Key Ethereum developers launched patch packs for Prysm Labs and Teku clients within 24 hours to address the final challenges of two Beacon Chains. Beacon chain is the consensus layer of the Ethereum network

On May 11th, Ethereum developers reported that Beacon Chain encountered difficulties in determining the transaction process. Although new blockchains can be proposed, an uncertain challenge limits their final decision. The power outage lasted for about 25 minutes. The same issue occurred on May 12th, blocking the final decision of the block for over an hour.

The Ethereum Charity Foundation stated in a statement shared by an Ethereum consultant on Twitter that there were three and eight periods when the final agreement could not be reached. This problem seems to be caused by the high load on some consensus layer clients, but it is also caused by a special situation on the contrary

Although the network cannot make a final decision, due to the diversity of clients, consumers and end users can buy and sell transactions online on the spot. "Not all clients are completely affected by such special circumstances

The diversity of clients is related to the total number of mobile software clients available for network validators. More diversity among customers represents a better and healthier network.

Teky and Prysm have released updates and completed improvements to avoid excessive network resource consumption at beacon connection points.

The same issue occurred on March 15th, delaying the successful deployment of Ethereum "Shapella" on April 12th to upgrade the Goerli network version number. The work unit certification chain previously existing in Ethereum was merged with the beacon chain on September 15, 2022, enabling the network to switch to the equity certification consensus algorithm, which quickly reduced energy consumption.

Recently, the hot topic of buying and selling memes has increased the Ethereum activity and chip reward rate. According to on chain data information, the validator earned $46 million in the first week of May, which is 24997 Ethereum, an increase of 40% from the previous week's $33 million in revenue. At that time, 18339 Ethereum was distributed in return.
