No More Decoding Headaches: Announcing The Blocknative Decoding API
No More Decoding Headaches: Announcing The Blocknative Decoding API
For builders working with Layer 2 (L2) solutions, one challenge has consistently slowed development progress: decoding the complex data streams used for transaction settlement onto the L1 chain. This process is not only time-consuming but also requires significant technical expertise.

Blob Inversion: An Investigation Into the June 20th 2024 Blob Spike
Blob Inversion: An Investigation Into the June 20th 2024 Blob Spike
Thank you to all those who provided input and review on this piece, including Julian Ma, Soubhik Deb, Barnabe Monnot, Max Resnick, Mallesh Pai, Davide Crapis, Ed Felten, Roberto Bayardo, Potusz, and the Blocknative team. On Thursday, June 20, 2024, the Blob Base Fee spiked to 8,000 GWEI, making blobdata (type 3 transactions) more expensive than calldata (type 2 transactions) for the second time since the Dencun upgrade. During the inversion event, L2s incurred an estimated overpayment of ~166 ETH (approximately $550,000 USD) by including data in batches sent to Ethereum as blobdata instead of calldata. What happened? Why did we see another spike similar to the blobscription craze?

Ethereum's EIP 4844 Dencun Upgrade: An 85-Day Analysis Ethereum's EIP 4844, part of the Dencun upgrade, has seen substantial adoption of blob-carrying transactions (Type 3) within its first 85 days. A deep dive into this period reveals several key trends and insights about the upgrade's impact on Layer 2 (L2) protocols and the broader Ethereum ecosystem. The Blocknative data science team recently published an in-depth analysis of the performance of Blobs since its launch; you can read the full article here or read on for some highlights.

"After first building our own infrastructure, we appreciate that mempool management is a difficult, expensive problem to solve at scale. That's why we partner with Blocknative to power the transaction notifications in our next-generation wallet."
