What is Ethereum Shanghai Upgrade?
Before the actual release, on October 14 this year, the Ethereum Foundation released a pre-Shanghai testnet for the same. This testnet, also known as ‘Shandong’ will be used to test and finalize the Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs) that are expected to be unveiled in the actual Shanghai Update.
As per a report by CoinDesk last week, the Ethereum developers had made a note the network’s next hard fork, which is being termed “Shanghai,” is being targeted to have a release time frame of March 2023. The next step in the Ethereum networks’ development will also comprise of the proposed code known as EIP 4895 which will allow the Beacon Chain staked ether (ETH) withdrawals for the stakers!
In addition to the inclusion of the Staked Ether proposal, the Ethereum developers will as well look into addressing the implementation of the “EVM Object Format” (EOF) in the Shanghai upgrade. The EOF is basically a collection of EIPs that will effectively upgrade the Ethereum Virtual Machine. This proposal us set to give the environment where Ethereum is able to execute smart contracts a little upgrade. The collective Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs) are EIP 3540, EIP 3670, EIP 4200, EIP 4570, and EIP 5450.
It is also in the discussion that if the implementation of the EIPs seems to be too complicated during the All Core Developers call planned for January 5, 2023, then it will be pushed further and the team will continue their focus on the Staked ETH withdrawals; so the task will not be delayed.
