According to information from trustnodes, the Ethereum 2.0 testnet crashed on Friday and as a result there are four or five major forks on the network.
Friday’s time related bug on the network was supposed to overthrow the Prysm client, which is used by most validators, and unexpected changes occurred as a result. This error primarily caused the interruption of Prysm nodes and the entire network, subsequently appeared four or five major forks.

We need to get all the clients to agree on the current head. It’s also causing sync havoc with peers joining claiming different views of the chain. There are range of edge cases and fixes we will be deploying thorughout the week to address all these,
