The merge on the mainnet is more prominent this season than ever. It is no news that the merge is a project that will allow the Ethereum users to transit from the power-consuming Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake.
During a recent call with a core developers like Terence Tsao (co-founder of Prysmatic Labs, and Tim Beiko agreed that The Merge can take place when the Total Terminal Difficulty (TTD) hits 58750000000000000000000.
Figuring out the exact date range when the upgrade will occur will require complex calculations, and will be a moving target, depending on changes to the network’s use and support, developers said on the call broadcast over YouTube on Thursday.
Merge Date Revealed
The final date range is expected to be approved during another developer call next week, though the software engineers are currently looking at Sept. 15 to Sept. 20.
According to the tweet by one of the core developers, Tsao:
Tim Beiko has once released the timeline for the merge. Interestingly, on the 11th of August 2022, the merge was successfully run on the Georli which represents the final testnet before the major launch. This takes the project closer to the long-anticipated mainnet upgrade, which might happen a bit earlier than expected.
Although, they reported some issues that were not a result of the coding but the late update caused by the people there.
As previously reported by Cryptolifedigital, once there is no issue with the launching of the merge on the Georli, then the merge will be almost prepared to be on the mainnet.
