Ethereum Ecosystem Upgrade, better known as Ethereum Shapella Upgrade, it was activated on April 12 of this year. The main feature is to enable withdrawal Ethereum tokens from the “staking” service, in such a way that the withdrawal service is unlocked. It is interesting to see the data from the blockchain, where it was established as in the first ten days of upgrade activation raised 1.37 million Ethereum tokens.
Withdrawals from Ethereum's Shapella upgrade staking contract have begun this week. 1.37M ETH has already been withdrawn and 650k ETH deposited, resulting in net withdrawals of 720k ETH. #Ethereum— IntoTheBlock (@intotheblock) April 22, 2023
However, this upgrade did not bring a unilateral effect. Namely, in the specified time certain amounts of deposited Ethereum tokens were recorded during the period. It is a figure of 650,000 Ethereum. All total observed net number of raised Ethereum tokens amounts to 720,000 ETH in these ten days.
After the successfully activated “Shapella” upgrade Ethereum developers are preparing for upcoming major upgrade “ACDC call”. Ethereum programmers and developers they also plan to conduct tests next week.
The new ACDC call was about planning for the next major upgrade. Ethereum Devs are planning on launching their 5th devnet to test eip 4844 next week and eip 4788 and 3175 look like strong candidates to include in the deneb upgrade.
