Fork to Altair

Fork trigger

The fork is triggered at epoch ALTAIR_FORK_EPOCH.

Note that for the pure Altair networks, we don't apply upgrade_to_altair since it starts with Altair version logic.

Upgrading the state

If state.slot % SLOTS_PER_EPOCH == 0 and compute_epoch_at_slot(state.slot) == ALTAIR_FORK_EPOCH, an irregular state change is made to upgrade to Altair.

The upgrade occurs after the completion of the inner loop of process_slots that sets state.slot equal to ALTAIR_FORK_EPOCH * SLOTS_PER_EPOCH. Care must be taken when transitioning through the fork boundary as implementations will need a modified state transition function that deviates from the Phase 0 document. In particular, the outer state_transition function defined in the Phase 0 document will not expose the precise fork slot to execute the upgrade in the presence of skipped slots at the fork boundary. Instead the logic must be within process_slots.

def translate_participation(state: BeaconState, pending_attestations: Sequence[phase0.PendingAttestation]) -> None:
    for attestation in pending_attestations:
        data = attestation.data
        inclusion_delay = attestation.inclusion_delay
        # Translate attestation inclusion info to flag indices
        participation_flag_indices = get_attestation_participation_flag_indices(state, data, inclusion_delay)

        # Apply flags to all attesting validators
        epoch_participation = state.previous_epoch_participation
        for index in get_attesting_indices(state, data, attestation.aggregation_bits):
            for flag_index in participation_flag_indices:
                epoch_participation[index] = add_flag(epoch_participation[index], flag_index)
