What Exactly Is Altair?
If you’re looking for a more in-depth technical breakdown of what specifically is happening under the hood with Altair the Ethereum Cat Herders hosted a great interview with Adrian Sutton of the Teku team.
During this recording Adrian explains in-depth what Altair is, how the data structure changes, new validator duties, and more.
