Over the past day, the number of ETH blocked on the Ethereum 2.0 deposit contract has significantly increased and exceeded 568,000. Now there are enough coins to start staking.
It is interesting that only yesterday there were only 293,000 ETH on the Ethereum 2.0 deposit contract . That is, users blocked almost 300,000 coins per day to participate in staking. Given that the launch of Beacon Chain is scheduled for December 1, more coins will be added to the deposit contract.
In addition, during the day, the ETH rate increased by $ 35 and now the second cryptocurrency is trading at $ 616. Thus, more than $ 360 million has been blocked for staking.
As a reminder, the Beacon Chain will be launched in parallel with the existing Ethereum network. This way, netizens and decentralized applications will not be affected. However, this is only the first of four stages of the transition to Ethereum 2.0.
Earlier it was reported that the Ethereum Foundation is planning to sponsor projects that participate in the Ethereum 2.0 staking ecosystem.
