Phase 0 is coming...

Seeking Yield by Staked - Issue 38: ⏳ Ethereum 2.0 Update, πŸ€– Follow @RAYStats on Twitter, πŸ“ˆ Four Months of Terra's CHAI, πŸ“Š Current Yields, & More

This is the thirty-eighth issue of Seeking Yield by Staked, a weekly update about the most interesting things happening in crypto asset staking and lending.

⏳ Ethereum 2.0 Update

Phase 0 is approaching. Recently, Danny Ryan from the Ethereum Foundation published a Ethereum 2.0 update which stated that the deposit contract has been written, tested, and formally verified. Additionally, Danny wrote they are working to allow the BLS standardization to stablize prior to launch. 

While some components still need to be finalized, the deposit contract does not need to be put into production until Phase 0 launch is near. Thus, the focus on standardization is not expected to have any effect on the Phase 0 launch date.

A multi-client public testnet is expected to launch soon after the removal of crosslinks entirely from Phase 0 is completed. More on the change is available in the post.

Stay tuned for more information from about staking ETH as Phase 0 approaches!
