This token might bridge the gap between miners of Ethereum and users of Ethereum

The project Ethereum Eagle believes that its token EGL can harmonize two important stakeholder groups. For months Ethereum has been affected by high gas charges, so much so that financing and use of layer 2 solutions such as polygon, arbitrary and optimism has increased. Another project aims at improving communications among two sets of stakeholders of Ethereum whose motivations are sometimes misaligned: miners and users.

The Ethereum Eagle (EGL) project launched on Friday is aimed at providing a signaling mechanism to ensure the 'right-wing' balance of gas limitations and block sizes between miners and communities.

"This is because we see individuals complain about the gas limit every 6 months on Twitter," said Eleni Steinman, Head of Strategy and Operations for bloXroute. The project is being developed by BloXroute, a scalability blockchain firm that aims to deliver scaling without protocol modifications.

Miners in Ethereum are able to determine to some extent the block size. Miners can modify the block size of a following block by 0.1 percent, thus the basic basis for the gas limit is the majority of the hash power, even though there are tiny swings back and forward in the gas limit. However, in major moves, Ethereum miners can also modify the gas limit.

Bigger blocks provide lower gas charges but lower mineral earnings, while smaller blocks cause greater gas charges and are more profitable.

The dominance of the mining pools over the block size led to the decomposition of incentives between miners and users, bloXroute claims.

The project said in a blog post detailing the EGL project, adding: "Bottom gas limit (and higher gas fees) implies greater short-term revenue for miners and the adjustment of gas limit typically results in fewer earnings without clarification on the time demand compensates"

"A larger gas cap may make it necessary for Ethereum to run a node more than its typical PC, so normal users do not have their own node. It is an issue of incentives and 'prices,' and a solution requires Ethereum to maintain its growth in a secure manner."

The decentralized financing boom (DeFi) has helped to raise gas charges that make Ethereum transactions prohibitively expensive for numerous users without mentioning non-fungible currency.
What does EGL do?

EGL comprises three components, Steinman explained. First, everyone may participate to EGL using Ethereum through ETH stake. The staked ETH is utilized to give the EGL tokens a value, with the more the ETH the value of EGL. A hard cap of four billion EGL is available.

According to Steinman, for example, if the equivalent is 10,000 ETH and 750 million EGL, 1 ETH = 75,000 EGL. When staked 20,000 ETH, 1 ETH is 37,500 EGL, which implies that the value is greater.

EGL is a vital part of the jigsaw with a value from the beginning, since the token is utilized to stimulate activity by miners from Ethereum.

"For this we don't raise money. It's just for the Community of Ethereum," Steinman stated.

The second component is that the EGL holders vote on what they believe to be the correct gas threshold every week. A weighted average of the votes and figures is approved, and miners in EGL receive a reward for their blocks which fit the gas limit.

"This enables the community to cooperate with each other on what they think the correct response to the gas restriction is," Steinman added. "If you want to encourage people to vote on Twitter you need to make good research so people put their money where their mouth is. However, you now have a mechanism to persuade miners to follow the wishes of the community as we pay them with the EGL token."



The third aspect is that there's just one carrot without a club, according to the CEO Uri Klarman and co-founder of bloXroute. Miners will not be punished if they opt out of the gas restriction; they will be recompensed just for doing so.

This is an incentive not existing before, Klarman added. "As the closer the gas limit they follow, the more EGLs they obtain." "
Careful hack?

But how are the major entities that play an important role in the Etherum ecosystem to draw attention and participation?

To this purpose, a minimum threshold of the staked EGL is defined in the project Eagle, which must be fulfilled in the case of a weekly vote. If this threshold is missing, the desired gas threshold is not static, but moves to 5% below that of the "wanted" gas threshold.

The concept is that if people do not vote again, the gas limit progressively goes beyond what the voters think they want and ends up where it began, with low gas limitations and hefty costs.

"Miners are encouraged to desire to earn free EGLs by launching EGLs with clear genesis value," Steinman added. "The owners will want to vote for this since the minerals are encouraged to listen and will impact the gas limit." "

According to Compass Mining Editorial Manager Will Foxley, a model such as this will definitely face problems.

"The social layer is the most difficult component of any crypto-project, and historically the connection between Ethereum miners and devs has been one of the ecosystem's most controversial," he added. "The way block sizes in Ethereum are recognized by most developers is a net negative for space, but changing them is still challenging."



Foxley is sceptical about the fact that a token can solve a technical problem in the foundation layer of Ethereum. He claimed mining pools with token ballots or developers from Ethereum use the token are difficult to observe.
Eth 2 issues

Ethereum 2.0 is in the horizon and Eagle argues this may continue as long as Ethereum miners cease to be a thing. Ethereum 2.0 is at the horizon.

Eagle's blog post states that worries about the gas limits will go from miners to validators using a proof of stake approach. This would transform the 'genuine' or 'real' gas limit into a more decentralized validator operator from the centralized mining pool to the requirement just for a tool, like EGL.
