Ethereum 2.0’s (ETH 2.0) first phase is approaching, but there’s still a major role for Ethereum 1.0 to play until the two versions’ best parts gradually merge, according to Jacek Sieka, the Head of Research at Nimbus, an infrastructure project of The Status Network.
Nimbus is working on a solution for Ethereum’s (ETH) scalability issue and developing clients for both its versions.
“We expect ETH 1.0 to play a major role in the foreseeable future, but slowly converging to a single “Ethereum” over time as the good parts of each version come together,” Sieka told Cryptonews.com.
There’s some unifying networking technology available, such as the modular peer-to-peer networking stack libp2p, and Sieka said that Ethereum 1.0 and 2.0 could be bridged over the same network, which would result in increased security, resilience, and network participation. “We anticipate similar simplifications across all areas of Ethereum,” he added.
However, he said, “the final 20% of any phase always ends up being the largest challenge,” and for ETH 2.0 at this point “that means ironing out any remaining issues, agreeing on one specifications version of…
