ConsenSys developer puzzled over Ethereum 2.0 launch delay
Developer Ben Edgington expressed bewilderment at the statement of Ethereum 2.0 coordinator Danny Ryan about the need to postpone the launch of the deposit contract for several weeks due to the lack of audit results of one of the cryptographic libraries.
Danny said the rollout was delayed a bit to allow the audit of the Blst crypto library to be completed first. I don’t know why it became a blocking factor, because neither the deposit contract nor the official deposit toolkit use this library, ”Edgington wrote..
Ryan later did not comment on the comments, but Edgington said publicly, “I have some responsibility for coordinating all Eth2-related activities at ConsenSys. This does not concern a few people, not a few moving elements, and requires significant planning. Staying in limbo as a program manager is a nightmare. In addition, we (the community) are ready (as it seems to me from the perspective of a customer’s product owner). Let’s do that”.
Responding to claims that he is guided solely by the desire to reach a key point, Edgington wrote: “But we have already come to that. At the current stage, this is no longer a prediction, but, perhaps, an expression of indignation due to the fact that no one has pulled the trigger yet. “.
Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin also noted earlier this week that the Quantstamp auditor approved the launch of Ethereum 2.0. “In theory, if customer teams get too angry with us for not saying ‘launch’, they can do it themselves,” he wrote..
“Basically, one or more customer teams can deploy a contract, release and run the chain. Access is not limited, right? But it will be much better if we move together, ”Edgington added..
