Upgrade proposal detected
Gravity Bridge chain will act as neutral ethereum to cosmos bridge. Through IBC(Interblockchain communication), many different cosmos based projects can connect and use the bridge to access ERC20 assets, like dai or usdc, without having to operate the gravity orchestrator on their own chain.
Gravity will be able to bring ERC20 assets from Ethereum into Cosmos, as well as Cosmos assets to Ethereum ERC20 representations. ATOM, and any other asset in the Cosmos ecosystem, will be able to trade on Uniswap and other Ethereum AMMs, and interact with Ethereum DeFi like any ERC20 token.
Wen upgrade, ser?
Since you are using Cosmovisor, you can do this as soon as the upgrade has been announced. No need to wait for the upgrade block! Cosmovisor will monitor the chain and start the new version when it's time.
Compile and install latest
# Download version v1.8.0 mkdir -p $HOME/.gravity/cosmovisor/upgrades/pleiades2/bin curl -Ls https://github.com/Gravity-Bridge/Gravity-Bridge/releases/download/v1.8.0/gravity-linux-amd64 > $HOME/.gravity/cosmovisor/upgrades/pleiades2/bin/gravity
Sit back and relax
That's it! Now you can wait for the upgrade block. When it happens, Cosmovisor should detect in and launch the new version. You will be up and running in under a minute normally.
If you want to monitor things, keep an eye on the logs:
sudo journalctl -u gravity -f --no-hostname -o cat
