Although December 1 has been scheduled for the deployment of phase of Ethereum 2.0, the actual deadline for the launch is 12 pm, Tuesday, November 24 GMT. For phase 0 to be launched, a total of 524,2288 ETH has to be allocated in the contract.
Data released by dune analytics have predicted a delay in the launch as it is just seven more days left. As at the time of the publication, only about 18.75% (98,304 ETH) have been deposited.

Eth2 coordinator, Danny Ryan, stated that in order to trigger genesis, there has to be a minimum of 1638432-ETH deposited. The validator deposits must happen seven days before December 1. Otherwise, genesis would kick-off after the threshold has been reached.
Another revelation by Dune Analytics shows that just 3,077 transactions by 476 single depositors have been made. There’s been a steady increase in the accumulated ETH since the contract was launched a few days ago.
There was no recorded significant participation between November 6-12, but the trend changed on the 14th and 15th of November with over 16,000 ETH sent. The data shows that there still has to be a deposit of 80% of ETH.
