Ethereum 2.0 already has its first permanent test


Key facts:
  • Along with Ropsten, two more ETH 1.0 proof-of-stake networks will be migrated to ETH 2.0.

  • It is expected that by June 8, the Ropsten network will finally migrate from ETH 1.0 to ETH 2.0.

Ethereum 2.0 already has a new testnet: Ropsten. This is the first network of its kind that has been designed to last over time (others have been released temporarily). There, in a few days, you can see the implementation of the merger (merging).

Ropsten is one of the testnets already in version 1.0 of Ethereum. Unlike other networks, such as Kintsugi or Kiln at the time, and beyond shadow thorns Reported by CriptoNoticias, Ropsten will be a network where step-by-step progression from ETH 1.0 with Proof of Work (PoW) to ETH 2.0 with Proof of Stake (PoS). This network will be in effect throughout the lifecycle of the “new Ethereum”.

The configuration block of the Ropsten Beacon Chain (the name of the Ethereum 2.0 network) was officially validated yesterday, May 30, as reported by the official portal of the Ethereum Foundation. At the same time, the Also published is the software through which auditors can be implemented.

The Ethereum Foundation requires contract operators to refer to their clients’ documentation for specific guidance on this transition.

Additionally, they “strongly” recommend dealers (those who have deposited 32 ETH in an Ethereum 2.0 smart contract to become validators) to “run the consolidation on Ropsten and other test networks before the Ethereum mainnet goes live.” Evidence of participation.

The hard bomb will be tested in Robsten

Also, at the time of launch, it was reported The Bomb difficulty (Protocol that will stop Proof of Work mining in Ethereum), to be activated on June 2 at Ropsten for ETH 1.0. It is estimated that the transition period will end on June 8. By this date, the merger protocol will enter into force. There the Ethereum 1.0 Ropsten network, which will merge with the Ropsten Beacon Chain, will stop.

After Ropsten, two more networks (Goerli and Sepolia) will undergo this process. The success or failure of this first test network to test the transition to Ethereum 2.0 will allow the dates of integration into other test networks to be estimated.

This year the merger will come to the Ethereum mainnet

As recently revealed by CriptoNoticias, The merger is expected to finally reach Ethereum In the second half of this year.

Network developers are taking precautions for this. However, not everything is ready yet to make the final proof-of-participation transition. this is the reasonfor the difficulty of the bomb, Activation scheduled for July 1It can be postponed for two months.
