Ethereum’s co-founder Vitalik Buterin isn’t sure when ETH 2.0 will happen exactly but says clients can launch it alone. How exactly can they do it, we read in our ETH latest news.
One of the most asked questions in the crypto space was when will ETH. 20 happen exactly. After being delayed a few times, the exact date for the launch of ETH 2.0 is still up in the air. The co-founder Vitalik Buterin isn’t sure when it will happen but he says that it is coming with many supporters urging others for patience.
Answering “when ETH 2.0” question, Buterin literally replied with “dunno.” However, he added:
“Theoretically if the client teams get too angry at us for not saying “SHIP IT” they could just do it themselves. <shrug>”
Buterin suggested that even if the project founders don’t give an official green light for Phase 0 of ETH 2.o0 to go live, the clients can launch it anyway. According to Ethereum.org, a client is “an implementation of Ethereum that verifies all transactions in each block, keeping the network secure and the data accurate.” Buterin’s response from above seems to have been a response to the reports that smart contract auditing company Quantstamp completed their audit of Teku which is an ETH 2.0 client for institutional staking that is developed by ETH-focused blockchain company ConsenSys. According to the statements by Quantstamp CEO Richard Ma:
“Ethereum 2.0 is on track to deliver Phase 0 in the very near future. Teams have spent countless hours coordinating, testing, and working with auditing firms to ensure that the foundation of Ethereum 2.0 is ready for delivery.”
It was further said that the company found the codebase to be of the highest quality and that the Teku team resolved issues quickly like missing validation logic, errors, and unlimited inbound messaging queue which could have left individual nodes open to the DDoS attack. A week ago, ETH 2.0 and consenSys developer Ben Edgington said that the protocol’s deposit contract could be ready for launch soon. This will mark a huge step before the 0 phase launch. According to the ETH foundation researcher Danny Ryan, the event will not go live before it passes an audit of the critical crypto library that is performed by NCC Group.
With that being said, the community seems to want Phase 0 by the end of this year as ETH 2.0 researcher Justin Drake commented that the “community wants phase 0 genesis in 2020-not one day late.”
