  • Nomadic Labs has issued an urgent alert for all Tezos node operators and bakers to upgrade to Octez v20.1 due to a critical bug affecting the Smart Rollups feature.
  • This swift upgrade set to activate at block 5,898,241, is crucial to ensure network stability and maintain the seamless functioning of the Tezos ecosystem.

Nomadic Labs one of the leading research centers in the Tezos ecosystem has issued an urgent alert to all Tezos node operators and bakers. 

A crucial bug has been identified in the Smart Rollups feature demanding all operators and bakers to upgrade to the newly released Octez v20.1.

The positive news is that this bug doesn’t jeopardize the security of the Tezos mainnet or the Etherlink platform, but it does disrupt the process of withdrawing assets from Etherlink to Tezos’ layer 1. Additionally, it’s important to emphasize that this issue does not compromise the overall security of the Tezos network or the assets held on the Etherlink platform.

The solution to this bug is incorporated within the ParisC protocol, part of the Octez v20.1 upgrade. This upgrade is determined to be activated through a user-activated upgrade (UAU) at block 5,898,241 next week. Nomadic has highly suggested that operators and bakers update to the new version ( to Octez v20.1) without delay. 

The timely completion of this upgrade is fundamental for the seamless functionality of the ParisC protocol and to ensure the network’s stability.

According to Nomadic Labs, Operators and bakers should upgrade to Octez v20.1 due to the impending activation date of the UAU (User-Activated upgrade) By acting promptly, they ensure the continued functionality, stability, and reliability of the Tezos ecosystem. 

In addition to its significant technical steps, Tezos continues to improve in other areas through strategic partnerships. Recently, the Tezos Foundation partnered with Google Cloud to create a secure and geographically distributed copy of the Tezos blockchain. Utilizing Google Cloud SDK tools, the procedure was done in no time ensuring Tezos’ presence all over the globe solidifying Tezos’ position as a leading and reliable blockchain platform.

This significant collaboration facilitates the creation of archive nodes on a global scale, which provide a comprehensive record of every transaction and intermediate state of the blockchain. This substantial development not only reinforces the security and resilience of the Tezos ecosystem but puts the blockchain at the forefront as one of the most reliable networks.

Focusing on XTZ, Tezos native token price movements presented a mixed sentiment among investors. Digging deep into the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) signal, there has been a significant surge in inflows indicating a rise in buying pressure and growing confidence rates among investors. 

However, while the CMF hints at a bullish outlook, other indicators including the volatility in the funding rate affirm otherwise. This mixed sentiment might lead to a moment of consolidation with XTZ hovering between the price range of $0.76 to $0.87. At press time XTZ is exchanging hands at  $0.7698, representing a 1.68%  drop in the last 24 hours with potential breakout targeting $0.94 or breakdown scenarios targeting $0.60.
