Ethereum 2.0 Testnet Launch Imminent

Ethereum 2.0

Everything is ready to go for the launch of the ethereum 2.0 testnet in now minutes not hours.

The final stage of the genesis block launch is to begin, with it unlikely there will be a show, but there will be things.

It also has a nice slots page, which is a new name for blocks. And then the epochs, which is a grouping of these slots/blocks.

There’s also a stats page, but there probably won’t be anything on it any time soon, with the show probably beginning on the slots page.
