What’s In the Pipeline?

Ethereum completed its long-anticipated Merge from the consensus mechanism proof-of-work (PoW) to proof-of-stake (PoS) in mid-September. However, there are five other stages in the pipeline.

Since the Merge, Ethereum has entered the second stage on its roadmap, The Surge. The idea behind the surge is for 10,000 transactions to take place per second through rollups.

On Saturday, Buterin took to Twitter to show users what else is in the pipeline by sharing an updated roadmap diagram:

After the Surge are three additional stages – the Verge, the Purge and the Splurge. However, the roadmap shows a brand-new step that’s never been mentioned before, dubbed the Scourge.

The Scourge plans to include “reliable and credibly neutral transaction inclusion and to avoid centralization and other protocol risks from MEV.” Buterin wants to rectify MEV due to many associating Ethereum with a higher level of centralization.

Buterin is yet to reveal full details regarding how this new phase will achieve such goals. Thus far, the co-founder hints that the new stage will include a “Partial Block Auction” solution, so a block builder can decide the contents of the block to decrease the level of influences.

He also says Ethereum will implement a “more explicit role for quantum-proofness” at various stages of the Ethereum roadmap—as a necessary component of the “endgame” protocol.
