The Ethereum programmer gave an update on the progress of Medalla’s transition and what ETH developers deem the last phase before a full-on transition to Ethereum 2.0.
“One of the exciting pieces of news from about two weeks ago is the launch of the Medalla testnet that is the largest multi-client testnet of Ethereum 2.0 and phase 0. This is the phase that introduces the scaffolding, the proof of stake parts. It’s just a matter of waiting for implementers to feel like they’ve done enough on the phase zero side and move onto phase one.”
Buterin added that the first phase did not include sharding. That process will only be implemented in phase 1. Medalla testnet is slowly advancing in its progress, and Ethereum 2.0 mainnet is currently predicted to be finalized for 2023 if all goes according to plan.
