Contract deployment Genesis deposits Bootstrap consensus
v1.0 specs launched 🚀
v1.0 spec launch
Right now, we released v1.0 of the eth2 specs, together with the mainnet deposit contract handle — 0x00000000219ab540356cBB839Cbe05303d7705Fa. eth2 may have a MIN_GENESIS_TIME of 1606824000 (or for these of you who don’t assume in unix time — December 1, 2020, 12pm UTC).
To set off genesis at the moment, there should be at the very least 16384 32-ETH validator deposits 7 days previous to December 1. If not, genesis might be triggered 7 days after this threshold has been met (every time that could be). For a extra detailed dialogue of how genesis is kicked off, see Ben Edgington’s genesis writeup.
Verify, double-check, triple-check the deposit contract handle earlier than sending any funds anyplace 🚀
