Ethereum Merge

The Merge was executed successfully on September 15, 2022.

Ethereum Merge is an upgrade that merges the mainnet with the Beacon Chain proof-of-stake system. This marks the end of Ethereum’s Proof of Work (PoW), and a full transition to Proof of Stake (PoS).

We highly recommend reading the official blog post, What you need to know to prepare for the Ethereum merger: How The Merge Impacts Ethereum’s Application Layer.

The purpose of the merger is to have minimal impact on the operation of Ethereum's end users, smart contracts, and DApps.

Prepare for The Merge

The Rinkeby, Kovan, and Ropsten testnets are deprecated. We recommend developers migrate dapps to the Goerli testnet.
