Ethereum Blockchain - Berlin Upgrade (initial proposal)

Follow Berlin upgrade here  planned in June-July 2020

(April 13, 2020)

(This post is no longer valid for Ethereum's upgrade Berlin)

Meta EIP-2070  for Berlin was created on May 20, 2019, in order to collect EIPs which could not make it to Istanbul and were being considered for the subsequent upgrade Istanbul II aka Berlin. A lot changed in the past one year, priorities changed, different improvment protocol is introduced. So, now Ethereum's next upgrade is being planned with a new set of EIPs and EIPs listed 👇 may not be going in 'Berlin'.

(Nov 01, 2019)

Following Istanbul, Berlin is scheduled as next planned upgrade in Ethereum blockchain in 2020.

Highlights from All Core Dev Meeting #74

  • Berlin EIP Deadline — 3rd Wednesday of March
  • EIP centric model will be followed for Berlin
  • Wei Tang, the author of EIP-1702 (account versioning), will not be able to champion so a champion is needed. Decision to be in or out of Berlin upgrade will be taken in next ACD.
