Welcome to the Prysmatic Labs official documentation portal

What is Prysm?#

The Prysm project is a full-featured implementation for the Ethereum 2.0 network written entirely in the Go programming language. Created by Prysmatic Labs, Prysm implements the official Ethereum 2.0 specification, which is the product of an ongoing collective research and development effort by various teams across the Ethereum ecosystem including the Ethereum Foundation.

This documentation#

This manual is aimed at developers interested in participating in Ethereum 2.0's consensus, which involves locking up a 32 ETH deposit to vote and produce blocks using our software. For more detailed information on the most recent research developments and understanding what Ethereum 2.0 is, it is recommended to review Eth2Info and the official Ethereum 'Serenity' 2.0 specification repository.


Prysm has two official channels for release updates: our Discord and our mailing list. All releases will be notified via those channels.
