The Ethereum 2.0 research team announced the work progress of Ethereum 2.0. In cooperation with Consensys and Deep Work Studio, a beta node pledge tool for Ethereum 2.0 was launched. Users can use this tool to participate in the node verification of the ETH 2.0 testnet. The newly launched ETH 2.0 beta node pledge tool will be applicable to the Ethereum Medalla testnet. However, before launching the mainnet, researchers will continue to fine-tune the interface. Chain News previously reported that Medalla, Ethereum’s next multi-client testnet, will be launched on August 4th and requires no less than 16,384 verification nodes to participate. Medalla’s previous multi-client testnet was mainly run by the client team and EF members, but with the launch of the Medalla testnet, the stability and health of the Ethereum chain will be almost completely in the hands of the community.
