The start of the Ethereum medal test network is suffering from a block closure problem

August 4, 2020

The Ethereum test network, Medal, is scheduled to start at 1:00 p.m. UTC did not go as well as expected.

While the network started successfully and suggested a sufficient number of blocks in the assumed Genesis time, the participation rate was only 57%; much lower than the expected 80%.

This means that only 57% of the share is implemented to validate the network. This is a major problem because the block can only be completed when the network begins to reduce the validators that are offline. Completion means that the course of the block is set to stone, which corresponds to the threshold for the block commit in ETH 1.0.

According to the developers This may be due to the fact that many validators registered by depositing 32 ETH do not run the validation software.

However, Problems with Nimbus and Lodestar customers can make up about 10% of this engagement gap. said Danny Ryan of the Ethereum Foundation.

The network is expected to solve the problem itself. however, since inactive validators have been discarded, it may take at least a few hours for completion to be restored.

In the meantime, developers are investigating problems with customers.
