Ethereum Hard Fork: Only 80% Of Clients Ready for Muir Glacier Upgrade

Ethereum Hard Fork: Only 80% Of Clients Ready for Muir Glacier Upgrade

The Ethereum community has grown impatient with core developers recently as the delay has been viewed as wider procrastination for ETH 2.0. A discussion on Muir Glacier highlighted some of the discontents the community has with those that make the big decisions. “This EIP was accepted as final AFTER the Ethereum Foundation endorsed the Muir Glacier hard fork on its blog. The ordering of these two events indicates that EF does not recognize the community input process when it unilaterally implements major breaking changes.” It had also been suggested that this upgrade would not be the last on ETH 1.0 but was deemed necessary to prevent network performance deterioration. The next upgrade is likely to be Berlin and it already has a list of eligible EIPs. ETH 2.0 is a completely separate network that is still around two years away in its entirety. Initial phases will start getting rolled out later this year with Beacon Chain being the first. Ethereum prices are still rock bottom and are likely to remain there until some solid progress on Serenity can be seen. How will Ethereum perform after the upgrade today? Add your comments below.
