The developers have denied information about the shift in the timing of the launch of Ethereum 2.0 due to an incident on the testnet
An incident on the Medalla testnet prior to the launch of Ethereum 2.0 phase zero on the mainnet will not affect the timeline previously outlined by the developers. Raoul Jordan, the editor of the Prysmatic Labs startup, announced this..
According to him, the failure in the clock of the Prysm node resulted in “a carnage with more than 3,000 cases of validator clipping.” Jordan acknowledged that the discovery of this bug in the cramp was extremely favorable, as on the main network, where cryptocurrency costs real money, the consequences could be catastrophic..
Representatives of other projects did not miss the opportunity to cast a shadow on the prospects for Ethereum 2.0. Bitcoin SV resource CoinGeek said Ethereum 2.0 was not ready to launch and predicted significant delays, while the current Ethereum network was unable to effectively handle the sudden surge in transaction volume..
However, Prysmatic Labs believes that reports of the consequences of the bug are grossly exaggerated. Jordan described the past week as “eventful”, “providing a wonderful learning experience to prevent this situation from happening again, especially on the main web.”.
He also noted that the system for synchronizing the time of nodes through the server initially seemed to be a good solution, but later it became a single point of failure, leading to the inoperability of the entire network. At the same time, he calls the messages about the “death” of the testnet unreliable, since connecting a sufficient number of validators will allow it to return to a fully operational state.
By the time of publication, the testnet has been resumed with a validator participation rate of up to 70% in recent hours, however, developers are still waiting for additional nodes to be connected to ensure stability.
Talking about the timing of the launch of Ethereum 2.0, Jordan noted that what happened “does not fundamentally affect the date.” “We believe that the expected start time of 2-3 months after the release of Block Zero at Medalla is still ideal. The public will be presented with a list of requirements for the launch of ETH2. The Medalla incident will definitely bring many new points to the list in terms of sustainability, customer safety and proper release, ”he added..
