Ethereum is a fully Proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain network. In September of the last year, the Ethereum PoW chain merged with the PoS Beacon chain. To unlock the real working potential of the Ethereum blockchain, Ethereum developers are tirelessly working to bring several upgrades to the Ethereum blockchain network. 

On 12 May 2023, the Ethereum blockchain network faced a “Network Finality” issue and the reason behind the issue occurred is still unknown, while devs are investigating this incident to fix the main issue to avoid future similar kinds of incidents.

 Finality refers to the state in which transactions can’t be changed and here the issue was not necessarily linked with Finality, as the investigation is going on but the situation has been resolved & network working smoothly.

The team informed that almost all the pools/operators that it monitors, were offline for a couple of epochs.
