Ethereum community pushes for Proof of Stake

PoS Round-Up is our focused biweekly report on the major news in and around the Proof of Stake ecosystem.

Ethereum

Enthusiasm for the move to Proof of Stake is heating up, and it looks like the community is pushing for it to take place sooner than originally planned. A proposal for executing the merge was made last week.

The Beacon Chain continues to run smoothly, with no further slashing events. The validator queue, which has been full since the network launched back in December, is finally clear. With 900 validators launched every day, depositors no longer need to wait three weeks for their validators to be activated.

Bits & Bytes

Cosmos

Cosmos governance proposal 41 to enable IBC transfers is currently being voted on. As expected, almost all votes are in favor of the proposal.

NuCypher

Keep and NuCypher are discussing a “hard merge” called Keanu. A merger between two large decentralized projects should be an interesting event to watch unfold.

Tezos

A proposal for Florence, the next protocol upgrade for Tezos, has been posted on the Tezos Agora forum.

NEAR and Band Protocol

Band Protocol has announced an integration with NEAR.
