The Ethereum 2.0 Teku client releases the necessary v22.8.1 update to all users of the main network in order to prepare for the merger. The update contains the Bellatrix update and the Merge transition configuration. All Ethereum Mainnet users must update by September 6, the date of Bellatrix’s activation on Mainnet.
Ethereum Teku Client Releases Update for Bellatrix and Merge Transition
Ethereum 2.0 Teku’s client tweete On August 22, he announced the release of v22.8.1, a mandatory update that installs the Bellatrix update on September 6 and merger readiness on September 15.
To switch to Proof-of-Stake (PoS), all nodes of the core network must be upgraded to the required version of Teku. It includes connecting to the API of the local execution client mechanism and setting the default commission by the validators of the recipient.
Hosts on the core network must update both teku and the executing client to prepare for the merge. If the executable clients fail to update, Teku will report a “Merge Transition Configuration Error.” The overall complexity of the local terminal (TTD) and the mismatch of the hash of the terminal block with the values of the remote execution client will invalidate the transition on the host of the main network.
In addition, additions and enhancements to the update include setting up the Bellatrix fork era and TTD for merging, allowing you to configure multiple beacon nodes for a single validator client and making it easier to use the standard REST API.
In addition, it includes bug fixes related to the PoW terminal block, debugs the calculated payload, and repeated timeout exceptions.
All users of the core network must upgrade to version 22.8.1 before the Bellatrix activation date of September 6. The update includes important tweaks to prepare for the merge.
Ethereum developers expect September 15 as the final date
Ethereum core developers confirmed the final TTD of the main network 58750000000000000000000000000 during the last meeting of Ethereum core developers on August 18. This means that developers with Optimism are looking at the merger, which will be launched on September 15.
Formerly by Vitalik Buterin also confirmed that the merge depends on the hash rate. An average hashrate of 872.2 TH/s is enough to achieve a TTD of 5875000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 According to OKLink data, “Ethereum The Merge Countdown” , the current hashrate is 872 TH/s.
