Attestations are how validators vote in eth2 in order to reach consensus on the state of the network.
On eth2, the primary source of load on the Beacon Chain will be "attestations." Attestations in Phase 0 are consensus votes that include information about: (i) the target slot, (ii) the last justified checkpoint–the “source” checkpoint, and (iii) the next proposed justified checkpoint–the “target” checkpoint. Every active validator must attest once in every epoch.
