For what reason did this occur?
As 24.4% of ETH hubs were not “Consolidation prepared” preceding the Bellatrix update, one Twitter client inquired as to whether this might have credited to the issue to which he answered that it “could be an explanation”.

In any case, yesterday (6 September) 26.5% of Ethereum hubs were not prepared for The Consolidation, so it has seen a lessening in number.

The Union really intends that after various deferrals, Ethereum will begin to run on a proof-of-stake (PoS) rather than a proof-of-work (PoW) agreement model.
