Devcon VI

Hybrid PBS from CL's Perspective
10-13, 11:00–11:30 (America/Bogota), Talk 2

The talk seeks to address the following questions:

  • Why does PBS matter from CL's point of view? What happens if we completely ignore it on the protocol layer? What if we wait to release it?
  • How did we implement hybrid PBS on CL clients from history to functional products?
  • What do they look like in code?
  • What are the gotchas and the trade-offs?
  • What are the remaining questions we shall seek before moving to full PBS?

👋 Hi, I'm a core dev at Prismatic labs. I'm most known for my work on Prysm, a consensus layer client written in Go. I mostly worked on the proof of stake Ethereum, known as the beacon chain. Lately, I've been working extensively on "the merge", hybrid PBS, and eip4844.
