While client diversity is crucial to a resilient Ethereum, it alone would not warrant such a huge engineering effort on our part. Our high level vision, and the main reason we're rolling our own execution layer client, is for easy and seamless integration with Status - both desktop and mobile.
Note that Nimbus tends towards privacy by default making it harder for crawlers to detect [https://twitter.com/jcksie/status/1430909810669625350] it - nevertheless, the
What we are talking about building here is the perfect client for a wallet. An ultra-light client that contributes to the network and does not require syncing (i.e. is immediately usable from a fresh install or after being offline).
Preamble: energy and power The unit of energy we’ll use in this post is the kilowatt-hour (kWh). This quantity is called “one unit” on

This is a short announcement to highlight our v1.0.12 release [https://github.com/status-im/nimbus-eth2/releases/tag/v1.0.12]and bring attention
We believe decentralised staking pools like Rocket Pool are essential to ensuring Ethereum's future as an unbreakable and censorship-resistant system.
Significant performance improvements across the board + additional protection against accidental slashings: Rewards are higher, Sync speed is 50% faster, and CPU utilization has more than halved...
We propose a radical change in design from experts designing for people to people designing for themselves.– Don Norman
