Ethereum’s founder Vitalik Buterin made a statement regarding the long-awaited ETH 2.0 start date. Buterin noted that he did not mention July as the start date, marking the third quarter of this year.
Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum, announced his views on the expected launch date of ETH 2.0.
Speaking at an online conference organized by CoinDesk on Monday, Buterin confirmed July for the start, when ETH 2.0 project chief-researcher Justin Drake marked an advanced date in February. Buterin replied “I think yes” to the question of whether the update is really ready.
“It is not right to go out on the stage and give history!”
ETH 2.0 testnet coordinator Afri Schoedon opposed Buterin’s comments on Twitter and said, “The last specification was not applied to any client. We could not start a coordinated testnet network yet. ” Schoedon also said, “It is not right to go to the scenes, go to the panels and then make history. I don’t think Vitalik said “July,” but I didn’t listen to the speech. ” He reacted in the form.
I didn’t say “July”
Buterin replied, “Yes, I did not say ‘July’. Maybe the word “July” may have passed in the question I was asked. But I do not remember if it was passed or not. said.
In a tweet posted by buter later, “Okay, I was asked whether I was asked” July “in the question or not. It’s my fault. ”
Schoedon coordinates Schlesi test networks, one of the many test versions of its revision before the final launch of ETH 2.0. Schoedon also said that ETH 2.0 Phase 0 could start by 2021.
Buterin finally said the following about the subject:
“I listened to the interview and the question again. The question is called “July.” This seems to be my fault because I don’t remember hearing the word ‘July’. I apologize for this. My stance here, ETH2 is on the way right now. Testnets are coming as long as there is no unexpected accident. However, we also have to follow client developers’ timelines. And if they say, “3rd quarter of this year …”, I believe them. ”
As it is known, ETH 2.0 represents a consensus algorithm that moves from Proof-of-work (PoW) to Proof-of-Stake as in Bitcoin. This transition in the early planning of Ethereum has become controversial due to delays and delayed timings.
