On Tuesday, the Bellatrix upgrade prepping Ethereum for the Merge was successfully finished. An almost one in ten missed block rate during the last 600 slots raised questions.

Before the impending Merge, it was slated for sometime next week, the Bellatrix upgrade on the Beacon Chain updated Ethereum consensus layer clients at epoch 144896.

Martin Köppelmann, a co-founder of Gnosis, claims that 5% of the validators went offline during the hard fork, which increased the 9% missed block rate. Due to this, some observers questioned whether the network was ready to make the significant leap to proof-of-stake (PoS).

The 9% statistic, according to Köppelmann, was 1700% greater than the 0.5% historical lost block rate. The 25.6% of clients listed by Ethernodes as “not ready” for The Merge may be connected to the problem.

Adam Cochran, a partner at Cinneamhain Ventures, expressed his optimism that the “huge surge” in lost blocks will be fixed before the Merge, saying, “We don’t want to be seeing unanticipated concerns at this late point.”

But, not everyone is concerned. Only 5% of validators leaving the network was, in fact, “an excellent result,” according to Daily Gwei founder Anthony Sassano, who firmly said that “there’s not much that can go catastrophically wrong.” Using the Merge:

“I would suggest that the ‘worst case scenario would be if the chain just halted because the switchover from PoW to PoS did not work at all — this would then require some type of coordinated human intervention to repair,” said the author.

The developer said, “However if we observe things like validators dropping off the network due to configuration difficulties, missed blocks/slots, or some clients having serious bugs, these things wouldn’t be the reason for major concern as they are pretty easy to recover from.

One of the final phases before the Merge is the Bellatrix upgrade, which enables Ethereum consensus layer clients to conduct transactions on the Beacon Chain.

The network will switch to a PoS consensus mechanism after the Ethereum Merge, which is expected to increase network efficiency and security.
