  • Latest core devs call. Tim Beiko’s summary. Per the pull request showing the Istanbul EIP decisions made on the call, EIPs 663, 1380, 1985, 2045, and 2046 were added as “tentatively accepted.” There was discussion around doing a second Instanbul fork and/or when to do the next fork after Istanbul. Disappointingly, the call lacked a rep from Geth as well as Parity.

  • ERC2222: fund distribution token standard

  • ERC2224: Automatic signature request (wallet_autoSign)

  • Latest core devs call. Notes. EIPs currently accepted into Istanbul: 1344 (chain ID opcode), 2028 (calldata gas reduction), 2024 (blake2b), 1108 (alt_bn128). EIPs tentatively accepted: 2200 (the new version of 1283 from Constantinople), 1962 (ECC precompile), 1884 (trie dependent reprice), 1057 (ProgPoW)

  • ProgPoW is back into Istanbul (pending audit results), because the audit is back on.

  • Preliminary report from ZCash ProgPoW audit: “ProgPoW is viable, but its use of GPU compute resources is far from optimal and its biggest advantage over Ethash isn't its "programmability" but rather its different than Ethash's reads from the DAG.”

  • Ropsten Istanbul fork now scheduled for September 4th.

  • ERC2212: Interest earning stakes

  • Jesse Walden: the most interesting apps will need to be actively governed

  • Results from Aragon’s third vote. The late-voting whale from last time voted in the middle this time, which effectively ended voting.
