Supporting execution-layer (previously “Eth1”) customers stays among the Ethereum Foundation’s greatest top priorities. These customer groups have actually supported Ethereum’s development over the previous numerous years, and they will continue to supply vital facilities for the network post-merge, as Ethereum shifts to a Proof of Stake agreement system. Since January 2020, the EF has actually invested more than $10M on execution-layer customer R&D. Our unfaltering assistance will continue as these groups adjust and scale together with the more comprehensive neighborhood.
At the exact same time, our company believe it is healthy for Ethereum customers to get financing and assistance from a wider series of neighborhood stakeholders, showing the development and diversity of the environment.
