PoS Round-Up is our focused biweekly report on the major news in and around the Proof of Stake ecosystem
The amount of ETH deposited to the Ethereum 2.0 deposit contract rocketed past 524,288 yesterday, cementing December 1 as the network launch date. The final 25% of the required ETH was deposited in just four hours.
We’ll be hosting a live launch party to watch the genesis block make its appearance. Keep an eye on our social media for the announcement!
Bits & Pieces
- Last week, members of the Ethereum Foundation’s Ethereum 2.0 researchers team gave an AMA to field questions from the community before launch.
- More Ethereum addresses were created in 2020 than ever before, and there are now more Ethereum addresses than Bitcoin addresses.
- ETH has been migrating from exchanges to smart contracts.
- Over the past month, the most popular Ethereum dapps, such as Uniswap and Compound, garnered more than a million active users.

Tezos has successfully implemented the Delphi upgrade, decreasing gas consumption by 75%. Because there is a cap on the amount of gas that can be consumed in a single Tezos transaction, this reduction will enable developers to deploy more complex smart contracts. Supporters hope the upgrade will pave the way for the network to claim a stake in the DeFi ecosystem, which is currently dominated by Ethereum.

The Solana Foundation has released details regarding its automated delegation strategy geared toward increasing the network’s decentralization and censorship resistance. The Foundation plans to delegate 100,000,000 SOL, more than 80% of treasury funds, using an “autonomous script” that will dynamically delegate funds to maximize the number of unique nodes that make up 33% or more of the total stake on the network. This number is the number of nodes that would theoretically need to be controlled by an attacker to compromise the network.
