Ethereum 2.0 Moves Closer To Launch, As Foundation Prepares For The Live "Dress Rehearsal"..

Ethereum 2.0 launch of eth 2
Ethereum 2.0 continues to move closer to launch with what the Ethereum Foundation is calling the "dress rehearsal" which will come in the form of a new testnet.  They announced:

"We realize that both the engineers and the community could use one more public testnet launch before mainnet to run through the motions. At the same time, we want to avoid disrupting Medalla’s momentum. We’ve therefore opted for a shortlived dress rehearsal that will run in parallel to Medalla later this month. Welcome Spadina!

Spadina will be a (primarily) mainnet configuration testnet with a 3 day end-of-life (EOL). The main objective is to give us all another chance to go through one of the more difficult and risky parts of the process – deposits and genesis – before we reach mainnet. If all goes well, it should give us greater peace of mind before we jump into the real deal later this year."

Developers experienced debugging testnets are invited to participate.

There's also an additional $15,000 in payouts being offered for those who can help gather data using the Medalla eth 2.0 testnet.

Medalla and Spadina testnets will operate at the same time, with their features eventually being merged for the final launch.

"The State Of Ethereum" - What Happened in 2019, What We Hope Will Happen In 2020...

Matthew Tan and Wee Chuan Tan from present the "State Of Ethereum" at Devcon.

They look at Ethereum's growth (and no one is in a better position to monitor this than Etherscan), as well as overall changes in the user demographics as Ethereum and crypto have gone mainsteam.

Then they discuss some of the challenges Ethereum has overcome, the new challenges ahead - and how they hope to overcome those as well.
