- Berlin is the planned upgrade of the ETH1 systems, which include a lot of new features that are all set to go out as per the plan in June.
- The new update, Berlin, is said to have an EIP, Ethereum Improvement Proposal, which is pretty interesting and can be useful.
In a sudden, the developers of the ETH1 want the world to wait because they claim that they have to incorporate an upgrade of the BLS signatures to verify malformed deposits.
“We want Berlin to be before the deposit contract is launched so that it can use the BLS Precompile, but, we are flexible as to when that should be to support the Eth2 roadmap,” James Hancock, the eth1 hard fork coordinator says. And James Hancock has suggested that the deposit contract should not go out before Berlin.
Berlin is the planned upgrade of the ETH1 systems, which include a lot of new features that are all set to go out as per the plan in June. Even though we know that the update has a lot of more and new features, what the update really is is still not known to anyone.
The new update, Berlin, is said to have an EIP, Ethereum Improvement Proposal, which is pretty interesting and can be useful. One of them can potentially include further improvements to the zk tech.
But compared to the BLS signature upgrade, almost none of the other Ethereum Improvement Proposals matter as far as almost 90 percent of the Ethereum community is concerned.
It also not confirms what James Hancock meant when he used the word ‘we.’ He probably said ‘we’ by referring to the Eth1 developers, which is possible since the documentation said that they Eth devs could take part in the development of the Eth2 next time.
Many researchers are saying that the Eth1 BLS upgrade, because of the update roll has been stopped, isn’t even necessary.m“BLS12-381 curve EIP is helpful anyway, it’s important for a future eth1 and eth2 bridge especially.
It would also make stronger security for the deposit contract, but this enhancement is not critically ‘required.’ Other client devs may have different opinions, though,” one such researcher who did not want to be named said.
