The Tezos Post #3

Biweekly update 28th October — 11th November

Current Proposal — Delphi (Promotion Period)

The Delphi proposal for Tezos will in fact be implemented as we’ve passed quorum in the promotion phase!

Source: Tezos Agora

The Delphi proposal, a joint effort from Nomadic Labs, Metastate, and Gabriel Alfour, is an interim protocol proposal focused on performance and gas improvements in order to help individuals developing smart contracts on Tezos.

Delphi’s changes include optimizations to the amount of computation per unit of gas:

- Gas costs for all instructions have been recomputed

- The cost model for IOs has been updated

- The typechecking system has an entirely new cost model

- The base gas cost of manager operations has been reduced from 10,000 to 1,000 units of gas

This proposal will be followed by an additional proposal in several months that will include support for features on the Dalphanet test network including Sapling, baking accounts, and more.

Cheers to Tezos Russian community!:)

Ecosystem Updates


  • Stakin baker fee increase


Taurus Group SA (“Taurus“) announced that it has integrated the Tezos protocol’s staking capabilities into its digital asset infrastructure solutions. These include Taurus-PROTECT TM, the leading digital asset custody solution for banks, asset managers, and exchanges. This is the second step of several strategic initiatives. The Tezos Foundation and Taurus entered multi-faceted strategic cooperation in Q4 2019 in order to grow the Tezos ecosystem and provide secure and institutional-grade access to the Tezos blockchain.

Sygnum is the first regulated bank to launch staking for Tezos (XTZ), an open-source protocol backed by a global community of validators, researchers and developers. Secure custody, trading, credit and staking services for XTZ are available. Now Sygnum clients can rely on the bank’s independently-confirmed tax impact assessment reports which are available on-demand via e-banking.

tZERO, a leader in financial innovation and liquidity for private companies, announced today it has signed an agreement with Tynton Capital, a venture capital and private equity firm, to provide digitization services for its planned data infrastructure technology fund, which will be issued on the Tezos Blockchain. The fund has a planned offering size of $300 million USD and is expected to trade on the tZERO ATS, following its offering and any applicable regulatory holding periods and confirmatory due diligence.

A new post on Emmy+ considers a strengthened adversary model and shows that the #Tezos blockchain remains stable under attempts to keep it in a forked state (“mixed forks”): the chain snaps back to consensus almost as quickly as it did before.

TZIP-17 enables account abstraction: emulating multiple account types using standardized contract calls. This is done through pre-signing: a method to sign and submit Tezos transactions separately. TZIP-17’s gas relaying process gives anyone the opportunity to subsidize user onboarding to their application or send a token over Tezos without needing to spend tez. This improves the end-user experience interacting with dApps from their wallets and brings the experience more in line with the applications and financial transactions most users are accustomed to.

Kiln is an application that allows users to bake on the Tezos blockchain as well as monitor and receive alerts from a self-curated set of bakers and nodes. Today, we are excited to announce that Kiln version 0.8.2 is now available for Linux (Ubuntu), MacOS Catalina, VM, and Docker (monitoring only). Kiln 0.8.2 introduces a few new features: Multinetwork node support, Delphi support, and an updated UI with regard to node software notifications.

Beacon SDK the implementation of the tzip-10 standard is now available natively for developers on Android devices through the Kotlin implementation.
