Everything you need to know about what's coming for Ethereum 2.0 in 2020

Quick Take

  • 2020 will see the roll-out of the first phase of Eth2 – dubbed Phase 0 – possibly as early as late Q2
  • Eth2 is a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) version of the current Ethereum mainnet and introduces the concept of sharding to increase the network’s throughput
  • According to Vitalik Buterin, introducing PoS will lead to over 10 million more ETH being locked into the protocol once the two networks are integrated
  • There are a few mechanisms in place – including an anti-correlation penalty system – to deter stake concentration, although the risk is still present.
Ethereum 2.0 Phase 0 is heading toward a significant milestone in 2020.
