Almost 73% https://gagarin.news/ of Ethereum NODs signaled about the readiness for The Merge
72.6% of Ethereum NODs are ready to merge on the eve of the Bellatrix update planned for September 6, according to Ethernodes.
The upgrade is considered as the first phase of blockchain migration for the Proof-OF-Stake (POS) algorithm. Bellatrix will prepare for the merger of the “signaling network” Beacon Chain.
One of the main developers Tim Beiko called on NOD operators who did not update to the current version to do this before the update.
“If you use the Ethereum client, which is not updated to the last version, after upgrade it will synchronize with blockchain to the fork. You will stuck in an incompatible chain according to the old rules and you will not be able to send air or work on the network after a merger, ”said Ethereum Foundation.
The dominant share of the NED fusion is on the most popular Geth client. The version of the software for work after The Merge supports both levels of the “Execution” and “consensus” network.
Ethereum co -founder Vitalik Buterin also turned to the NOD operators:
“It is expected that the merger will occur approximately on September 13-15. Today will happen Bellatrix, which will prepare the chain for The Merge. However, it is important – be sure to update customers!””.
Activation of Bellatrix will allegedly occur at 14:34:47 (Kyiv/Moscow) on era 144 896. The next part of The Merge is called Paris.
A number of cryptocurrency platforms have announced the suspension of Ethereum support for a large -scale update (Antpool) or restrictions on some operations (Coinbase, Binance).
