Hard fork Berlin on Ethereum core network postponed by developers
The planned update of the current Ethereum blockchain called “Berlin” is postponed, Trustnodes writes.
About two weeks ago, developer Hudson Jameson said that the individual elements of the update are coming together.
“By the middle of next week, final specifications will be ready and decisions will be made on three Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIP) that can be implemented. We are creating the first short-term testnet called “YOLO”, ”he said.
As it turned out during a conference call of the developers on May 29, they were not able to launch the testnet at the appointed time on May 26, since several EIPs were not included in the system. Because of this, the launch of the main test network, which was supposed to take place next week, is also postponed.
It was assumed that the test network will work for six weeks, after which the developers in July will be able to proceed to launch the update. Since the preliminary version of the testnet has not even been launched yet, the update will most likely be shifted to the beginning of autumn.
This fork is necessary to launch the zero phase of Ethereum 2.0, since it contains an update of signatures for a deposit contract in the existing blockchain. The launch dates for the updated Ethereum 2.0 test network remain open to question. According to the latest information, this is planned to be done in June.
