Implementation of zero-knowledge proof circuits for Tendermint.
Tendermint X's core contract is
TendermintX, which stores the headers of Tendermint blocks. Users can query a
TendermintX contract for the header of a specific block height, or for the latest header.
There are two entrypoints to a
skip is used to jump from the current header to a non-consecutive header.
For example, let's say block N has already been proven in the light client, and we want to prove block N+10. If validators from block N represent more than 1/3 of the voting power in block N+10, then we can skip from block N to block N+10, as long as 1) the validators from the trusted block have signed the new block, and 2) the new block is valid.
The methodology for doing so is described in the section 2.3 of A Tendermint Light Client.
step is used to sequentially verify the next header after the current header.
This is rarely used, as
step will only be invoked when the validator set changes by more than 2/3 in a single block.
The circuits are currently available on Succinct X here.
There are currently TendermintX light clients tracking the following networks on Goerli:
forge create --rpc-url $RPC_URL --private-key $PRIVATE_KEY --constructor-args 0x6e4f1e9ea315ebfd69d18c2db974eef6105fb803 --etherscan-api-key $ETHERSCAN_API_KEY --verify TendermintX
TendermintX contract with genesis parameters.
forge script script/Genesis.s.sol --rpc-url $RPC_URL --private-key $PRIVATE_KEY --broadcast
Update the function ID's on the
forge script script/FunctionId.s.sol --rpc-url $RPC_URL --private-key $PRIVATE_KEY --broadcast
TendermintX script to update the light client continuously.
Note: Update .env with the necessary variables before running.
cargo run --bin tendermintx --release
