v1.0 eth2 testnets — Toledo and Pyrmont

This week, shopper builders led by protolambda launched the Toledo devnet — a 16k validator testnet with v1.0 mainnet configuration. Though you may sync up your favourite node to this testnet, you can’t make any validator deposits as a result of the usage of a modified, permissioned deposit contract. Toledo is for preliminary v1.0 testing and continued developer experimentation.

Subsequent week, we goal to launch Pyrmont — a 100k validator testnet mimicking mainnet circumstances as carefully as doable. As soon as Pyrmont is launched and steady, the testnet will probably be opened as much as the neighborhood. Pyrmont can function a last place to check mainnet software program releases and {hardware} setups within the run-up to mainnet launch.

As a result of Pyrmont makes use of mainnet configuration, it’s topic to the identical (gradual) activation queue mechanics you would possibly expertise on mainnet. Please be an excellent citizen and solely make one or two validator deposits. This can hold the queue occasions cheap within the subsequent few weeks and permit for a productive testbed for all customers.

Pyrmont will probably be supported not less than by means of eth2 mainnet genesis. From there, we are going to contemplate the choices accessible to assemble a long-term testnet with higher stability and UX properties. This might doubtless embody sooner queue processing and a a lot larger minimal ejection steadiness.

However till then, take pleasure in Pyrmont!
