Based on updates from the developers involved in the project, Ethereum 2.0 may take six to eight weeks to complete
It has been a week since the second testnet (Zinken) was successfully deployed for Ethereum 2.0. The success of the second test diluted any doubts and concerns of the first Spadina test that it would be a failure.
Developer Ben Edgington shared an update on the Ethereum 2.0 project yesterday, detailing the Beacon Chain test news. The update revolved around the publication of the first release candidate for Phase 0.
The post said: „Your latest news on #Ethereum 2.0 is here! https://t.co/97X85jdCzM. Sorry, it’s a little late and a little rushed. I took some time off; it was good 😎 I’m back now, renewed and looking forward to going 🚀“.
Edgington said the deposit contract was now „ready to go“ and hinted that the genesis of Beacon Chain would be available in about six to eight weeks. Of course, this is only an estimate and there is no guarantee that things will turn out that way. So far, there has been no announcement about the official launch date.
He also talked about depositing in fake contracts – a possible probability in the subsequent stages.
„Many fake deposit contracts and Launchpad front-ends will erupt in the coming days. Stay tuned for official announcements: do not send Eth for random contracts; this is not DeFi. ”
The developer emphasized the need for greater customer diversity throughout the network, saying that the collective effort would be crucial to the project’s success. He added that Prysm was still the leader after the company developed its own ETH 2.0 client.
