Ethereum is a smart contract platform that enables developers to build tokens and decentralized applications (dapps). ETH is the native currency for the Ethereum platform and also works as the transaction fees to miners on the Ethereum network. Ethereum is the pioneer for blockchain based smart contracts.
Good news for Ethereum miners, as PoW still has a few more months to go. Developer Tim Beiko shared a tentative timeline.
‘The Merge‘, the long-awaited update of Ethereum a decentralized open-source blockchain with smart contracts functionality. which will change change — a concept relevant to cryptocurrencies that use the UTXO model — is the number of coins sent back to a user after they use their unspent outputs to initiate a transaction. its consensus consensus is achieved when all participants of the network agree on the order and content of the blocks in the blockchain. mechanism to one of participatory testing (PoS), has been delayed until the third quarter of the year.
The lead developer of Ethereum Tim Beiko, confirmed in a tweet on Tuesday that the update, which was expected to happen in June this year, will arrive later than anticipated. While there is no clear release schedule yet, Beiko said that the PoS merger is in its final stages and will most likely take place shortly after June.
It won’t be June, but probably in the months after that. No firm date yet, but we are definitely in the final chapter of PoW on Ethereum.

During the last few years, Ethereum has been working on a multi-stage upgrade to abandon its current proof-of-work poW is a type of consensus algorithm that rewards validators according to the amount of computational power they have expended. (PoW) consensus mechanism in favor of adopting PoS. Formerly called “ Ethereum 2.0 “This long-term change has been touted as the most important of the project to date.
One expectation is that the transition, a stage called the‘The Merge(Fusion), allay concerns about energy consumption. Under the new model, transactions will be validated by nodes run by “ participants “, o stakers instead of “ miners contributors to a blockchain taking part in the process of mining. They can be professional miners or organizations with large-scale operations, or hobbyists who set up mining rigs at home or in the office. “This is expected to reduce the energy required to process transactions and issue new coins by 99%.
El asunto sobre el gasto energético y el impacto medioambiental de las criptomonedas basadas en PoW ha sido un elemento de central de discusión en los últimos tiempos; especialmente para Bitcoin the biggest and most popular cryptocurrency in the world. It is a decentralized digital currency that enables users to make trustless peer-to-peer transactions. which has been the focus of criticism.
Expectations for the transition from Ethereum
The march of Ethereum towards PoS has not been quick, and the developers have more than two years working on the change. Previously, in March, the CEO of ConsenSys consenSys is a blockchain technology company that offers developer tools alongside enterprise solutions. y co-founder of
“ The Merge will put an end to proof of work, will put an end to Ethereum’s carbon or energy footprint problem, all of that will go away. “Lubin had commented at an event last year.
The latest delay in these plans means that ETH mining a process where blocks are added to a blockchain, verifying transactions. It is also the process through which new bitcoin or some altcoins are created. activity still has a little more time before it becomes completely obsolete, a topic that Beiko recently mentioned on her Twitter, when she recommended “ strongly “no longer invest investing is when you put money in a financial scheme with the intent of making a gain. in mining equipment at this point.
La noticia sobre el cronograma para la actualización de Ethereum comes just days after a milestone for the network a network refers to all nodes in the operation of a blockchain at any given moment in time. on its route to PoS. As reported by DiarioBitcoin the mainnet an independent blockchain running its own network with its own technology and protocol. (main network) of Ethereum activated its first fork in the shade ( shadow-fork) on Monday, allowing PoS mechanisms to be stress-tested for the first time on the PoS mainnet. Ethereum .
In the meantime, expectations for the update seem to be rising. At the beginning of the month, searches for “Ethereum Merge” at Google reached an all-time high, according to data from Google Trends . The amount of ETH deposited as collateral collateral is any asset that a lender accepts as a form of security to ensure that the borrower repays a loan. in the PoS smart contract in traditional finance, a contract is a binding agreement between two parties. In cryptocurrencies, smart contracts execute functions on the blockchain. has also increased at a rapid pace, recently surpassing 11 million ETH .
It is worth noting that Ethereum is currently the backbone of hundreds of projects blockchain a distributed ledger system. A sequence of blocks, or units of digital information, stored consecutively in a public database. The basis for cryptocurrencies. : tokens decentralized decentralization refers to the property of a system in which nodes or actors work in concert in a distributed fashion to achieve a common goal. finance (DeFi), metaverses, tokens non fungibles (NFT), gaming and more. Meanwhile, its native cryptocurrency, ETH, is the second largest by market an area or arena, online or offline, in which commercial dealings are conducted. capitalization ($373 billion). As of press time, its price is around $3,100.
