Eth 2.0 may have missed its latest target for a roll-out in the second quarter, but the world’s second-largest, public, decentralized blockchain platform has a new tentative launch date: July 2020.
All of the delays combined with the decision to shift from a proof-of-work system to a proof-of-stake model has sparked a debate about the direction of Ethereum. Community member Trenton Van Epps is working to debunk a number of negative viewpoints, characterizing them as misconceptions about Ethereum.
First and foremost, Van Epps says Eth 2.0 is launching, despite the setbacks, detractors and naysayers.
In a new Medium post, retweeted by Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, Van Epps says summer is the new target date.
“While it’s definitely been a long path since the rearchitecting in mid-2018 , timelines have solidified.”
