Augur deployment on the main Ethereum network will require the migration of all current REP token balances to a new REP token contract. It will happen on July 9. The automatic migration of REP balances will kick off with an indefinite freeze of the current REP token contract. The new token contract will be placed inside the genesis Augur universe.

REP holders and users of exchanges (centralized or non-custodial decentralized) don't need to take any actions to prepare for the migration. For special kinds of exchanges like EtherDelta, ForkDelta, IDEX and OasisDEX the users are advised to withdraw their REP funds from the exchange contract until July 9.

The migration should not take more than a few hours, and once Augur is deployed and migration is finalized, the platform goes live on the main Ethereum network. As for the market parameters of Augur, at the moment of publication they are as follows:

Average price 38.88 USD
Market cap 427,666,800 USD
Volume (24H) 24,545,100 USD

Buterin to Propose Way to Speed Up ETH 2.0 Migration

Vitalik Buterin,creator of Ethereum, believes the eth1 system can exist as a zero shard in eth2

Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin proposed a solution that allows you to quickly get rid of the Proof-of-Work (PoW) algorithm chain and move everything in Ethereum 2.0 to Proof-of-Stake (PoS).

According to him, the eth1 system can exist as a zero shard in eth2.

Validators who choose to participate in eth1 will be able to register as friendly. They are expected to support the full eth1 node in addition to the eth2 node.

A full eth1 node will load all blocks of the zero shard and maintain the updated state of the old circuit.

Buterin believes that his proposal does not make any changes to the planned procedure for the transition from eth1 to eth2. Only software for stateless clients and witness size changes in the eth1 protocol are required.
