The Ethereum Cat Herders are hosting a call on EIP-1559 featuring the major stakeholders concerned with the proposal: EIP champions researchers, developers & miners from the Ethereum community. After a brief overview, the panel will discuss the concerns raised by miners about the EIP, discuss relevant development and research updates and answer community-submitted questions.

What is EIP-1559?

👥 About the Stakeholder Call

The EIP champion will explain the proposal, sharing some of the research & testing work done around the proposal to fill in everyone with the current state of development. Miners will then have an opportunity to voice their concerns about the EIP, which developers and researchers will try and address. If time permits, questions from the community will also be addressed.

With the change in the transaction fees distribution as proposed in the EIP, some of the Ethereum miners’ expressed their dissatisfaction; which was also collected in the 1559 community outreach report. As the development progressed, a handful of miners showed-up in the 1559 Discord insinuating the mainnet deployment to be a contentious upgrade. This community call is mainly to address miners’ concerns and build consensus for the Ethereum network upgrade followed by the Berlin upgrade.
