Danny Ryan announced a Spadina dress rehearsal at Ethereum 2.0
Ethereum 2.0 coordinator Danny Ryan announced a testnet called “Spadina” on a blog post September 14th.
The testnet – which is described as the “dress rehearsal” before the mainnet was launched – will run in parallel with Medalla during its three-day life.
Named after one of Toronto’s most famous streets, the Spadina test network will offer participants the opportunity to experience deposits and the launch of the genesis block.
Ryan says that this should give them “greater peace of mind” before the eventual launch of the main network (mainnet) ETH 2.0:
“If all goes well, it should give us more peace of mind before we get into the real deal later this year.”
According reported by U.Today, the Ethereum Foundation revealed the testnet version of the Eth 2 validator, which aims to educate future validators.
He goes through the process of depositing 32 ETH in a one-sided smart contract to participate in staking among many other things.
Those who have not participated in any previously launched test networks are encouraged to try to generate and manage keys and to set up an Ethereum 2.0 client with Spadina.
While Spadina may remain active after the three-day period has ended, Ryan notes that it will not be supported by major infrastructure providers.
The launch of Ethereum 2.0 is close
The delayed ETH 2.0 is finally due to arrive in November, according to Raul Jordan of Prysmatic Lab.
After the successful launch of Medalla’s “final” testnet in early August, it is not putting the finishing touches on the update, such as fixing bugs and conducting the second security audit.
