The eth2 deposit contract is the smart contract used to create new validators on the eth2 chain.
The deposit contract is a smart contract on the Ethereum 1.X chain that allows users to create validators in eth2 by moving ETH from Ethereum 1.X onto the eth2 Beacon Chain in 32 ETH chunks. The contract is unidirectional: once you move your ETH, it can not be withdrawn until eth2 Phase 1.5.
The deposit contract went live on November 4th, 2020. You can track the activity related to it here.
