Medalla, the last testnet in the transition to Ethereum 2.0, which brought a comprehensive change in Ethereum, started working today.
Another important step has been taken on Ethereum 2.0 road today. Medalla, the last testnet of Ethereum 2.0, was released today.
Medalla will be a good experiment on how Ethereum 2.0 will work with multiple clients.
According to the Ethereum Foundation, there will be five clients at the start of the Medalla testnet: Teku, Prysm, Nimbus, Lodestar and Lighthouse.
A verifier launchpad for Medalla was released last week. It is stated that the initial aim of Launchpad is to help validators train themselves in all aspects of the process and to make it as easy as possible to become an ETH 2.0 validator, and also “We want to make sure they understand what validators are doing and why.” he said.
When Ethereum 2.0 is fully released, at least 32 ETH will be required to be confirmatory. 32 ETH winners and validators will receive ETH rewards. Exchanges are expected to do this on behalf of their users, thereby reducing the barrier of 32 ETH.
Finally, the first phase of Ethereum 2.0 is expected to be operational in late 2020 or early 2021. The results from Medalla will be decisive for the start date.
