The long-awaited Ethereum Merge is scheduled to go live in mid or late September after another series of test launches
Ethereum Merge to go live in September
The same user had previously predicted that Ethereum would adopt the new update by the end of September. Given the decentralized nature of network upgrades, it contained a crucial caveat that the update might arrive faster than anticipated or with a short delay.
Users anticipate the release of the Goerli/Prater clients on July 27 and 28, the Merge upgrade on the Goerli testnet on August 11, and the Bellatrix update in early September, which will turn off the PoW and prepare Ethereum for the Merge implementation on September 19.
One of the most anticipated and significant improvements in Ethereum history is The Merge, which will completely switch the network over to proof of stake and do away with the antiquated proof-of-work method.
The upgrade signifies the joining of the blockchain’s current execution layer and its new Beacon Chain consensus layer. Through the use of staked ETH, the new version of Ethereum will do away with energy-intensive mining and safeguard the network.
The update to Ethereum is intended to reduce its environmental impact while also enhancing security, scalability, and sustainability. The 2021 Bullrun demonstrated that ETH is not yet ready for widespread adoption because it becomes unusable during times of excessive load. Because of this, Layer 2 networks, which allowed users to access the network for less money, have flourished.
