EOF Included In Pectra Upgrade

Ethereum core developers agreed to include the EVM Object Format (EOF) in the upcoming Pectra upgrade. EOF, as outlined in EIP-7692, involves about 11 EIPs that provide an opt-in container for EVM code to improve code validation and introduce new functionality. If EOF becomes a blocker, it will be separated into a different fork to ensure Pectra can proceed without major delays. EOF will not be part of the initial devnet 1 release. The Pectra upgrade will also include EIP-7702, an account abstraction standard proposed by Vitalik Buterin. Overall, Pectra is considered a “packed” upgrade with 19 EIPs already planned for inclusion, marking it as one of the most extensive upgrades in Ethereum history.

Celestia Supports Orbit On Mainnet

Celestia now supports production-ready Arbitrum Orbit chain deployments on mainnet, allowing developers to use Celestia's data availability for their custom L2 or L3 chains. The integration is powered by Blobstream, a one-way data attestation bridge that streams data from Celestia's data availability layer to Arbitrum Orbit chains. Blobstream allows for the verification of Celestia’s data roots through an onchain light client on Ethereum L1, enabling chains to access block space that is priced independently from the base gas fees on their underlying chain. Additionally, the integration features an Ethereum Fallback feature, which permits rollups to rely on Ethereum for data availability.

Taiko Enables Permissionless Proving

Taiko released support for permissionless proposing and proving on its based ZK Rollup, enabling anyone to run a Taiko node and prover. A prover generates validity proofs to verify the accuracy of transactions within a rollup block, while a proposer bundles transactions into blocks for inclusion. In a based rollup like Taiko, rollup transactions are sequenced by Ethereum L1 block builders, removing the need for centralized sequencers.

Base Surpasses OP Mainnet TVL

Base, the L2 network developed by Coinbase, has overtaken OP Mainnet by total value locked (TVL), becoming the largest chain on the Superchain. Base now holds a TVL of $7.85 billion, surpassing OP Mainnet's $7.81 billion. Arbitrum remains the top rollup with nearly $20 million in TVL. Base is also leading by activity with nearly 64 million transactions in the past 30 days.
