The long-awaited migration to Ethereum 2.0 is a step closer today as another recently launched testnet called Zinken has been running smoothly.
A currently running ETH 2.0 testnet called Zinken, which was launched on Monday, Oct. 12, has been ‘performing perfectly’ according to one of the developers and participants.
Zinken is a shortened testnet, just like the one before it called Spadina, which is aimed at giving client teams a chance to iron out issues in their release process. It also gives validators a chance to experience a smoother genesis prior to mainnet. As with Spadina, the primary goal of Zinken is to practice the genesis process, stated lead developer Danny Ryan in a previous blog post.

Developer Terence Tsao has recently tweeted the performance of the testing he has been running over the past 24 hours on Zinken, adding;
“Almost perfect performance on an incentivized testnet that ran by the community,”
