and risky parts in the path to mainnet.
Reportedly, Spadina has a 3-day end-of-life. This means that the client teams, block explorers, and other key infrastructure providers will be providing support for Spadina only for 3 days.
In the past week, EF announced the Medalla Data Challenge in an effort to get more people involved in the process of eth2 analysis and tooling while at the same time improving on the knowledge base, educational resource, and general understanding of eth2 and its other networks.
Those who want to participate in Spadina will be able to work on the key generation and management to verify if they are able to setup their favorite client from scratch. It is for each of them to decide if they want to participate or not. This is a lot like a short-lived dress rehearsal.
Sydney Ifergan, the crypto expert tweeted: “Ethereum (ETH) are working with the best people. And, when it all falls in line it is going to be a celebration for the network. Wait is worth for the best.”
Vitalik Buterin recently expressed that he just funded ~13 projects on Gitcoin using @zksync rollup. He felt it is much cheaper than regular on-chain transactions. This he stated in response to the Gitcoin Grants Round 7.
For those who might not know, Gitcoin has a mission of growing and sustaining open source. They believe in blockchain being a game-changer for funding FOSS (Free and Open Source Software). Importantly, Gitcoin Grants Round 7 is now live.
Recently Vitalik Buterin called for a survey asking “Do the ideas that I promote and seem to you to hold tend to be more…” and the survey results were that it was more capitalist than socialist; more collectivist than individualist; more left-leaning than right-leaning; and more libertarian than authoritarian.
Ethereum (ETH) Focused Gelato Network
Ethereum.network tweeted: “Gelato Network, is the #Ethereum-focused protocol for automating transactions raises $1.2 million in seed funding from Galaxy Digital, IOSG Ventures and more.”
Gelato Network, is an Ethereum-focused protocol, which is used for automating transactions. It has nearly $1.2 million in a seed funding round. Gelato launched on mainnet back in July and projects like Gnosis were among the first to adopt the protocol.
There is a lot of development tasks happening on the network. Interesting projects in Defi are Booming. Genuine community building is happening and all for the greater good of the ecosystem.
