    Ethereum 2.0, the Proof-of-Stake successor of modern Ethereum is anticipated and mysterious for the community at the same time. But step-by-step its details become known.

The Ethereum (ETH) network is preparing itself for the most radical update in its history - switching from Ethereum 1.0 to Ethereum 2.0. This may occur in 2020 after the last Ethereum 1.0 hard fork. Carl Beekhuizen of the Ethereum Foundation's Research and Development (R&D) Department recently shared some details on the status of the future network.

Three Steps to the New Ethereum

Since the design of Ethereum 2.0 will be quite different from what we have seen with Ethereum 1.0, the migration process will take a significant amount of time. At the moment, developers plan to organize it in three stages.

During Phase 0, or "Beacon Chain", the interaction between validators and the coordination of shards will be managed. Mr. Beekhuizen added that "the beacon chain is the source of ground truth" for Ethereum 2.0.

During Phase 1, the data will migrate to newly designed components from the existing ETH. Finally, Phase 2 will upgrade Ethereum 2.0 from a robust database to a fully decentralized computing platform.

Mr. Beekhuizen also mentioned the progress with these stages:

At the time of writing, Phase 0 is nearing launch as developers put the finishing touches on the client software. Meanwhile, the specification for Phase 1 is being completed, and Phase 2 is under active R&D, said Carl Beekhuizen.

Validators' Mission 

The new ETH will be a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) network, where all transactions will be approved by validators. Mr. Beekhuizen says that the design of Ethereum 2.0 will allow a "million" validators to simultaneously act on the network. In order to avoid the system from overloading, all validators will interact with the main network through "committees".

Ethereum 2.0 makes the distinction between nodes and validator clients, and validators will need both in order to perform their duties. Each validator will need to stake exactly 32 ETH to a validator deposit contract.

Therefore, people who wish to stake more ETH will need to run multiple validator instances. The node-client separation allows such users to only run a single beacon node with multiple validators connected to it, thereby reducing computation, memory, and storage requirements.

According to Carl Beekhuizen, the network will be enough reliable to survive World War III, unsophisticated enough to run on a laptop, and fraud-resistant enough to assume that validators will be lazy and take bribes.

ETH is currently worth $151.3 USD, so you can become a validator on Ethereum 2.0 network for only $4,842 USD. Does this sound interesting to you? Share your thoughts on Twitter!

    The Bitcoin price could soon touch $7,800 if bulls persist, but this move could be a short-lived one

Popular crypto trader Wendy O recently predicted that the price of Bitcoin would "rocket up" if it managed to surge above the $7,400 level.

Shortly after that, the BTC price did rise above the aforementioned level, currently sitting at $7,444, according to CoinStats data

If the aforementioned forecast turns out to be accurate, Bitcoin traders could soon see another fakeout, which would be similar to the one that took place on Dec. 4. As reported by U.Today, BTC printed a massive green candle in less than a minute, but this unexpected pump quickly evaporated.

Earlier today, multiple traders predicted that Bitcoin was about to make a big move in either direction, but $7,800 seems to be the main area of interest for them. The leading cryptocurrency hasn't touch this level since Nov. 30.
