Atrium "Marj" was updated on the Rapsten experimental network

 A few hours ago, Marj was finally updated (merged) into the Atrium Ropsten experimental network, and a PoS proof consensus was reached.


The Rapsten Atrium Experimental Network has finally successfully merged its POW لایه layer with China-based bacon; The same process that Atrium's core network, if all goes well, will experience in a few months.

Rapstein Network does not currently have a miner and works with Voliditor. If we look at the ethereal scan of the Rapsten test network, we will see that the word miner has been replaced with the recipient of the fee (Fee Recipient).

Vitalik Butrin said on YouTube today that the Marj process, which works for hours, is not a testament to its complete success. There are all sorts of longer-term problems, such as centralized sticking and DOS attacks, that may not occur on the spot and we will see them in a few weeks.

It is worth noting that the team of Biko, one of the developers of Atrium Core, announced on Twitter that a number of block offers have been lost.

Chaos is an important turning point for Atrium moving towards a stock-proof consensus. Currently, the Atrium network operates with a proof-of-work consensus, whereby miners spend energy discovering new blocks and adding them to the blockchain, in exchange for newly extracted ethers and a portion of transaction and reward fees. When the proof-of-consensus mechanism changes to stock-proofing, validators who have stuck at least 32 ethers in the network will be responsible for adding new blocks to the Atrium blockchain. 

Atrium Bacon China currently runs parallel to the current proof-of-network network. Bacon China is a stock-based network that now has validators who validate new blocks at the same time as Atrium's core proof-of-business network. Once the stock proof chain is sufficiently tested and secured, the two chains will be merged, and finally, the Atrium core network will continue to operate with the PoS consensus algorithm.

Because the merging process as a whole is complex and requires fundamental changes to the atrium code, it must be tested in different experimental networks. Marge in the Rapstein network is the first test of its kind, and the results will help in the next steps for the final integration in the main network.

The test is expected to take place in the Goerli and Seoplia test networks in the coming months.
