Ethereum Ropsten public testnet to launch June 8

1 Jun 2022

The Ropsten public testnet of Ethereum (ETH), which is the longest-lived proof-of-work (PoW) testnet and which enables blockchain development testing before deployment on the mainnet, is scheduled to run through The Merge "around June 8."

Tim Beiko, a key developer for Ethereum, was the first to break the news on Twitter, where he also provided details on the deployment of a new Ropsten Beacon Chain on May 30 to bring consensus to the network.

The Merge is a long-awaited update for Ethereum, and it will take place when the existing Ethereum Mainnet combines with the proof-of-stake (PoS) method used by the beacon chain.

Kintsugi, Kiln, and shadow forks are three of the most noteworthy examples of the several experiments carried out to determine how the merging will operate.

Despite this, the client teams' turn is to put Ropsten through The Merge. 

It is believed that the Ropsten public testnet is the best replication of the network that would allow developers to test their work in a live environment. 

This is because the Ropsten public testnet follows a network structure comparable to the Ethereum Mainnet.

Midway through May, Ethereum DevOps developer Parathi Jayanathi submitted a pull request for the code that governs the Ropsten testnet Merge configuration.

An Ethereum core engineer working at Prismatic Labs named Preston Van Loon made the following statement at the time: 

"Merging Ropsten is a huge testing milestone towards Ethereum's mainnet merge later this year."

One Ether can be purchased for $1,973, representing a gain of 3.7 percent over the previous twenty-four hours but remaining flat over the last week. 

CoinGecko's currency price has dropped by around 59.7 percent after reaching an all-time high of USD 4,878 in November 2021.
