The Ethereum Cat Herders are hosting a countdown call for the Berlin upgrade that will be joined by EIP authors, EIP editors, client developers, & the Ethereum community. Because of variable block time, the live stream will begin 45 minutes before the estimated time for fork block, 12 244 000, is mined.

👥 About the Ethereum upgrade countdown community call

We believe that a blockchain is decentralized in the true sense when we celebrate every milestone together. This April, the Ethereum blockchain will be deploying the Berlin upgrade which is the 10th major upgrade on the network. Coming so far along would not have been possible without your support.

The Ethereum upgrade countdown community call is expected to be an hour-long which will also provide an opportunity to learn about the Ethereum improvement proposals, network upgrades, and ask questions about the proposals expected in the upcoming upgrades.

London, the upgrade after Berlin, is already announced and the proposals expected in that are being shortlisted. You may follow the proposals and the current status of the EIP in the upgrade process at eth1.0 spec.

🪑How to join

If you have a question about the EIP process, network upgrade process, proposals for upcoming upgrades, or general understanding of the Ethereum 1.0 chain, please post your question at Reddit or join the live-stream chatbox.

Along with Ethereum Cat Herders, in this call, you may expect EIP authors, client team, EIP editor(s), researchers to be able to answer all your questions. Join us at ECH YouTube.

Everyone is welcome to join us!


It is always helpful to have some resources available for any major milestone. Multiple resources are available in terms of blogs, & video explanations for reference:

And a video explanation of every proposal going in this network upgrade is available in the Berlin PEEPanEIP playlist.
