ETH 2.0 Update - March 26, 2020
  • The Least Authority team recently completed an audit of the Ethereum 2.0 specifications.  The audit identified seven issues and made three best practice suggestions. Furthermore, the audit highlighted two areas that would benefit from further review and additional documentation: the Peer-to-peer (P2P) networking layer and the ENR system. Read the full audit report here. It is now time for multi-client testnets and the Phase 0 bug bounty program!
  • The first ETH 2.0 testnet slashing of an external validator recently occurred. The slashing was caused by a GCP instance migration, as two validators were validating behind the same key. View the slashing in the block explorer here.
  • We often perform a variety of negative testing and fuzzing to characterize the operational behavior of new chains. Recently, we *intentionally* slashed one of our ETH 2 validators. To learn more about how Staked protects against double signing, read this blog post from our CEO.
