Ethereum Completes Dencun Network Upgrade on Goerli Testnet

Ethereum has effectively rolled out the Dencun network upgrade on the Goerli testnet.

On January 17, Ethereum’s development team successfully deployed the much-anticipated Dencun upgrade, marking the successor to the Shapella upgrade (also referred to as the Shanghai upgrade) implemented in 2023.

The Dencun upgrade prominently introduces EIP-4844, which is known as proto-danksharding. Proto-danksharding, being the central component of this upgrade, enables the temporary storage of off-chain data. This innovation aims to alleviate the storage demands placed on Ethereum nodes.

This advancement is poised to bring about a substantial reduction in transaction fees for decentralized applications (dApps), offering significant benefits, especially to Layer 2 rollup chains.

Dencun is Goerli Testnet’s Last Upgrade

The Ethereum core team has stated that the Dencun upgrade will serve as the final upgrade for the Goerli testnet, which happens to be Ethereum’s initial multi-client testnet, before developer support is discontinued.

The team announced, “Either three months after the Goerli Dencun activation, or one month after the Dencun mainnet activation, whichever comes later, teams will begin exiting their validators.” They emphasized the importance of users who rely on Goerli as a stable testnet to migrate to alternative options before this transition.

Furthermore, the team encouraged application and tooling developers to utilize Sepolia for testing decentralized applications, smart contracts, and other Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) functionality. Stakers and infrastructure providers interested in protocol-level testing were advised to consider using the recently launched Holesky testnet.

The upgrade, known as “Dencun,” combines the naming conventions for Ethereum’s consensus and execution layer upgrades. In Ethereum’s tradition, consensus layer upgrades are typically named after stars, while execution layer upgrades are named after Devcon city locations.

“Dencun” merges “Deneb,” a prominent first-magnitude star in the Cygnus constellation, with “Cancun,” the city that hosted Devcon 3. This naming choice symbolizes the collaborative and interconnected nature of the upgrade, spanning both layers of Ethereum’s architectural framework.

The developers live-streamed the upgrade process, and if no significant issues arise following the successful implementation on the Goerli testnet, it will proceed to be deployed on the Sepolia and Holesky networks.

Buterin Says Validiums are Not Genuine Rollup Solutions

Ethereum’s co-founder, Vitalik Buterin, has recently ignited a debate concerning the classification of layer 2 scaling solutions, with a particular focus on Ethereum’s validiums. Buterin argues that validiums, which rely on off-chain data storage, should not be categorized as true rollup solutions.

Validiums, while providing scalability by using zero-knowledge proofs for off-chain transactions, encounter challenges related to data availability. This distinguishes them from ZK-rollups, which publish complete transaction data on the Ethereum mainnet.

The discourse within the Ethereum community about the evolution and categorization of scaling solutions has gained prominence as Ethereum progresses with its Dencun upgrade.

I want to save money. Will cryptocurrency work?

Cryptocurrency is essentially virtual money that operates in a decentralized manner, not through a bank but directly on multiple independent computers.

Every cryptocurrency has two main components: the units of digital exchange called “coins” and the network within which the exchange takes place. These units can be transferred between wallets and exchanged on exchanges. The networks in which these coins exist are called blockchains, which translates to “chains of blocks.”
