After years of researching the Ethereum’s node bugs and the client’s inconveniences and frustrations, an Ethereum 2.0 upgrade is the perfect troubleshooting Proof of Work fixer. Not long ago, the Ethereum 2.0 network upgrade went live with an official test network. Developers have been doing a tremendous job catching mission-critical bugs in the code ever since.
It started as the biggest upgrade testnet launch for Eth 2.0. All the bugs found were challenging for the Ethereum 2.0 Lighthouse client’s developer team. They described the one that can cause nodes to crash as an “interesting and elusive bug.”
Mendalla was the final testnet before the Etherum 2.0. All of the bugs and unexpected issues on the Medalla network thus far are relatively minor and give no cause for concern. Medalla initially joined, by five clients, including Prysmatic Labs’ Prysm, ChainSafe’s Lodestar, PegaSys’ Teku, Status’ Nimbus, and Sigma Prime’s Lighthouse, was not centrally coordinated by developer teams.
The developers admitted that they run 25 other proof-of-stake networks and running in testnets is no news to them,” said Tim Ogilvie, co-founder, and CEO of Staked. “During the testnets, there was a pattern of the same issues - sometimes the software doesn’t communicate perfectly or has issues where the network needs to be restarted. Eth. 2.0’s main goal is to do much more.
Both Hauner and Ogilvie agree that users need to understand one important feature of the Eth 2.0 network before staking their ETH. According to Ogilvie, the first thing to know is that once ETH is transferred to the Eth 2.0 network, a transfer back to the original Ethereum blockchain will be impossible.
The funds are not liquid. Want it or not, unwillingly, the only thing you can do is participate in staking. But, before you start the process, you must accept the fact.
Aren't you eager to see the testnet's results?
