Original title: “Ethereum 2021 Timeline of Major Events”
Written by: Coldsnap
This article has compiled a timeline of major events in Ethereum in 2021. The progress will be continuously updated on the WeETH Staker forum, link:
This article is compiled from an article by Reddit user u/Coldsnap on Reddit. The major events organized here mainly have two aspects:
The first is the upcoming Eth1/Eth2 upgrades: Berlin (April), Altair (June), London (July), and Shanghai (second half of 2021).
The second is expansion. The route chosen by Ethereum is to use rollup technology at the beginning (this year) (there are multiple types, please see below), and the next year is sharding.
The events listed below are not complete, only the more well-known ones have been selected.
