Merge Ready: Ethereum Completes Last Shadow Fork Before the Transition

Days before the estimated date of Ethereum’s transition to Proof-of-Stake (PoS), the protocol went through the last shadow fork.

  • Ethereum research and engineering company, Nethermind, took it to Twitter to reveal that the network went through the last shadow fork before The Merge.

Transition in Mainnet-Shadowfork-13 (the last shadowfork before The Merge) was successful for all Nethermind nodes!

  • Representing the result of multiple years of research and development, The Merge is a highly-complex process. Shadow forks are designed to help developers test synchronization assumptions in a bid to check network safety during upgrades that are irreversible.
  • Meanwhile, 84% of Ethereum’s nodes are marked as “Merge Ready,” according to data from EtherNodes.
  • Current estimates based on the hashrate put the date of the event on September 15th.
