• The Next Steps Towards Ethereum 2.0’s Mainnet Ethereum Foundation has shared this

  • Tim Beiko, Ethereum 2.0 researcher and Ethereum Foundation coordinator, published a recap of the Amphora devnet launch. Why is this a significant step toward Ethereum 2.0?

    The workshop on amphoras has been completed successfully.

    Mr. Beiko took to Twitter to share his blog post about the Amphora workshop, which launched the Ethereum 2.0 Merge interoperable devnet.

    Fresh off the press: here’s a recap of the #amphora interop event 🏺 highlighting the next steps to The Merge, with links to devnets and an A+ infographic by @trent_vanepps. Enjoy 😁! https://t.co/L66OymXFmA— Tim Beiko | timbeiko.eth (@TimBeiko) October 15, 2021

    As a result, Ethereum’s (ETH) core developer community has reached the final stage of its incentivized testing, known as “devnets.” Ethereum 2.0 devnets should be regarded as “public networks with hardened specifications for community testing.”

    Besu, Erigon, EthereumJS, Geth, Nethermind, Nimbus, Lighthouse, Lodestar, Quilt, Prysm, and Teku were among the teams present at the Amphora meetup.

    Amphora’s agenda included five milestones (M1-M5), all of which were successfully completed.

    Pithos has 10,000 validators and 100 nodes.

    To reach the M5 milestone, a network of 10,000 validators distributed across 100 nodes launched on top of proof-of-work (PoW) consensus, successfully transitioned to proof-of-stake (PoS), and completed the chain.

    Pithos, a more stable version of the Amphora testnet, was launched on October 14, 2021, to facilitate future experiments.

    As previously reported by U.Today, Ethereum 2.0 Merge was successfully activated on Oct. 8, 2021, in an interoperable multi-client testnet in a secret location.
