Crypto Industry News:

We've barely forgotten about Merge, and another Ethereum update is on the horizon. This time, developers want to focus on, among others on lowering gas charges. The new trial version is now available. The Pre-Shanghai test network was named Shandong. This means that developers can prepare for deployments.

The update is to take place in 2023. Most likely in the second half. This will be the first Ethereum cryptocurrency update since the transition from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake, Merge, which took place in September 2022.

There will be many changes, and depending on the sources, different priorities are indicated. The most common talk of a few updates:

EIP-4895 - is to enable users to pay out setH and won prizes via Beacon Chain.

EIP-4844 - to offload the main Ethereum network and process operations in layer 2 networks. This is expected to increase network capacity and potentially also contribute to reducing gas bills.

EIP-3540 - Separates encoding from data, which improves performance and allows easier changes to the Ethereum Virtual Machine.

All these changes are expected to positively affect the performance and bandwidth of Ethereum. In addition, at least some of them may also have a positive impact on the experience of ordinary users - you would certainly appreciate the reduction in gas fees.
