Paul Hauner of Sigma Prime joins the podcast to talk about Ethereum 2.0. Sigma Prime is building the Lighthouse client which is an eth2 client built in Rust. We spend most of the time focused on phase 0 and what is involved with the initial release. Paul talks about the testnet they have been running with 16,000 validators and shares good info on the hardware requirements for stakers. He gives an update on what is left before launch and we talk about what the user experience will be like for those wanting to stake ETH.
