    Preparing for the Ethereum Merge: Bellatrix Upgrade Announcement


    The Ethereum Merge to proof-of-stake ("PoS") is just around the corner.

    We have upgraded our Ethereum nodes to the latest Bellatrix upgrade in advance to ensure the smooth operations of our customers. You don’t need to do anything on your end and no issues or downtime are expected. 

    Bellatrix is a consensus layer upgrade that is set to occur when the Beacon Chain reaches an epoch height of 144,896, around 11:34:47am on September 6, 2022 (UTC).

    Another upgrade on the execution layer, Paris, will be triggered by a specific Total Difficulty threshold called the Terminal Total Difficulty (TTD) with a value of 58750000000000000000000, expected around September 15, 2022 (UTC). 

    This will mark the official Merge and Ethereum’s transition from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake.

    Stay tuned for more updates on the Merge and our product suite.
