  • Latest core devs call. Per the notes: EIP 2028 accepted for Istanbul fork, EIP2200 tentatively accepted. ProgPoW audit not done so not included in Istanbul. EIPs with reference implementations 1352, 1845, 1985, 2027 and 2046 still under consideration for Istanbul.
  • EIP2200: Rebalance net-metered SSTORE gas cost with consideration of SLOAD gas cost change
  • Why EIP2028 makes sense, and Starkware’s experiment to show we can reduce gas cost 4x for data
  • ERC2193: Alias – decentralized type system. More on Alias: “a homogeneous standard for identifying resources by human-readable qualifiers” and a simple video demo of Alias
  • Outsource sybil resistance in your DAO to HumanityDAO
