The developers of Ethereum met on Tuesday to compare research on the possible merger of Eth 1x and Eth 20

After two months of hard work, time and effort, we are happy to say the CoinDesk Ethereum 20 validator node is set up and our 32 ETH is officially staked

Now that CoinDesk is queuing for validators to join the network, we expect our operations to receive rewards in about two weeks for real-time updates on the status of CoinDesk Eth 20 Validator, this information can be found on BeaconScan or Beaconcha Search for our public validation key

This Thursday you can also download and listen to our first podcast episode of the series “Mapping Out Eth 2 ”0“ We will discuss in more detail how CoinDesk’s Eth 2 roll out is planned0 Validator Node came along with CoinDesk Director of Engineering Spencer Beggs

Ethereum 20 developers have not rested on their laurels since the Beacon Chain Dec was deployed 1

On Tuesday, Eth 20 researchers gathered online to regroup and discuss long-term thinking about shards and a possible merger of Eth 1x blockchain and the beacon chain in 2021

Presentations followed on three specific topics: the math needed to support the sharding, the sharding itself, and a newer line of logic to drive the eventual merging of Eth 1x into Eth 20 is called an executable beacon chain

Specifically, Feist gave an analysis of a polynomial expression known as Kate obligations (pronounced kah-tay) for Eth 20 customer teams who may need to code the math into their projects in the near future

These polynomial commitment schemes, also known as KZG commitments, offer a computationally favorable yet robust framework for securing data in the 64 independent blockchains, which are called shards and are not yet anchored in Eth 20
Kate commitments are believed to be a superior alternative to fraud evidence or Merkle roots usually used to verify the authenticity of data contained in a block or shard, as Vitalik recently noted in a blog post >

Although still referred to as “magic math”, fundamentally similar ideas are already being used for knowledge-free proof schemes like PLONK, said Vitalik Buterin on the conference call

The conversation then turned to a recent blog post by Buterin on Data Availability Sampling (DAS), a scheme for verifying “the availability of large amounts of data without a single node personally downloading all data”

In other words, how do validators know which block is valid if they don’t have all the information about the history of the chain? Nodes with only partial histories, such as B. Light clients need a method to protect themselves from malicious actors

Buterin suggests using a technology called ‘erasure coding’ “This technology – generally similar to fraud detection – enables auditors to likely guarantee that votes cast on data processed by the chain are not malicious In addition, erasure coding and DAS allow validators to accept or reject data even if a complete data set is not available

The proposal is known as the executable beacon chain, and it is a technical way to take advantage of the best parts of Eth 20 – its functional proof-of-stake consensus mechanism (PoS) – and the most functional part of Eth 1x – its Data execution, also known as its ability to execute transactions – and merge them for an accelerated transition to a better functioning Eth 20 network

The current Eth 20 roadmap calls for transactions and account data (executable AKA data) to be implemented after Eth 2 is deployed0 64 Shards This proposal would include these functions directly in the beacon chain itself, which would be faster

It is comparable to a jet with Eth 1x being the “engine” that processes transactions while the beacon chain acts as the wings and rudders that turn the network back and forth

On the call, Ethereum Foundation researcher Guillaume Ballet and ConsenSys researcher Mikhail Kalinin described an early prototype called “Catalyst” The model is basically a stripped-down version of the popular Eth 1x Client Geth paired with a code bridge to the Beacon Chain

Currently, Catalyst is still in testing. In fact, Ballet identified some significant hurdles before the executable beacon chain becomes a viable merge solution, such as incompatibilities between Geth and the beacon chain or even accidental block reorganizations

There are over 77 on Ethereum 2800 active validators0 who earn 0.0075 ETH per day, or about $ 1147 on average. The combined income of all validators on Eth 20 in the past seven days was over 4600 ETH worth over $ 68 million at the time of writing

It is worth analyzing how these numbers could fluctuate in excess of 95% given the continued influx of new validators and the consistency of the network participation rate

Validator rewards correlate positively with the number of blocks that are generated on the Ethereum 2. However, this number since the second day the network went into operation was around 7100 blocks more or less the same throughout

Assuming that the number of blocks produced per day does not change, the total validator rewards also correlate positively with the number of validators participating in the network. The more validators actively develop the beacon chain and produce new blocks, the more more rewards are generated overall by Eth 2.0 network

The average number of rewards in ETH that a single validator can receive for Eth 20 is negatively correlated with the total amount of stake that secures the network, the higher the amount of ETH included in Ethereum 20, the lower is the number of rewards a single Validator can earn, although overall the total amount of rewards generated by the network for all Validators has increased

To further illustrate the competing forces acting on the Validator’s rewards, I use the stakeout calculator for Beaconchaum to generate a few estimates of my annual percentage return as the Eth 2 0 Validator

Let’s say I’m doing my own independent validation operations without giving a percentage of my rewards to a staking-as-a-service provider, and having a consistent network participation rate of 97% and the total amount of ETH put on the network being 25 million , I will earn 973% APR

(Note: the total ETH0 set on Ethereum 2 is not the same amount as the total ETH0 deposit contract used in Ethereum 2, the latter in the Pulse Check graphic is a higher number that shows the use of all Eth 20 validators, whether pending or active, while the former only make up the use of active Eth 2.0 validators who have passed the queue for entry into the network)

It is highly unlikely that the total amount of ETH placed on the network will stay at 2.5 million. Hundreds of new validators are added every day, each setting 32 ETH0 So a more realistic assumption is that the current total number of ETHs on the Beacon Chain set ETH will double in summer or autumn

At around 5 million ETH, which of 155000 active validators are used, the APR drops to 688%, all other factors are the same

One final note on this subject of the Validator Income Forecasts: I have not made any assumptions about the ETH price For all these calculations, I used the ETH spot price at the time of writing

While I’m confident that my estimates are based on most points on the last two months of data (the network participation rate, the number of blocks produced, the number of active validators and the total number of ETH deployments in the beacon chain ) in the near future) I am not at all sure of my assumptions about the ETH price, which will hit another all-time high above 1Has reached 500 USD
