The Ethereum Blog - December Roundup

December marks a month of continued progress in the Ethereum ecosystem. Research on proof of stake and sharding continues after the research team’s workshop in Singapore in November, the light client slowly keeps getting better, Whisper and Swarm keep moving forward, and discussions on protocol economics and community governance continue to mature.
First, privacy technologies on Ethereum, and particularly zk-SNARKs (or “zero knowledge proofs”), have been rapidly moving forward.

The data storage-focused “sister protocol” Swarm continues to move forward:
And from the core client development standpoint:
We wish the community a happy new year and look forward to more progress in January!
