Overview

Conflux-Rust v2.1.0 is a small hardfork upgrade. In this upgrade 4 new CIPs will be activate, and also some improvement about storage and RPC.

New CIPs#

  • CIP-94: proposes to use on-chain DAO voting to decide and update reward parameters without hardfork.
  • CIP-97: proposes to remove account's staking lists.
  • CIP-98: Fix a bug in BLOCKHASH opcode in eSpace.
  • CIP-99: Allow more not-voting terms before we force-retire a node, and make the unlock period of a retiring node shorter to allow the node to rejoin the PoS voting faster.

New InternalContract#

CIP-94 also has introduce a new InternalContract ParamControl at hex address 0x0888000000000000000000000000000000000007. This contract can be used to retrive parameter info and participate in DAO vote.

event RevokeVote(uint64 indexed vote_round, address indexed addr, uint16 indexed topic_index, uint256[3] votes);
}

Improvements#

Storage#

Allow snapshots to be removed during recovery. This reduces the disk space requirement for full node sync or recovery.

In v2.1.0 Conflux-Rust also brought support for fullstate query, which means we can query state at any blockchain height. For example we can query an address cfx:aaketjh9tkj5g2k4zx3kfvb9vkku8nr956n0en4fhe's balance at height 100000 with method cfx_getBalance by specifying the second parameter.

curl --location --request POST 'https://main.confluxrpc.com' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data-raw ' {
"jsonrpc": "2.0",
"id": "15922956697249514502",
"method": "cfx_getBalance",
"params": [
"cfx:aaketjh9tkj5g2k4zx3kfvb9vkku8nr956n0en4fhe",
"0x186a0"
]
}'

To support conflux fullstate query, a archive node with configuration enable_single_mpt_storage enabled is required. And the node need sync data from genesis to construct all the history states. Besides nodes can also set single_mpt_space = "evm" to only store eSpace states.

RPC#

  • Support eth_subscribe and eth_unsubscribe in eSpace RPCs.
  • Add a RPC method cfx_getParamsFromVote to return the currently used value of the voted parameters.
  • Return null for getting skipped transactions and receipts. Whether they will be returned was nondeterministic before, but now they are ensured to be null.
