The world’s dominant smart contract network, Ethereum, will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of web3. The upgrade roadmap has several phases that will cement Ethereum’s position as the foundation for the next iteration of the internet. The Ethereum endgame path will take several years to play out but it is shaping up to have a huge impact on the internet as it evolves. Ethereum Upgrade Roadmap On September 6, Web3 developer Stacy Muur took a deep dive into the Ethereum roadmap and its role in the next iteration of the internet. We define web3 as a decentralized internet where users own and control their data and identities. In contrast, search and social media corporations dominate the current version, Web2, profiting from the harvesting of user data. The Merge was probably the network’s most significant upgrade since it launched in 2015. However, there are more major milestones ahead.

Proto-Danksharding will be introduced with EIP-4844 expected in Q4 2023, to minimize the operational expenses associated with rollups and layer-2 networks. After that, ‘The Scourge’ will provide upgrades that prioritize censorship resistance, decentralization, and address protocol risks related to MEV (maximal extractable value). Ethereum roadmap.
