Sigma Prime (SigP) Lighthouse Releases As A New Open Source Ethereum 2.0 Client

Sigma Prime Releases New Open Source Ethereum 2.0 Client Lighthouse

The company Sigma Prime (SigP) has released a new open source Ethereum 2.0 client known as ‘Lighthouse.’ The firm is located in Australia and developers are working in many different programming projects. SigP and its team explain what they tried to build, the future projects in which they are working and their roadmap for the coming months.

The team explained that Ethereum 2.0 and the idea behind it caught their attention. Because of this, they decided to start contributing to it. And indeed, after hours spent working on it, they were able to realize their vision on the matter.

About this, the team explained:

“We decided to go ahead with the client build and renamed the repo to lighthouse, figuring that a seaside lighthouse would be rusty beacon of sorts. The project was born.”

Moreover, they talked about all what they have achieved by working on this project. For example, they were able to develop a SimpleSerialize Rust Library and research the serialization formats for P2P messaging. Additionally, the team discovered a bias in the pseudo-random validated shuffling algorithm.

In the future, the developers want to implement a syncing logic and also produce as many design artifacts as possible. Moreover, they explained that the team will witness a benchmark on Beacon Chain block validation. Other works are related to SimpleSerialize and documentation of the validator role-delegation function, which might be improved.

Vitalik Buterin himself talked about Ethereum 2.0 at the beginning of 2017. Several developers from all over the world, including PegaSys, Prysmatic Labs, Status and Nimbus decided to create a beacon chain and sharding client for Ethereum 2.0.

Another important player in the market, Rocket Pool – which works as a decentralized Ethereum Proof of Stake (PoS) pool – informed about the latest developments on the Ethereum 2.0. They highlighted the decentralization of the upcoming Ethereum client compared to other projects.
