WatchData

Tel Aviv, Israel, August 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The watcha technology company that makes blockchain accessible to developers in a transparent way, announced that its products WatchData and WatchBlock have been updated to support the merger and will continue to provide their service without interruption.

The merger is an upgrade to the Ethereum network that is expected to take place in September 2022. The change will transform Ethereum from a Proof-of-Work network to a Proof-of-Stake network, making it more robust, faster and cheaper. . The exact timing of The Merge depends on Ethereum Foundation timelines.

TheWatch has performed a technical review and implemented necessary updates to ensure that WatchData, an API service for web3, and WatchBlock, a blockchain transaction monitoring platform, are prepared for the upgraded Ethereum. updated and will operate as usual after the change, providing their customers with real-time data and insights.

Most of the preparatory work was done by the developers of the Ethereum foundation who did a detailed analysis control List for developers to simplify the update process. In a nutshell, TheWatch team did the following:

  • Run a Beacon Chain node

  • Modified launch parameters

  • Updating and testing nodes

  • Node management configured to ensure consistency of all data

“The merger significantly changes how parts of the Ethereum network work,” says Sviatoslav Dorofeev, CEO of TheWatch. “Every member of the ecosystem, whether you are a miner, a DeFi protocol or a node provider, must prepare in advance if you want to provide uninterrupted service.”

After the merge, a full Ethereum node will have both a consensus layer (CL) client and an execution layer (EL) client. The EL executes the transactions and the CL maintains the state of the user. These communicate through an authenticated port using a new set of JSON RPC methods called API Engine. The EL and CL authenticate each other using a JWT secret that node operators should consult their client’s documentation for instructions on how to generate and configure. The Beacon and JSON RPC APIs will be handled by each layer individually, allowing developers to use both.
