The blockchain network Ethereum has officially activated the Bellatrix upgrade, the final change before The Merge, the highly anticipated transition from proof-of-work (PoW) to proof-of-stake (PoS). Bellatrix was successfully codified into the codebase at epoch 144,896 on the Beacon chain and Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin detailed it was important for network participants to update their clients.

The Merge is estimated to take place on September 13, 2022, according to the wenmerge.com countdown, which notes there’s a hair over seven days left until the ruleset change. On September 6, Ethereum developers implemented the Bellatrix upgrade which is the final step until The Merge happens next week.

They see the transition as a way of allowing Ethereum to be valued on a discounted cashflow basis because of the payments that will be granted for staking tokens.
