Ethereum developers decide on Shanghai date at Goerli

The Ethereum developers have set the Shanghai upgrade date on the Goerli testnet as March 14 (epoch 162304).

“Goerli is the final testnet that will test ETH withdrawals before activating the code change on the mainnet,” said Galaxy researcher Kristina Kim.

If the testnet upgrade goes smoothly, market participants can expect a mainnet upgrade during the second week of April, she said.

Earlier, Ethereum developers successfully completed the Shanghai-Capella (Shapella) upgrade on the Sepolia testnet.

The main function of the upgrade is to open access to the withdrawal of funds from Ethereum staking, which implements EIP-4895. The hard fork includes changes to the consensus (Capella) and execution (Shanghai) levels.

Shortly thereafter, the developers implemented the smart accounts feature by activating the ERC-4337 standard through a smart contract called EntryPoint.
