Core Devs Discuss Ethereum 2.0 Release; Will ETH Blockchain's 5th Anniversary Be The Date?

    The release of Ethereum 2.0 is currently topping the list of awaited milestones to be achieved in the coming year. On December 15th, the Ethereum Foundation developers held a discussion focusing on when the release would occur. Justin Drake, an Ethereum 2.0 contributor and a researcher with the Ethereum Foundation voiced his opinion on when the release should occur.

    The Ideal Gift for the 5th Birthday

    Justin began the discussions in the sanctioned Github Ethereum repository by providing some of the Ethereum 2.0 specifications. Among the details released included a new type of ETH network that is currently under development. He went on to note that July 30th, which also serves as the official 5th anniversary of the blockchain platform, would serve as the ideal date for its release.

    In another repository dedicated to Ethereum 2.0 discussions, he went on to state why he had settled on that particular date. The only indicator that he was able to provide was that it had undergone 3 months of dependable operation. He commented that he was hopeful that the multi-client testnet would be set up sometime in the first quarter.

    He estimated that the official release date would be in the second quarter.

    Could It Be Sooner?

    Danny Ryan, an Ethereum 2.0 major contributor as well as a researcher at the Ethereum Foundation stated that:

    “There is a possibility that the Ethereum 2.0 mainnet could be released a bit earlier.”

    “I am optimistic of this as opposed to the date that has been provided in the pull-request.”

    The other developers taking part in the Ethereum 2.0 discussions were, however, a bit reluctant to provide specific launch dates. Many stated that they would provide their estimates as the development of the mainnet progressed a little bit more.
