The Berlin upgrade block 12,244,000 is scheduled to occur on  Fri, Apr 16, you can find a countdown to it here.

What is Berlin Update?

A network upgrade is a change to the underlying Ethereum protocol, creating new rules to improve the system. A "Berlin" name is part of a new name-convention, when the naming of new network updates will be made after Devcon cities, Berlin being where the Devcon 1 happened.

As ETH Hodler, do I need to do anything?

Nope, if you are not notified by your exchange or wallet service, there is nothing to worry about.

As ETH node operator/miner, do I need to do anything?

To not be stuck with an incompatible blockchain, you need to update your Ethereum client to following versions:

go-ethereum (geth)  > 1.10.1

OpenEthereum (f.k.a. Parity) > 3.2.0

Nethermind >  1.10.31

Besu >  21.1.2

EthereumJS VM >  v5.2.0


Thanks for the read, and I wish you Diamond Hands!
