by Solana Foundation
The Solana validator community celebrates the third birthday of the Solana blockchain! Anatoly joins the call to review new testing improvements. Lucas from Jito presents their findings on spam transactions on the blockchain. 00:00 Intro and Agenda 00:31 Happy Birthday Solana! 01:00 Testnet restart on 1.13.6 01:51 Anatoly talks testing 07:18 Jito presents spam findings 32:00 Open discussion Chat logs: Tim Garcia: Blog post on testing https://solana.com/news/plans-to-improve-the-network-upgrades melea crypto: Share link Tim Garcia: mev spam investigation: https://medium.com/@Jito-Foundation/solving-the-mev-problem-on-solana-a-guide-for-stakers-7768308e93bc melea crypto: Ty Brian Smith: Presentation link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1P9rA4NpC8ENBwn88LeV4VtDFc1Kxd9AY/view?usp=share_link Overclock Validator: Why is spamming still a helpful strategy? melea crypto: We are going to jito very soon ! Dan Albert: where can a validator see what other nodes are running jito-solana? it would be helpful for adoption for public nodes to see which of their peers are already running jito, to gain comfort. Brian Long: validators.app shows Jito validators! Blake Bartenbach: Nice! Brian Smith: https://jito.retool.com/embedded/public/3557dd68-f772-4f4f-8a7b-f479941dba02 Brian Smith: Validators.app, manystake, the above link and other sites hopefully soon will all flag Jito for awareness Brian Long: See https://www.validators.app/validators?locale=en&network=mainnet&order=stake & look for the "Jito" toggle Blake Bartenbach: Yep, I was going to say, I thought ManyStake also did https://www.manystake.com/validator-view?client=jito Nick Garfield: Looking forward to jito-client! Overclock Validator: Bullish on fee per cu base fee Cyrial Kamda: ^ Overclock Validator: Sry gotta shill Blake Bartenbach: Sorry, it's not always clear - who is Lucas B on Discord? Ben Hawkins: Yeah economic incentives to make more compute efficient txns would make a lot of sense. Tim Garcia: buffalu#8451 Blake Bartenbach: Oh that's buffalu! Okay, thank you! Brian Long: Stats from Block Logic in the last hour: 212998 dropped_txs 73750 dropped_txs_WouldExceedBlockMaxLimit 139248 dropped_txs_WouldExceedAccountMaxLimit Ben Hawkins: I've found that fee priority doesn't work reliably. e.g. higher fee doesn''t always beat out lower fee. Sam Legends: Is there any public charts that show the % of dropped transactions? Brian Long: Sam, no. That data exists only on the validators. Sam Legends: Thanks Brian Ben Hawkins: Further more, each validator view of dropped txns is different Dan Albert: Anybody want to take a crack at updating the `solana validators` CLI to reflect solana vs jito-solana usage in the version readout? Brian Smith: Discord link: https://discord.gg/jito melea crypto: Thanks, nice presentation Emilio Oberg: fix mic Max Sherwood: Yeah Im here but outdoors haha Blake Bartenbach: Dan - would be nice if the RPC service could return that information. getVersion doesn't differentiate currently. Blake Bartenbach: Not sure if that's the source of making that happen Dan Albert: yeah, makes sense. PRs always open. not sure if getVersion statically points to the labs repo or what. haven't looked. Dan Albert: or could pull from whatever build sha Chris R: Initial focus is on follow-ups to post-mortem, will also add new topics as people propose them over time. Pull meaningful conversations out of Discord and provide some focus to help make them actionable.

Solana Ecosystem Call - Dec 2022
It’s been a wild few weeks. Superteam is celebrating teams and builders who have had the gumption to keep shipping products amidst the chaos. Grab a glass of wine or a mug of coffee! We'll start with some ecosystem-wide wins, followed by a dive into the state of the network, before hearing lightning-fast updates from teams that have been shipping over the past 4 weeks. This is an experimental format, adopted from the Superteam Community Call that’s hosted every week (for over a year now). Hopefully, it works just as well and makes your Thursday feel as good as Friday. See you then! ------------------ Link to the presentation: https://pitch.com/public/f3577a09-fcd6-4871-9fff-c36ea85082a8/b8ec0f83-913f-4485-9ab2-15e02d60f5eb Wins of the Month ----------------------------- - Stripe fiat to crypto: https://twitter.com/stripe/status/1598361957836279809?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - Discord announces linked roles: https://twitter.com/solana/status/1602352049550680064?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - Introducing matchday: https://twitter.com/matchday/status/1593441888119320576?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - Saga phone preorder starts: https://twitter.com/solanamobile/status/1597548283756367872?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - Orca has facilitated $32B+ in trading volume: https://twitter.com/orca_so/status/1600174346663649287?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - Openbook intigreates into Raydium and Jupiter: https://twitter.com/JupiterExchange/status/1593608022651113472?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - Magic Eden launches open creator protocol: https://twitter.com/MagicEden/status/1598400031999918080?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - Jito Labs open-sources Jito Solana: https://twitter.com/solscanofficial/status/1594295238499397632?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - UXD goes open-source: https://twitter.com/UXDProtocol/status/1598161593875169281?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - SuperteamDAO goes Global: https://twitter.com/therealchaseeb/status/1602843896656138240?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - Ellipsis Labs announced Phoenix: https://twitter.com/ellipsis_labs/status/1592196679956156420?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - Helius improves webhook latencies by over 10x: https://twitter.com/heliuslabs/status/1595877389548011521?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - Squads introduce account abstraction: https://twitter.com/SquadsProtocol/status/1600489076569751552?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - Binance Custody integrates Solana: https://twitter.com/BinanceCustody/status/1601042937873256448?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA - Solana local fee markets are live: https://twitter.com/aeyakovenko/status/1603124352479678464?s=20&t=wslmJDFwYqkw0PtFGksrEA ============ Check out the Superteam Job board: https://superteam-jobs.pallet.com/jobs Superteam Twitter: https://twitter.com/SuperteamDAO ------------------ Timestamps: 0:00 - Welcome to Ecosystem Call 04:49 - Wins of the Month 11:49 - The State of Solana 25:54 - Quic Updates 57:22 - Pyth New Video! 58:14 - 10 Days of Earnings 59:48 - Parting notes ------------------ Video edited by Jaydeep Dholakia ► https://twitter.com/DholakiaJaydeep Channel Producer: Jaydeep Dholakia ►https://twitter.com/DholakiaJaydeep ------------------ Disclaimer: The information contained herein is for informational and entertainment purposes only.
