Ethereum upgrade to PoS is closer than ever

Charlie Taylor

THE Ethereum update from PoW to PoS (The Merge) is approaching to become a reality with the launch of the final testnet this Thursday (10/03/22). DApss, NFTs and other contracts running on blockchain of Ethereum will behave without proof-of-work validation.

Ethereum update on testnet

On the afternoon of this Thursday, March 10, 2022, the Ethereum Foundation released what should be the final testnet before The Merge update is applied to the Ethereum mainnet. The foundation has made a guide available so that other participants can join the tests. the project as after a lot of development, bug fixing, discussions and simulations around the ethereum update called The Merge (The Fusion), everyone involved in the ecosystem will be able to see how the network will behave during what should be three months of testing.ethereum visual update testnettestnet of the ethereum updateMarius van der Wijden, a developer at the foundation invited nodes, developers and creators to join the testnet, which is still working with proof of work, ahead of the change in the middle of next weekto test how each system will react to the transition:

“The network is still in Proof of Work (PoW) at the moment the merger will probably take place in the middle of next week. So join while the network is still in PoW and check if your nodes/software/defi-protocol/NFTs survive the transition!”

Mainnet launch

The roadmap of a software development can be very unpredictable, because unexpected bugs can always be found or new ideas arise that need to be implemented. When we talk about a live network, as robust and active as the Ethereum mainnetthe complexity gets even higher, as it involves different systems, protocols, interdependent software, nodes and a big trillion market behind. That’s why, even making predictions, dates can be changed in the blink of an eye and everything must be done very carefully, tested, corrected and retested until apgood functioning probability is satisfactory.And of course, even if everything goes well on the testnet, it is possible to expect a different behavior when iimplemented on the main network. It’s one thing to have a controlled test environment and another to be the vast computing jungle out there. Anyway, official Ethereum update is scheduled for the second half of 2022.This should make ETH investors very happy because the cost to manage the network, which they pay, will be reduced – in theory – by about 14,000 ETH per dayor $36 million, for just 1,387 ETH per dayor US$ 3.6 million.cost chart to keep the network running, paid for by investorsAnother benefit that the update will bring is to reduce inflation by approximately 4% in ether (ETH) currently to around 0.4%causing the currency to become effectively deflationary due to a part of the transaction fees being burned. become an eco-friendly global financial network with fixed monetary parameters.Read more:NovaDAX is full of news!

Terra (LUNA) aims for the top position in value bet after overtaking Ethereum

The native currency of the Terra ecosystem, LUNA, ranks second in value staked with approximately $31.42 billion. Leading the list is Solana with approximately $31.55 billion according to data provided by Staking Rewrds. Ethereum has dropped to the third position after occupying the first position for a long time. The […]
