Execution layer (eth1)

Edit on Github

While our core focus so far has been Ethereum 2 (consensus layer), we are now devoting significant resources to our Ethereum 1 client (execution layer).

Quickstart

To run Nimbus in Ethereum 1 mode, first install the prerequisites.

Then run the following commands:

git clone https://github.com/status-im/nimbus-eth1
cd nimbus-eth1
make update

# >>> WINDOWS ONLY <<<
make fetch-dlls # WINDOWS ONLY
# >>> WINDOWS ONLY <<<

make nimbus
./build/nimbus

Nimbus will now run and attempt to synchronize with the Ethereum blockchain.
