Prysmatic Labs builds technical infrastructure for the Ethereum blockchain. Its work on the Ethereum blockchain focuses on usability, security, and reliability as fundamental pillars supported by extensive testing and carefully designed code. With diverse backgrounds ranging from distributed systems to cloud computing, the Prysmatic Labs team emphasizes a test-driven approach towards implementing the future of Ethereum.
The Prysm project is a Go implementation of the Ethereum 2.0 protocol as detailed by its official specification. It utilizes the best-in-class tools for production servers and interprocess communication, using Google's gRPC library, BoltDB as an optimized, persistent, key-value store, and libp2p by Protocol Labs for all peer-to-peer networking.
Launched December 1, 2020, eth2 is a publicly accessible network running multiple client implementations participating in Ethereum 2.0 consensus based on the formal specification for the protocol. The official and only validator deposit contract is 0x00000000219ab540356cbb839cbe05303d7705fa.
Ethereum 2.0 APIs are a collection of schema-based, protobuf APIs aimed to standardize the efforts for a common API interface used to query information about the blockchain.
