Members of the Ethereum community responded to the latest upgrades to the Ethereum mainnet.
The much-awaited Shapella update on Ethereum has gone live, paving the way for new features like the unstaking of Ether
Community members celebrated with various responses to the newest update to the Ethereum ecosystem.
Shapella is a term the community uses that blends together “Shanghai” and “Capella,” the upgrades that happened simultaneously. The hard fork is an important milestone on Ethereum’s roadmap, leaving a lot of community members excited for the network’s future.
Many members of the community offered their congratulations to the developers of the network. Ethereum Foundation researcher Danny Ryan said that while proof-of-stake (PoS) took some time, the loop was finally complete.
At the Shapella watch party hosted by the Ethereum Foundation team, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin said that the network is now in a “really good place.” He explained that:
“We’re in a stage where the hardest and the fastest parts of the Ethereum protocol’s transition are basically over. Very significant things still need to be done, but those can be done at a slower pace.”
Meanwhile, crypto singer Jonathan Mann celebrated the new update with another song performance at the Shapella watch party.
