Ethereum Cat Herders Update #241559 Fee market change, Altona Eth2 multiclient testnet, performance and diversity goals for Ethereum, and more community update.
Welcome back to another edition of the Ethereum Cat Herders update. Hopefully, it will help you bring up to speed since the previous ECH update.All Core Developers meeting
