Cardano Founder Charles Hoskinson Says Ethereum 2.0 Will Launch No Earlier Than 2023, More Likely 2024

While the Beacon chain launched last year, enthusiasts of the project are expecting the second phase of the upgrade – the merge to go live in earnest.

At the moment, the development team is working round the clock to ensure the Merge phase launches without any issue and has been working towards achieving that goal in recent times.

The first rehearsal for the Merge was completed recently on the Ropsten test network.  The test network successfully executed the merge between the existing PoW chain and the Beacon PoS chains – a move similar to the process that the ETH 2.0 will undergo on the main chain in the coming months.

The Ropsten network just merged!

One of the last testnets until we merge on the #Ethereum mainnet🐼

Hoskinson Still Focused on Vasil Hard Fork

Meanwhile, despite Hoskinson commenting on one of his projects, the IOG CEO is still focused on the development of his flagship crypto project, Cardano.

The Cardano team is working relentlessly to ensure that the Vasil Hard Fork is launched without any issues later this month. As disclosed by Hoskinson, the Vasil Hard Fork Event has reached its final stages and will be implemented at the appropriate time come June 29.
