Metadium Technology Update Schedule: Ethereum Berlin and London Hard Fork Applied

Hello Metadium community,

After the stability of the Ethereum Berlin hard fork (April 2021) and the London hard fork (in August, 2021) were verified, the Metadium team decided to reflect the updates in the Metadium blockchain.

The schedule of the metadium hard fork is as follows:

Code upgrade for Metadium Berlin and London hardfork applications: August to December 2021.

Berlin Hard Fork EIP Application and Development: August to September 2021

London Hard Fork EIP Application and Development: September to October, 2021

Testnet applied: November, 2021

Mainnet application: December 2021 to January 2022

Through this hard fork, the revision of gas cost requirements, which are characteristics of the Berlin and London hard forks, and the improvement of mutual operability of transactions will also be applied to the Metadium blockchain.

The details of the development are as follows:

Berlin Fork EIPs

EIP-2929: gas cost increases for state access opcodes

EIP-2315: simple subroutines for the EVM

EIP-2565: modexp precompile gas cost changes

EIP-2718: typed transaction envelope EIP-2930: access list transactions

London Fork EIPs

EIP-1559: Fee market change for ETH 1.0 chain (inactive)

EIP-3198: BASEFEE opcode (inactive)

EIP-3529: Reduction in refunds

EIP-3541: Reject new contracts starting with the 0xEF byte

EIP-3554: Difficulty Bomb Delay to December 1st 2021 (inactive)

Based on this hard fork, the Metadium team will work hard to create services in various areas like DID, NFT, and DeFi.

Thank you,

Metadium Team
