Prysmatic Labs Have Released Ethereum 2.0 Prysm Demo v0.0.0

In his today’s article on Medium, Raul Jordan, blockchain developer and Prysmatic Labs editor, announces the release of Prysm, v0.0.0, which will serve as the building block for all future releases as they get to production

Inside the Release

Version 0.0.0 includes a basic beacon-chain+validator demo which can do the following:

  • Spin up a beacon chain node from a genesis configuration
  • Connect a validator client to the beacon node via RPC
  • The validator client gets shuffled into a specific shardID at a given slotevery cycle transition
  • Validators propose/attest to canonical beacon blocks during their assigned slot

How to Run the Demo

Here is the instruction on running Ethereum 2.0 Prysm Demo v0.0.0.

You’ll be able to spin up a beacon node, connect 1 or more validator clients, and start getting assigned to shards where you will then create beacon blocks or vote on beacon blocks through structures called 'attestations'.

This beacon chain node+validator client system is a critical piece of consensus and coordination for all actors participating in Ethereum 2.0 and will serve as the foundation for a full-fledged, sharding system.

What's Up Next?

There is a lot to be done with respect to the randomness generation and signature aggregation on the beacon chain as well as validator rotation. This is all phase 0–1 of the Ethereum 2.0 roadmap, as sharding state execution will not come until phase 1 and 2.

Justin Sun: Tron Will Build A Monument To Remember ETH And Vitalik Buterin

Tron’s founder Justin Sun has been known to be one man who likes stokes the fires especially in regard to TRX and other cryptos. In the past, he has been quoted throwing jabs at other crypto teams like the Ethereum Foundation. He has also gone above and beyond to keep the TRX talk going online. This time around, Justin Sun is throwing some sarcasm at Vitalik Buterin and ETH. In a tweet, Justin intimated that if Tron finally succeeds, the company will be happy to erect a nice monument for Vitalik Buterin and his ETH in remembrance of his massive contribution to the crypto community. Reading between the lines, you can help but notice some tinge of sarcasm in Justin’s remarks, especially given that he has always argued that Tron will one day overtake Ethereum. When #TRON succeed, we will build a monument in memory of #ethereum! @VitalikButerin will be remembered for his tremendous contribution in #blockchain industry! #TRX #BTT https://t.co/ig3Yg50NND — Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) March 24, 2019 Vitalik’s Sentiments On the same thread, influential cryptoanalysts and enthusiast Misha Lederman was quick to throw in his input, quoting Vitalik Buterin as saying that he would be really disappointed in humanity if Tron ever beats Ethereum. He then went ahead to offer his own opinion on the matter, saying that the real question is when, not if, Tron will eventually surpass Ethereum. Reactions Justin’s tweet seems to have attracted quite some attention from across the crypto world, with various online characters coming out to give a piece of their mind. Some thought that Sun’s tweet was somewhat in bad taste and that he should instead concentrate on building his Tron empire and not attacking other people. However, there are those that agreed with him. To these, Tron is on its way to great glory and Ethereum will eventually bow to it. On the other hand, some users didn’t buy the story. They argued that Tron is still too far back away to even think of ever overtaking Ethereum. In fact, someone said that Tron can’t surpass Ethereum even in 10 years’ time. Vitalik is yet to respond to Justin Sun’s tweet, and it would be interesting to what turn the debate takes from here.
