The Ethereum Network is implementing the Ethereum 2.0 roadmap

After the Istanbul hard fork was successfully activated at block 9,699,000, Ethereum’s core developer, Daniel Ryan, mentioned the latest updates on the development of Ethereum 2.0.

Ethereum 2.0 released testnet

Ryan is currently working with three Blockchain development teams, Prysmatic Labs, Sigma Prime, and Nimbus, to present test solutions for Ethereum 2.0. The Ethereum Foundation even invites all interested parties to participate in the testing process.

These three dev teams have worked extremely hard. In particular, Prysmatic Labs has used the Go language to develop the Prysm client. On the other hand, Sigma Prime team from Australia uses Rust language. Nimbus’ solutions are based on the Nim language. Therefore, clients written in different programming languages ​​will coexist in the same way as Ethereum 1.0.

Of the three tests mentioned above, the Prysmatic Labs version is the most popular as more than 100 Ethereum nodes are active in demo mode.

The single testnet is coming

Daniel Ryan also presents the next step in the evolution of Ethereum 2.0.

“It would be amazing to see all three clients operating within a single testnet,” Ryan shared.

Testnet is a free open source testing environment used to show all the features of the original blockchain. For Ethereum 1.0, the most famous trials are Kovan and Ropsten. Any fork or upgrade is first tested in the testnet sandbox before the mainnet release.
