This week’s Technology Weekly contains technical news on 7 networks including Ethereum, Filecoin, SKALE, Avalanche, Poly Network, StarkEx, and ZKSwap.
Data: Ethereum validator nodes exceeded 200,000
According to news on July 30, the number of Ethereum validator nodes has successfully exceeded 200,000, and the number of ETH pledged in the ETH2.0 deposit contract has exceeded 6.6 million, with a total value of over 14 billion U.S. dollars. It is reported that in one month, more than 20,000 verifiers have been added to the network, increasing the number of verifiers from 180,000 to more than 200,000. At present, the amount of pledged ETH accounts for more than 5% of the entire ETH circulating supply. The annual rate of return of staking ETH on the Ethereum network is 6.1%. (Newsbtc)
Co-founder of EthHub: EIP-1559 will be launched on the Ethereum mainnet in about 10 days
On July 26, EthHub co-founder Anthony Sassano stated on Twitter that EIP-1559 will be launched on the Ethereum mainnet within about 10 days.
Qiu Xiaodong, head of Xinghuo Mining Pool Market: We still oppose EIP 1559, but we cannot stop the implementation
On July 25, the “2021 World Blockchain Conference Hangzhou” was held at the Academic Exchange Center of Hangzhou Future Science and Technology City. At the “London upgrade is imminent, EIP-1559 will start a new era of Ethereum?” At the roundtable forum, Qiu Xiaodong, head of the Spark Pool Market, said: At present, EIP 1559 does not save much on the transaction performance and the fees for participating in DeFi. We still insist on our opposition, but the result is essentially unstoppable. It is expected that the deployment will take place on August 4 and 5. Recently, there have been many talks about 2022. This is also a rumor. Our own programmers also discovered during the testing process that the EIP 1559 testnet did have bugs, and if there were bugs, we had to deploy within such a short period of August 4th. It seems that the determination is very strong, because this was passed by the collective developers. , So the voice of opposition is still there. Our position remains the same, but the result will certainly not change. We just say that we expect its launch to let DeFi users clearly know what BaseFee is and what miner tips are. (Babbit)
Filecoin and Hedera Hashgraph provide $200,000 in funding to advance Web3 interoperability
On July 28, Filecoin and the distributed ledger platform Hedera Hashgraph announced the launch of a collaboration to promote Web3 interoperability, which will fund a total of $200,000 for teams that conduct initial implementation of NFT use cases. The long-term vision of the cooperation is to combine the advantages of the two networks to provide a full range of distributed ledger solutions, including distributed consensus, storage, and smart data applications. The funded project will include two tracks, namely the design of a decentralized storage SDK for Hedera and the development of demo applications, as well as real-world application scenarios.
ChainSafe receives funding from The Graph
Canadian technology company ChainSafe announced that it has received a Wave 2 grant from The Graph, a blockchain data indexing protocol, and will design and develop an integration between The Graph and the Filecoin network. ChainSafe stated that adding Filecoin to the blockchain and data sources supported by The Graph will allow developers to create subgraphs to index data from Filecoin blocks.
Ethereum sidechain SKALE mainnet already supports Dapp deployment
On July 30, SKALENetwork, the Ethereum sidechain used to support Web3, announced that the main network has supported DApp deployment. The first batch of six cooperative projects will be launched on the SKALENetwork main network in the next few months. The first batch of cooperative applications include the decentralized liquidity protocol Boot.Finance, the portfolio sharing software Covey, the asset tokenization platform CurioDAO, the decentralized labor market Human Protocol, the simplified NFT and token trading application Ivy, and open source and decentralization The social networking platform Minds.
Avalanche releases Avalanche cross-chain bridge
Golden Finance reported that Avalanche announced on its official Twitter that it has released a new Avalanche cross-chain bridge (AB) to replace the Avalanche-Ethereum cross-chain bridge (AEB) launched in February this year, and through higher security and more Fast transaction confirmation speed and greatly reduced fee rate provide a better user experience. It is reported that the Avalanche cross-chain bridge is built using Intel SGX Enclave technology, which can facilitate all operations in a closed environment and ensure that it is tamper-proof. The rate of the new cross-chain bridge is expected to be 5 times cheaper than AEB.
Cross-chain interoperability protocol Poly Network announces support for Polygon
On July 28, 2021, the cross-chain interoperability protocol Poly Network announced that it has integrated the full-stack expansion solution Polygon of Ethereum. Polygon has become the 11th heterogeneous blockchain supported by Poly Network. This move also means that Poly Network will become Cross-chain aggregator of Layer1 and Layer2. Poly Network will provide Polygon users and project parties with cross-chain asset bridging, cross-chain swap and NFT cross-chain services.
Ethereum’s second-tier expansion solution, StarkEx 3.0 mainnet, includes L1 Vaults and SHARP functions
Ethereum’s second-tier expansion solution, StarkEx 3.0, is officially launched on the mainnet, which includes two new functions, L1 Vaults and SHARP. Through L1 Vaults, StarkEx users can interact with Ethereum addresses, especially smart contract addresses. L1 Vaults allows to deposit funds into any Ethereum address through smart contracts, issue limit order transactions and withdraw funds; SHARP (SHARed Prover) Collect transactions from several StarkEx-powered applications, and then package them into a proof, thereby increasing the gas usage rate of each transaction and achieving a faster transaction confirmation speed.
ZKSwap will launch the V2 mainnet on July 28
The decentralized cryptocurrency trading platform ZKSwap announced that its upcoming V2 mainnet will be launched through the Ethereum Layer1 mainnet on July 28. This update will introduce various new features for third-party projects that wish to list their token transactions, such as allowing unlimited token lists and trading pairs. The update will also reduce the cross-layer withdrawal time from 40 minutes to 20 minutes, and allow users to use the expanded list of subsequent tokens to pay for withdrawal fees, such as ETH, USDT and the platform’s own ERC20 token ZKS.
