By Kluma | InterestingCrypto | 18 May 2020

The project developer Afri Choedon announced that a pilot blockchain cryptocurrency divided because of a failure. However, its Creator Vitalik Buterin believes that this is normal

In the test network of Ethereum 2.0 called Schlesi, there was a harfdork, which was reported by one of the developers of the project, Afri Shoedon. In his Twitter account, he wrote that yesterday, may 17, the ETH blockchain of the second version was divided into several chains on block 141 184.

Choedon explained that this occurred due to the incorrect operation of the client Geth. Altcoin Creator Vitalik Buterin added that the incident reminded him of 2015, when similar failures occurred before the launch of Ethereum.

"This takes me back to the good old days! In March-April 2015, this happened many times in the Olympic test network before the launch of ETH 1, " Buterin wrote.

Tyler Smith, a representative of ConsenSys, called this failure a positive event, since test networks are designed to detect errors. The expert added that the failure was not a big surprise for him, since the stability of Schlesi had previously caused concern.

On may 11, the media reported that the transition of Ethereum to the second version of the network may occur in July, referring to the words of the Creator of the cryptocurrency Vitalik Buterin. However, the developer himself denied this version, specifying that the update will not take place in July.
