According to rumors, Ethereum Foundation’s new user interface (UI) for the deposit contract could be officially presented at the Ethereum Community Conference 3, which is just two weeks away. The Ethereum Foundation is currently working together with Consensys on the UI for the deposit contract.
Currently, April seems to be the target date, as the Ethereum Core developers announced during an AMA in early February. The launch of Ethereum 2.0, phase 0 is currently scheduled for 30 July , the fifth anniversary of Ethereum.
Runtime Verification Inc, a start-up company that aims to use runtime verification-based techniques to improve the security, reliability and integrity of software systems, has announced that they have successfully completed the formal verification of the Ethereum 2.0 deposit contract. The contract is probably the most important smart contract for ETH 2.0, which forms the basis for phase 0 and the Beacon Chain.
