Ethereum Gets Second ETH 2.0 Testnet Courtesy of Prysmatic Labs

The Ethereum network’s transition to a proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus system is getting closer and closer.

Prysmatic Labs, the team developing the “Prysm” Ethereum sharding client, have released a testnet for the so-called Phase 0, or Beacon Chain, of Ethereum’s upcoming “ETH 2.0” Serenity upgrade. Serenity will see Ethereum embrace a trio of scaling solutions in sharding, Casper, and Plasma. Phase 0 of the upgrade will center around transitioning to PoS away from proof-of-work (PoW) mining.
