Ethereum Metropolis Will Fork its First Iteration on Monday
The Ethereum Foundation and other developers in the open source development community of Ethereum are ready to roll out the first iteration the Metropolis hard fork proposal by next week.
According to Jordan Daniell of ETHNews, the Metropolis hard fork is set to be executed in two separate phases.
The first iteration of the Metropolis hard fork is called the Byzantine hard fork, a solution that is expected to minimize the actions of bad actors within the Ethereum ecosystem.
The Byzantine hard fork will be integrated into Ethereum’s testnet on block number 1,700,000, which could be as early as Sept. 18.
In an interview with Cointelegraph in April, Buterin noted that the Ethereum Foundation will continue to improve the core protocol of Ethereum.
