Ethereum Is Only as Strong as Its Weakest Link — CoinDesk

Any large client bug can create quite the headache for Ethereum stakeholders, but the bug is amplified if a large portion of the nodes are all experiencing the same issue, potentially tricking the chain into believing their bugged chain is correct.
