Ethereum is one of the most discussed altcoins in the space right now, after all, it has achieved much more in the past couple of months it has shifted from Proof of Work to the Proof of Stake mechanism smoothly, and with the huge support from the community.

1. Ethereum Shanghai Hard Fork is Set for March 2023

On 15th September 2022, Ethereum shifted from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake but in order to carry out that huge network upgrade, the preparation started long before The Day! Staking for Ethereum 2.0 started in December 2020, and since then many people have staked their Ethereum and earned yield over it, but could not realize that yield as the withdrawals are not possible until the Shanghai hard fork.

Good news for the Ethereum stakers, the Ethereum developers have set the date for Shanghai hard fork, it is supposed to be in March. The Ethereum developer community has faced a lot of criticism in past for keeping staked Ethereum un-withdrawable for a long period of time and looking at the sentiment and the need for unlocking developers have put that in priority. But as a result of that, a few important features are integrated like proto-dank sharding and others which will help the Ethereum network to increase the performance of rollups.

Currently, 13% of the total supply of Ethereum is locked in and by the Shanghai hard fork stakers can withdraw their Ethereum. It is possible that many of the stakers would try to realize their yield, profits, or their entire position, which might create huge selling pressure in the market. So, beware of the fact that this could affect the entire crypto market, and take your decisions accordingly.
