The Dencun upgrade for Ethereum, which is expected to bring new features and scalability improvements, may be delayed due to the need for rigorous testing. Tim Beiko, a member of the Ethereum Foundation, expressed concerns about the timing of the testnet deployment and its impact on the mainnet launch. The potential delay follows issues with Ethereum’s Holesky testnet, which is still awaiting a relaunch. Developers discussed using the soon-to-be-discontinued Goerli testnet for initial testing of Dencun, while suggesting subsequent testing on the new Holesky testnet. Dencun combines two critical upgrades and introduces proto-dank sharding for improved scalability. The Ethereum community emphasizes the importance of additional testing for a stable and secure upgrade.
