Ethereum developers have successfully migrated the Goerli testnet to the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm.
The Goerli testnet has been successfully merged and is now a full Proof of Stake chain.
Next up is (finally) the Ethereum mainnet!!
The Merge is coming 🐼

During the connection, the developers carried out the merger (The Merge) of the network with the consensus level of the Beacon Chain PoS blockchain called Prater.
“Now it is a full-fledged Proof-of-Stake chain. Next (finally) is the main Ethereum network. The Merge is coming!” said EthHub co-founder Anthony Sassano.
According to developer Marius van der Weyden, there was “some confusion” on the network due to the many nodes with unupdated software. According to him, there were no problems at the code level during the transition.
And we finalized on goerli 🚀🚀🚀
There was some confusion on the network because of two different terminal blocks and lots of non-updated nodes, so we didn’t finalize earlier. We’re still looking into whats happening, but so far it looks quite good

Recall that in June the Ethereum team carried out the migration test network Ropsten on the PoS algorithm. In July — Sepolia testnet.
Activating The Merge scheduled for September. The Goerli migration was the third and final rehearsal for the merger before it went live on the mainnet.
We also note that according to the decision of the team, Kiln and Rinkeby crowds will not be transferred to PoS. After the mainnet migration, their closelike Ropsten.
Given the successful conduct of the test, the price of Ethereum pierced $1900 mark.
