First Ethereum 2.0 Sharding Simulation to be Demoed at Devcon

Researchers working on sharding phase 1 and 2 of ethereum 2.0 have stated the execution environment for a shard is to be demoed at Devcon in just a few days.

Will Villanueva, a coder from ConsenSys’ Quilt team which is working on the later stages of ethereum 2.0, stated:

“We were able to plug in the Eth 2, phase 2 Wasm execution engine into the shard chain/client we built in lighthouse! We have a simple, simulated Eth 2 phase 1/2 and we’re in the early stages of running an Execution Environment on it!

We’ll be showcasing it at Devcon… lots of cleanup to do, but there will be a lot of cool progress to show soon!”

The now famous Interop Meeting included “some of the people working on Ethereum 2.0 Phase 2 (the execution layer): the Quilt team from ConsenSys and the Ethereum Foundation Ewasm team. It was a great opportunity to sync up (no pun intended) with each other’s work,” according to ConsenSys. Read More...
