PegaSys Protocol Engineering Update – April 2019
DISCLAIMER: As of September 2019, Pantheon has been renamed to Hyperledger Besu. In posts prior to September 2019, we refer to the Ethereum client as Pantheon.
April has kicked off with lots of events on the agenda and a new product release and webinar coming up. Read on to see what we’ve been up to, and what we’ve got in store!
Pantheon 1.1 Release and Webinar
If you missed our email last week, PegaSys has been working with Web3 Labs to release Pantheon 1.1 on April 30, 2019 with some significant updates.
To coincide with the release, we’ll be hosting a webinar discussing how PegaSys delivers privacy to enable Enterprise applications.
The webinar will cover:
- A high-level overview of Pantheon’s latest release and its long-term Privacy roadmap
- A deep dive into the design and rationale behind Privacy / Privacy Groups
- A brief demo on the privacy feature and how you can set it up at your enterprise
Winners of the hackathon will be invited to join Ethereal Summit in NYC to present their winning work live.
Pantheon version 1.0.3 has been released!

EdCon Recap – April 8 – 13, Sydney
Sydney Blockchain Week took place last week. Several of our PegaSys Protocol Engineering team members attended and presented at EdCon (Community Ethereum Development Conference).
To kick things off, Sandra Johnson (Applied Researcher) spoke on ConsenSys’ Future of Ethereum Panel on Wednesday evening.
Olivier Bégassat (Protocol Engineer, PegaSys R&D), presented “Probabilistically Checkable Proofs (PCPs): Why Reading Proofs is Unnecessary”. Nicolas Liochon and Blazej Kolad (Applied Researchers) also presented “Practical Multi-Signature Aggregation for Large Byzantine Committees”.
Roberto Saltini (Lead Consensus Protocol Researcher) closed out the week on Saturday with his presentation “IBFT 2.0: a Robust PoA BFT Consensus Protocol for Ethereum”.
We’ll share recordings of each presentation as they become available!
We are excited to share that we have joined the Community Blockstars programme as a Technical Partner for B9lab, which readies developers for a successful career in Ethereum development.
