Important update for Ethereum on September 19th!
Earlier, the same account assumed that Ethereum would switch to the new update at the end of September. Considering the decentralized nature of updates on the network, the update was somewhat delayed. It included a major disclaimer that it could be delivered faster than expected. In the releases list, users expect the Goerli/Prater clients to arrive on July 27 and 28. Goerli expects the Merge update on the testnet to end the PoW on August 11 and the Bellatrix update in early September. Thus, they expect Ethereum to be ready for Merge on September 19.
What is Ethereum Merge? Merge is one of the most anticipated and important updates in Ethereum history. Because it will change the development process of the network. It will make a full transition to proof-of-stake, leaving behind the old proof-of-work (PoW) algorithm. The upgrade represents the connection of the existing execution layer of the Blockchain with the new consensus layer, the Beacon Chain. The updated version of Ethereum will eliminate energy-intensive mining and secure the network using staked ETH.
In addition to making Ethereum environmentally friendly, the update is designed to increase the security, scalability and sustainability of the network. Because the 2021 bull run has proven that ETH is not yet ready for mass adoption as it becomes unusable during periods of high load. Therefore, we have witnessed the emergence of layer-2 networks that allow users to use the network at lower fees.
