Illuminating Ethereum's Order Flow Landscape

We live in a world where decentralized finance ("defi") market structure and transaction execution is constantly changing, and poorly understood by most. Among this complexity, it is easy to forget that defi's market structure today is meaningfully different from the current state of traditional finance ("tradfi"). From the roots of a permissionless, global, decentralized genesis, defi is already well along the path to addressing a number of the criticisms levied at tradfi execution, by market participants and regulators alike.

Lodestar Proposals for next Electra/Cancun Fork

With the implementation of Deneb/Cancun almost complete, client teams were asked to provide suggestions on inclusions to the next Electra/Cancun hard fork. This blog post is to outline the combined consensus of Lodestar’s main contributors, inspired by the writings of Paradigm’s Reth team and commendation of this method at AllCoreDevs Execution Meeting 179.

On Block Sizes, Gas Limits and Scalability

There has been much discussion about raising Ethereum’s block gas limit recently.Some argue for bigger blocks based on Moore’s law, some based on a personal gut feeling, some are just trolling around and others are afraid that other chains like Solana will outpace Ethereum when it comes to widespread user adoption.

Client diversity on Ethereum's consensus layer

Ethereum has multiple interoperable clients developed and maintained in different languages by independent teams. This is a major achievement and can provide resilience to the network by limiting the effects of a bug or attack to only the portion of the network running the affected client. However, this strength is only realized if users distribute roughly evenly across the available clients. At present, the vast majority of Ethereum nodes run a single client, inviting unnecessary risk to the network.
