A new version of Hubble (1.11.6) is out with Bundles. Messages are now grouped into bundles before being gossiped. This will reduce network usage and may improve sync speeds. Please upgrade your Hubble to 1.11.6 by Apr 17.

Warpcast is having some trouble processing Hub messages, and the team is working on it. You can always check our public dashboards to see if there is an ongoing issue: https://p.datadoghq.com/sb/6aa1f434-6f72-11ec-b49a-da7ad0900002-7eb5a21cd15e7501dfe42547189112bf

Playing around with latitude.sh for hosting hubs today. Kind of crazy that their boxes cost 50% of AWS and have allegedly 3x the disk performance for NVME disks.

Our goal is to scale Farcaster to 1 million daily users. Farcaster will need to handle 10,000 messages / second while staying credibly decentralized. That's roughly in the same order of magnitude as most global credit card networks. Here's our proposal: https://github.com/farcasterxyz/protocol/discussions/163
