Ethereum 2.0 ready to launch

Smart contract auditing company Quantstamp has told that Ethereum 2.0 is almost ready for launch. The announcement followed Quantstamp’s finalized audit of Teku, the Ethereum 2.0 client developed by ConsenSys. Teku is a full Ethereum 2.0 client built to meet institutional needs and security requirements to bring staking services to businesses.

Quantstamp CEO Richard Ma informed that “Ethereum 2.0 is on track to deliver Phase 0 in the very near future.” Presenting Phase 0 of Ethereum 2.0 before the end of 2020 is a long-term goal of the Ethereum community. The Teku audit involved enforcing consensus rules and maintaining the code and controls required for rewards and penalties.

Post-audit, Quantstamp made several findings, noting that the codebase was “of the highest quality.” When issues were discovered, the Teku development team reportedly resolved them quickly.

Resolved findings included an unlimited inbound messaging chain, which may have left separate nodes open to DDoS attacks, errors that may have led to clients falling out of sync, and missing validation logic.
