The Ethereum 2.0 Medalla testnet is witnessing a significant increase in participation from validators. Over the course of the past month, the number of active validators on the testnet has reached above 62,000. This is a rise of 63% within the duration of just one month.
As the number of active validators is continuously increasing, the total number of staked test ETH has also risen up to a new high. Reportedly, there are now almost two million test ETH that have been staked on the Ethereum 2.0 Medalla testnet by validators. This number has come very near to cross the two million figure.
The above chart shows that network participation during the last 24 hours is standing in the range between 72% and 80%.
Moreover, a little over 1.5 million ETH tokens so far now have voted in the favor of validating the Medalla testnent. While on the other hand, these newly-staked two million test ETH tokens have also become eligible for voting.
