Ethereum 2.0 Blockchain Explorer - Beacon Chain (Phase 0)

The Ethereum’s many scalability and congestion issues have led its developers to propose an upgraded Ethereum protocol, known as ETH 2.0 or Ethereum 2.0. This is the most recent attempt to make the protocol more favourable to retail investors, usable for professionals and corporates, and ease the bottlenecks plaguing the network.

The beacon chain, also known as Phase 0, represents Ethereum’s move from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake consensus, and its Ethereum explorer has shown how efficient and transparent the entire process is.

The initial concern was that the network would not reach the required 16,384 validators to launch the beacon chain, however, the phase saw over 20,000 validators stake their 32ETH minimum price.

What Is Ethereum 2.0?

The ETH 2.0 has been on many crypto news in the past year. It has been touted as the all-encompassing solution to Ethereum’s scalability and complex DApps problem. Huge transaction fees, slow transaction confirmation time, and dapps that most newbies can not easily navigate are some issues that this new Ethereum upgrade will address.

The beacon chain signalled the start to the proof-of-stake. And since then, there has been the London fork, the Altair upgrade, and the EIP-1559, amongst others, all in a bid to improve the efficiency of the new Ethereum Chain.

The new Ethereum chain allows for staking, and the Ethereum explorer displays the number of validators, amount staked, and other information on Ethereum 2.0 staking. On the new Ether chain, there are about 280,000 validators and 8.9 million ETH staked.

The ETH 2.0 is believed to work towards 100,000 transactions per second via sharding techniques. If ETH 2.0 can achieve that number of transaction, Ethereum will be the perfect protocol for DApps, DeFi, NFTs, and most recently, the Metaverse and Web 3.0. The price of Ethereum is also poised to respond positively to the launch of the ETH 2.0, when it does in Q4 2022.
