Ethereum Gets Close To Merge With Bellatrix Upgrade Happening Today!
Prior to the final merge, the Bellatrix update for ETH is scheduled today, when the Ethereum Epoch value is anticipated to rise to 144,896 on the proof-of-stake chain.
In this upgrade, the Beacon Chain is joined with the Ethereum mainnet, and the consensus algorithm is completely changed from PoW to PoS.
According to data from Ethernodes, 73.5% of Ethereum nodes are now marked as “Merge ready” for the Bellatrix upgrade.
The last part of the Ethereum Merge is called the “Paris event,” which will be triggered when the Terminal Total Difficulty (TTD) reaches 58750000000000000000000, which is estimated to occur around Sept 15.
