According to the latest Ethereum Consensus Layer call, the developers of Ethereum will make Ethereum’s next big move towards Shanghai’s Beacon Chain withdrawals. This move marks the first time that the developer team will provide a window for certain withdrawals. Although The Merge feature has already been released, the implementation of its sequel, The Surge, will be delayed.
According to the decision made during the talks on December 1, Ethereum’s developer team will prioritize making it easier for people to withdraw their ETH with the help of the Shanghai raise of Ethereum shares. As a result, EIP-4844 will enable proto-danksharding in a separate update, but this activation will happen after the Shanghai update.
Ethereum’s chain merger has been awaited for a long time. In November, Ethereum could finally merge the Proof of Stake layer with the main execution layer of the network. Thanks to this upgrade, Ethereum could switch to Proof of Stake.
Although Ethereum successfully upgraded to Proof of Stake, Ethereum’s developers were criticized for failing to get people who staked Ethereum to withdraw their ETH.
At the meeting on December 1, a statement was made that EIP-4844 (Stakeed ETH) withdrawals still needed to be prepared, and more time was needed to consolidate them.
