All Ethereum Nodes should upgrade to recent client versions listed here before the Bellatrix fork. Bellatrix prepares the beacon chain for The Merge. Here is our complete guide on What do Bellatrix, Paris & TTD mean in Ethereum Merge Upgrade?.

Checkpointz: Beacon Chain Checkpoint Sync Provider

Checkpointz simplifies the process of running an Ethereum Beacon Chain checkpoint sync endpoint. Here are some of its features:

  • It reduces the operational burden of providing a full checkpoint sync endpoint.
  • Web UI for users to cross-reference against.
  • Light mode for home stakers.
  • Extensive Prometheus metrics.
  • DOS protection.

Here is the link to its official GitHub Repository.

⚠️ Checkpointz is still in heavy development. Use with caution. Using a beacon node attached to a validator is currently not recommended.
