Ethereum developers announce date for Goerli testnet merger

- Advertisement -


Early next month will see the Ethereum test network Goerli undergo a beacon chain merger, bringing support for proof-of-stake ahead of a mainnet merger expected this fall. 

The details were included in a July 27 blog post. 

The blog post explained:

“For the last testnet proof-of-stake transition, Goerli will merge with Prater. The combined Goerli/Prater network will retain the Goerli name post-merge. Bellatrix, the Prater upgrade readying it for The Merge will happen at epoch 112260, expected at 12:24PM UTC on August 4, 2022. After Bellatrix is activated, the Goerli/Prater merge will happen when Goerli hits a total difficulty of 10790000, expected between August 6-12, 2022.”

“Post-merge, Goerli’s validator set will remain open for individual stakers to run testnets validators. Stakers who wish to start a Goerli/Prater validator can do so at the Prater Launchpad,” the post went on to explain. 

As previously reported, mergers of this kind serve as dress rehearsals for the eventual mainnet merger. Thus far, the Ropsten and Seploia networks have been merged with their respective beacon chains.
