Ethereum GOerli Network Sync stopped block number 7382822. And one warning come (Post-merge network, but no beacon client seen. Please launch one to follow the chain! )

how to start sync in goerli network

1 Answer 1


The Goerli network has now passed the Merge fork. In order to run a full node on Goerli, you need both an execution client like Geth and a consensus client like Prysm, Lighthouse, Nimbus, Teku or Lodestar.

That Merge was announced on the Ethereum foundation blog.

I wrote 2 guides to run a full node on Goerli. You can use either one of them to resync from scratch. If you only want to have access to the network and use a web3 endpoint to do transactions, you don't need to do the validator client part or do a deposit.

  • I got this message when synchronizing the main network. Is there a way to do this for that network as well or is it a different thing for which I should ask a new question?

  • Is this guide by geth.ethereum.org outdated? I' m getting " post-merge nw, but no beacon...looking 4 peers...dropping un-synced nodes..."
