After the Merge, Ethereum developers will concentrate on scaling solutions and halt asset withdrawals.

Developers of Ethereum are likely breathing a sigh of relief now that the blockchain's environmentally friendly Merge upgrade is live and operational. The developers are expected to divert their attention to fixing additional Ethereum-related difficulties that will further refine its functionality and application cases. Scaling solutions for the blockchain and enabling withdrawals of staked assets are apparently two significant focus areas that could pique the interest of developers. The primary objective is to enable Ethereum users to rely on the blockchain for diverse use cases.

Now, according to a report by The Block, Ethereum's revised proof-of-stake (PoS) algorithm will permit scaling solutions in the near future.

Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum, stated in a July interview that Ethereum's transaction processing speed may be increased to 100,000 transactions per second from its current rate of 15 to 20 transactions per second. This is the next major objective for Ethereum developers.

Ethereum's future development includes four processes: sharding, sharding, implementing proposer builder separation (PBS), and decreasing the overall history and storage requirements for validators.

Proto-danksharding would implement data blobs to enhance the amount of data Ethereum blocks can store and reduce transaction fees on Ethereum layer-2 chains by a factor of one hundred. Layer-2 protocols enable cheaper transactions while retaining the security advantages of Ethereum's base layer.

The goal of sharding is to reduce the cost of processing a large number of transactions by sending them in batches to the main network.

While the PBS idea will provide a sufficient number of validators for decentralization and data availability sampling on the post-sharded Ethereum network, modifying the total history and storage requirements for validators would reduce the cost of validator operation.

All of this will reduce Ethereum's need on centralized networks and preserve its decentralized nature, according to The Block.

The Ethereum Merge update was released on September 15, making the most commercialized blockchain environmentally friendly.

The Merge was initially suggested in 2014. Decentralized finance (DeFi) applications purportedly valued more than $100 billion (about Rs. 7,61,100 crore) are supported by the blockchain and cannot be put at risk.

PoW mining requires a competitive validation technique to confirm transactions and add new blocks to the blockchain, whereas PoS mining employs randomly selected miners to validate transactions. Therefore, PoW mining is more expensive to maintain.
