OpenEthereum Company assist close with the Merge fast address

OpenEthereum has stopped support for its software

"We look forward to the next phase of clean, green, and massively scalable blockchain infrastructure," the OpenEthereum team wrote in a blog post on its popular programme.

In preparation for the impending Ethereum Merge, OpenEthereum, one of the most popular Ethereum (ETH) clients, has stopped support for its software.

OpenEthereum develops "clients," or software that allows anybody to construct an Ethereum node and mine the cryptocurrency, which currently uses a proof-of-work (PoW) consensus process.

With the Merge nearing and the legacy codebase becoming "increasingly difficult to handle" due to its age, the OpenEthereum team decided it was time to cease support in a Twitter thread.

The OpenEthereum team stated that "clearly documented" clients were required to "handle the forthcoming Merge and successful shift to proof-of-stake (PoS)," encouraging users to utilise Nethermind or Erigon as clients.

The Merge is the name for the Ethereum blockchain upgrade that will combine the existing proof-of-stake Beacon Chain, which was released in December 2020, with the present proof-of-work main net, which validates transactions on the network.

Ethereum engineer Preston Van Loon indicated last week that the upgrade would happen in August 2022 "assuming everything goes according to plan" because of the imminent Repsten testnet integration.
