ETH 2.0 Final Testnet Launched

The system, called Spadina, will run for three days. According to the developers, this is a dress rehearsal before the start of the main ETH 2.0 network.

The Spadina test network was launched, the final one before the release of the zero phase of Ethereum 2.0. The developers said that the network will work for three days and will become a dress rehearsal before the launch of ETH 2.0. It will allow the network deployment and deposit contract processes to be re-run.

The level of participation of validators is still estimated at 35%, which is significantly lower than expected. This situation was observed during the launch phase of Medalla, which continues to work in parallel with Spadina, but later it stabilized. In total, Spadina has 2856 validators who contributed 91 392 test ETH for staking.

Earlier, Prysmatic Labs developer Raoul Jordan said preparations for the launch of Ethereum 2.0 are going according to plan. The release of the zero phase of ETH 2.0 should take place in November this year.
