Update on Research and Development of EF-Supported Teams

Published on

Friends,

Since the last EF-Supported Teams report, there has been progress in various areas essential to the functionality and sustainability of Ethereum. This edition focuses on teams and efforts from the Foundation and the larger Ethereum ecosystem that are working towards the growth and improvement of Ethereum as a whole. Here are the updates from some of the teams:

Aleth / C++ Ethereum

The Aleth team has been working on the Istanbul upgrade to the Eth1.x chain, and they have released Aleth 1.7.2 with full support for Istanbul. They have also achieved important milestones with the evmone project, making it faster and compatible with the Istanbul specification. The EVMC project has also received updates to support Istanbul. The Aleth team has made optimizations in the aleth-interpreter and implemented a couple of EIPs for the future Berlin hard fork. They have also made improvements in networking, RPC, database, and the testeth tool.

Ecosystem Support Program

The ESP team has awarded grants to recognize the contributions of communities around the world. They have also expanded their definition of “support” to include non-financial support such as feedback rounds with expert advisors, connecting teams working on similar projects, providing AWS credits, and invitations to events. The ESP website has been improved with a FAQ section, changes to the front page, and upcoming additions like a grants showcase and a dedicated blog.

Ewasm

The Ewasm team has been collaborating with other teams on Eth 2.0 research. They have been working on the architecture of phase 2 and have made proposals and prototypes to inform the design. They have developed the Scout specification, which is a minimal interface for Execution Environments (EEs) and has multiple implementations. They have also been prototyping and measuring stateless EEs to validate the viability of the stateless model. The team is actively researching the interaction between Eth 1 and Eth 2 chains and evaluating proposals for bridging the networks. They are aiming to provide a good developer experience for DApps.

Fast Cryptography

To ensure the success of Ewasm, the team has benchmarked various implementations of cryptographic primitives to identify bottlenecks and designed a fast native bigint API to improve performance.

Overall, progress has been made in various areas, and teams are actively working towards the growth and improvement of Ethereum.

Enjoy the updates!
