- It will include five EIPs
- The upgrade is based on the function of “proto-dunksharding”
- It will allow you to add more data to blocks
- The rest of the changes are aimed primarily at smart contracts.
The Ethereum Foundation is actively preparing for a new large-scale update – Dencun. It is already known that it will include five important proposals (EIP), one of which is “proto-dunksharding”. The upgrade is expected to be rolled out by the end of this year.
As in the case of Shapella, the name of this package consists of two parts – Cancun and Deneb. The first will affect the execution level, the second – the consensus.
What will be included in the update?
At the heart of the upgrade lies EIP-4844, the same “proto-dunksharding”. This change is for scaling. In fact, this is a kind of rollup that will allow you to add more data to blocks. Here here you can find a more complete description from the developers themselves.
Dencun will also include the following changes:
- EIP-1153 – A change to reduce online storage fees;
- EIP-4788 – will significantly improve the infrastructure of bridges and pools for staking;
- EIP-5656 – targets EVM code changes;
- EIP-6780 – will remove the code, which makes it possible to eliminate smart contracts.
The final build of Dencun may differ from the above. The developers promise to publish additional details in the coming months.
