  • Cryptographic Hash Functions with Evgeny Kapun.
  • Validators: A new version of nearcore 1.21.0 was released for mainnet.
    • nearcore 1.21.0 introduced a new protocol version, so once 2/3 of validators are upgraded, older nodes will get stuck. Thus, if you use Indexer Framework and run your own Indexer, it is time to upgrade. Please, follow this guide:
  • Validator AMA on Thursday, Sep. 23, 5pm GMT. Get your questions answered about the upcoming sharding change. Sign up now!
    • We’re steadily approaching the launch of Simple Nightshade which will lead to the launch of sharding on NEAR!
