Developers Put Off Berlin Hard Fork on ETH Network
Main page News, Ethereum

The hard fork Berlin in the Ethereum network has been put off, Trustnodes has reported.

The developer Hudson Jameson said 2 weeks ago the individual elements of the update are coming together. He added:

"By mid-next week we will have final specifications and decisions on 3 EIPs that may be going in. We are creating the first ephemeral testnet called YOLO."

However, during a developers' conference call on May 29, it was known the developers had not managed to launch the testnet on the expected date (May 26) because several EIPs had not been included in the system. As a result, the launch of the testnet, which was supposed to take place next week, has also been put off.

The testnet was expected to go live six weeks after which the developers would proceed to release the update. Since even the preliminary version of the testnet has not yet been rolled out, the update will most likely be put off until early fall.

The Berlin update is necessary to release the Ethereum 2.0 phase zero. Therefore, the release date of the second version of Ethereum is not yet clear."
