POST /eth/v1/validator/liveness/{epoch}

Indicates if a validator has been observed on the network.

Asks the beacon node to report whether any validators have been seen to be active during a specific epoch. The validator's messages on the network, in the beacon chain, via its API, or from any other source could be the beacon node's way of determining when it is live. A beacon node MAY support an older epoch, but it MUST support the present and previous epochs. It is crucial to remember that the values the beacon node returns are best-effort and predicated on an arbitrary interpretation of the network, not canonical. A validator may appear to be down while it is actually online, as indicated by a beacon node that was recently restarted or experienced a network split.
