The Ethereum 2.0 Testnet is live and runs very well, today, everything is running absolutely smoothly – including the fairly effective time management of the streams, from which the following image comes from.
About 2,000 people live on and even more about the Ethstaker-Discord with the launch of the Ethereum 2.0 Testnet Genesis block.
Block zero, Ethereum 2.0 testnet, August 2020
We think that this is the Genesis Block, because he is not a parent root, and because he Block zero is called – which, as far as we can see, here are no Easter candies, but a lot of roots, with which we in the coming weeks and months, probably a lot more familiar to be.
You can see that it has eth1-data, and there is also a guy named Randao (Randomizer cryptography).
The Graffiti is only the zero address if you switch to hex. This can probably carry the data without the slashes, as you see below in the picture.
Epoch zero, Ether 2.0 test network, August 2020
What exactly is it, you will know in the coming days and months – but it is a collection or a control point from quite a few blocks, 31, which make this Epoch zero.
It is therefore Ethereum 2.0, the skeleton that contains the Sharding but to concentrate only to the Staker””.
As you can see, there were already three eras and 110 blocks, so it runs and moves it further.
However, it is a test network, there will be problems, and how many, or how strongly, depends on the Client, so all five will be tested with Loadstar is a kind of a new Client, so we would first have to select Prysm, Lighthouse, Nimbus, Teku.
We are note sure that soon there will be many opinions – but that it is a Testnet, and all the Teams are very helpful and in the event of disagreement of law are accessible, so that in contrast to Google Support, maybe, even the Client coder will come for help.
If we were so, Danny, Ryan, we would say: break it all, if you can, because this is exactly what is going on here, and make sure you tell the Team every little thing.
And control also ensure that you have fun doing it – because after these two years of hard work, we can enjoy all of this as well.
