December 1, 2020 Ethereum 2.0 Beacon Chain launches.

This morning, the Ethereum 2.0 Beacon Chain went live following a last-minute push last week to meet the staking threshold required for launch. The move is part of Ethereum 2.0’s ‘Phase 0’ launch. There are currently around 21,000 validators operating on the network, with an average stake of 32.01 ETH, only slightly above the 32 ETH minimum.
