Ethereum 2.0 is set to be launched in no-time said Quantstamp. “Ethereum 2.0 is on track to deliver Phase 0 in the very near future,” said Quantstamp CEO Richard Ma in a prepared statement.
Delivering Phase 0 of Ethereum 2.0 before the end of 2020 is a long-standing goal of the Ethereum community. Ethereum 2.0 researcher Justin Drake tweeted in July that “the community wants phase 0 genesis in 2020—not one day late. The goal is set; let’s ship.”
The Quantstamp team seem to have heard the calls. “Client teams have spent countless hours coordinating, testing, and working with auditing firms to ensure that the foundation of Ethereum 2.0 is ready for delivery,” Ma added.
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 queue, which may have left individual nodes open to DDoS attacks, errors that may have led to clients falling out of sync, and missing validation logic.
