Ethereum's Sepolia Testnet Successfully Transitions to Proof-of-Stake

Ethereum’s Sepolia Testnet Successfully Transitions to Proof-of-Stake

The Sepolia proof-of-work chain successfully merged with its proof-of-stake chain on Wednesday, taking Ethereum one step closer to its own Merge moment.

The penultimate test environment network (testnet) merge before Ethereum makes its long-awaited move from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake has successfully been completed.

  • Sepolia was the second of three public testnets to run through the Merge. After this, Goerli is expected to merge.
  • The network transitioned to proof-of-stake (PoS) when the Terminal Total Difficulty (TTD) exceeded 17,000,000,000,000,000. This occurred around 17:00 UTC.
  • In the hours since the testnet merge happened, no significant glitches have been reported.
  • The Sepolia merge was a two-step process. Ethereum announced that first the operators needed to update their consensus layer and execution layer clients together. Then this activated two phases: the first at an epoch height on the Beacon Chain and the second upon hitting the total difficulty value on the execution layer.
  • The testnet merge takes the project one step closer to Ethereum’s mainnet upgrade later this year. The first testnet merge, Ropsten, was completed on June 8.
