In the Ethereum 2.0 network, one of the validators lost part of the share for distorting the block. Lead developer Justin Drake announced this.
The validator was fined 0.25 ETH on slot 6669. At the time of writing, its balance is below 32 ETH, so it can’t participate in the block issue.
Over the past day, the participation rate of validators is 96.99%.”
Drake recalled that at the first stage of the launch of Ethereum 2.0, it was decided to ease the sanctions for isolated incidents. Over time, the amount of the fine will return to 1 ETH.
A validator got slashed for a block equivocation, losing ~0.25 ETH. Do not try to run fancy validator redundancy that could bypass the slashing protections.https://t.co/gmhofdy7E4
