Heads up, we are ripping out Whisper from the go-ethereum code base. Will move it into its own repo and archive it for posterity, add some links to current work done by @ethstatus. All in all SHH died a long time ago and there’s no point to tiptoe around it. #Ethereum

The Ethereum 2.0 final testnet is set to go live on Aug 4th. If successful, we may see the launch of the Mainnet as early as Nov 4th.Already in June the testnets had over 20,000 validators which is a huge accomplishment.#Ethereum and #DeFi will spark the next bullrun! $ETH
