Etherum 2.0 begins its first phase today, the launch of the Ethereum Beacon Chain. The PoS Beacon Chain is officially the first phase of a total of six that are part of several annual upgrades to Ethereum 2.0.
The founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, is not hiding his enthusiasm and informed that at the time when the beacon chain was launched, the PoW difficulty of the ETH network had reached the new ATH.
At the time of launch, the second most visited (in October) crypto exchange Coinbase also came with a big announcement, which informs through its blog that it intends to support ETH2 through staking and trading.
In this way, Coinbase will allow trading between ETH2 / ETH and all other supported currencies.
According to the latest information, there is only one hour left until the official launch of ETH 2.0.
