Ethereum Gears Up for Further Developments Despite Volatility
• Ethereum developers proposed increasing the validator set to reduce the churn limit.
• The proposed solution by developers is to cap the churn limit at 12 validator entries and exits per epoch.
• Despite market fluctuations, Ethereum’s progress remained on track with over 672,507 validators on the network.
Ethereum Developers Propose Increasing Validator Set
Ethereum developers plan to make changes to the validator set with proposing a possible reduction of the validator churn limit. This would effectively slow down the growth rate of the validator set, providing more time to explore other ideas for managing validator set growth in the long term. At press time, there were 672,507 validators on the Ethereum network. According to Staking Rewards’ data, over the last month, this number has grown by 9.26%.
Options Market’s Reaction To Fluctuations
Despite ETH initially dropping below $1,875 but quickly rebounding during Asian trading hours to recover its value; surprisingly, options market did not show a significant reaction to these movements. Greeks.live pointed out that crypto markets are losing liquidity making it vulnerable to sudden spikes.
Implementation Of The Change
The proposed change is intended as a short-term measure while further solutions are developed for managing validator set size in future code changes and prevent strain on peer-to-peer networking layer .This would also be implemented in time for Dencun upgrade which is an essential part of Ethereum 2.0 roadmap aiming towards scalability and efficiency of its blockchain platform .
Market Volatility And Depleting Liquidity
The volatility due to various events in crypto sector is impacting Ethereum [ETH] despite its progress remaining on track with increasing number of validators on its protocol . This is causing depleting liquidity and making it difficult for buyers and sellers alike when trying to decide about their investments in crytpo markets .
