Ethereum devs will discuss whether to focus on going full Proof of Stake (PoS) after the fee market hardfork goes through this summer.
“The Merge is the main thing that the Ethereum community expects, and working on other initiatives (i.e. another “feature fork”) takes the limited focus that core developers have away from the merge,” Mikhail Kalinin, an ethereum developer said in a proposal.
That’s after Vitalik Buterin, the ethereum co-founder, came up with a method to speed up the merger to full Proof of Stake.
In a meeting of developers to be held on April the second, they will now discuss whether “Shanghai in October (no merge) or Shanghai delayed with focus on merge.”
