What is Ethereum 2.0: A Reading of EIP-2982 with u/Superphiz

Overview

Trying to keep up with Ethereum can be a difficult task. There are so many new and exciting things happening in and around the ecosystem that it can be difficult at times to remember what’s what.

Unvetica was lucky enough to spend some time with u/Superphiz who, among other things, is a moderator for the Ethereum Staking Community on Reddit. We read through the EIP-2982 Protocol which is the formal protocol proposal for Ethereum 2.0: Serenity.
