    As a report has it, the Schlesi testnet designed for public testing of Ethereum (ETH) 2.0 has been forked.

    About a month ago, Ethereum (ETH) 2.0 entered public testing, with various development teams such as Prysmatic Labs, Sigma Prime, PegaSys, and Nimbus releasing their testnet environments for validators.

    A report that Schlesi testnet has been forked came from a known Ethereum (ETH) enthusiast, Afri Schoedon, a few hours ago.

    This scenario reportedly took place on 17th May 2020, at slot 141,184. The details of the incident was captioned in a tweet shared by Schoedon.

    At press time, this is the only fork of the Ethereum (ETH) 2.0 multi-client testnet sandbox that has been publicly revealed since it was released.

    This is an indication that one testnet was unintentionally split, which likely allowed independent validation of different slots.

    Essentially, to enter the Phase 0, which is the first stage of the Ethereum (ETH) 2.0 mainnet, a public security audit, and stable testnet are needed to be realized.

    Vitalik Buterin Reacts to the Fork

    The co-founder of Ethereum (ETH), Vitalik Buterin who has been more active on social platforms lately, especially on the Microblogging platform Twitter, reacted to the reported fork of Schlesi testnet.

    In his reaction, he said the reported incident brought the picture of the good old days to his memory. He said such things happened many times between March and April 2015, on the ETH 1 pre-launch Olympic testnet.

    “Brings me back to the good old days! (March-Apr 2015 saw such things happen many times on the eth1 pre-launch Olympic testnet),” Vitalik Buterin responded.

    The report also had some Ethereum community members debating over the good and bad side of such splits for the testing progress of the network.

    A response came from Tyler Smith of ConsenSys, which suggests that such an event is good for the research mechanisms of the Ethereum (ETH) 2.0.

    He wrote:

    “This is exactly the right attitude. Testnets are made to be broken. I was actually getting nervous that the Schlesi testnet was a little too stable.”
