- Expected Ethereum’s London upgrade contains EIP-1559.
- Ethereum platform expects a date for mainnet deployment to firm up.
- Over 5% of ETH’s supply, currently locked in staking.
The expected Ethereum’s London upgrade contains the highly-anticipated Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP) 1559, this was posted in Ropsten testnet.
Moreover, the Ropsten testnet allows blockchain development to test their work in a live setting. But without the necessity for real ETH and mainnet 2KEY tokens.
According to the launch on Ropsten on Thursday, London looks forwards to progress through Ethereum’s Goerli, Rinkeby, and Kovan testnets around weekly intervals. So Ethereum platform expects a date for mainnet deployment to firm up.
Henceforth, the forthcoming new Ethereum London upgrade will see gas fees burned. According to the Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP) 1559 tracking website Watch the Burn. Nearly 88,500 testnet Ether (ETH), approximately worth over $177 million, has burned on Ropsten over the day since London’s deployment.
The discussion regarding whether EIP-1559 will render Ethereum deflationary relighted by the high rate of Ether that has burned on Ropsten. According to the discussion more, Ethereum (ETH), destroyed than new supply enters into circulation.
More so, Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP) 1559 is not the only upgrade that the Ethereum community is looking forward to from London. David Mihal tweeted “One of the most overlooked security issues in Ethereum is ERC20 approvals. I’ve given up on my push for ERC777 to fix this. And our next chance to fix this is EIP-3074”
Hence more, maybe a coincidence or not, the crypto data aggregator CryptoQuant founded that 100,000 Ether had deposited into Eth2’s staking contract. In the same time as the launch, that worth nearly $200 million.
Over 5% of ETH’s supply, currently locked in staking, noted by CryptoQuant that worth nearly $11.5 billion.
