New Code Released for Vlad Zamfir's Ethereum 'Casper' Upgrade

Casper, Ethereum’s Proof of Stake consensus mechanism, continues to evolve. Currently, two implementations exist: Casper the Friendly Finality Gadget (FFG), Vitlaik’s pragmatic proposal to create a hybrid Proof of Work/Proof of Work architecture for Ethereum in the near future, and Casper Correct-by-Construction (CBC), Vlad Zamfir’s highly-technical pure-PoS architecture that will one day power Ethereum exclusively. These designs and attendant code are certain to evolve a good bit over time, but what we’ve seen so far is rapid and meaningful progress.
