Helios for ETH Node on Orchestrator

I’m testing Helios to use as a Trustless ETH client in combination with an Alchemy RPC. Seems to work as expected.

@sumamu have you tested this and do you think there is any reason we should not do that?

I really think over time we might consider migrating the Orchestrator to a kubernetes cluster that sets up the binary and nodes for each network. If we add more networks we need to be running nodes ourselves IMO.

Helios is a fully trustless, efficient, and portable Ethereum light client written in Rust.

Helios converts an untrusted centralized RPC endpoint into a safe unmanipulable local RPC for its users. It syncs in seconds, requires no storage, and is lightweight enough to run on mobile devices.

The entire size of Helios’s binary is 5.3Mb and should be easy to compile into WebAssembly. This makes it a perfect target to embed directly inside wallets and dapps.
