Prysmatic Labs is back after taking a year-long "don't use Prysm" campaign ~ Vitalik Buterin
Prysmatic labs is the Ethereum core development team working on the upcoming Proof of Stake consensys protocol and sharding .
The @prylabs team honestly deserves a lot of praise for taking a year-long "don't use Prysm" campaign on the chin and not opposing or getting publicly upset by it.— vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) May 18, 2022
Anyway, that battle is basically won now; time to switch focus to getting more diversity in execution clients. pic.twitter.com/djo8f9awz9
Bopsten - Ropsten on Beacon Chain launched
Bopsten is a semi-major version release candidate as we move into upgrading the long-standing public testnets for the Merge. To handle the merge (a shift from Proof of Work mechanism to Proof of Stake consensus mechanism after reaching TTD) of the Ropsten chain, Ethereum developers launched a Ropsten Beacon Chain (RBC) aka Bopsten.Ropsten-beacon-chain's initial specs has been merged!
Expect client releases soon. Ropsten Merge transition date is expected to be June 8.
Ropsten-beacon-chain config has been merged!— terence.eth (@terencechain) May 18, 2022
