Ethereum situation. Now the developers of the network are preparing to change the transaction confirmation algorithm from Proof-of-Work (PoW) to Proof-of-Stake (PoS). The release of the upgrade is scheduled for September 19-25. The final date will depend on the results of the Goerli testnet merge, which will take place on August 11.

Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin said that by the end of the roadmap for the network’s transition would see its scalability increase from 25 to 100 000 transactions per second (TPS). He also added that the upgrade would involve sharding and the Rollups scaling solution. According to Buterin, Ethereum issuance will be steadily decreasing after the transition to PoS.
