The Goerli testnet has been successfully merged and is now a full Proof of Stake chain.Next up is (finally) the Ethereum mainnet!!The Merge is coming 🐼
The Ethereum POS merge is expected in September 2022 after the last Goerli testnet completed a transition to proof-of-stake in August 2022.
This latest merge follows a similar transition on the Sepolia testnet in early July 2022, and the first transition on the oldest Ropsten testnet in June 2022.
With Goerli done, Ethereum developers have projected that the merge could occur around September 15-16th, 2022, as revealed by various reports.

According to Ethereum, Proof-of-Stake comes with a number of improvements over the Proof-of-Work system:
The Merge was initially scheduled for June 2022 but has been postponed several times as the Ethereum team needed to confirm that all tests are successful at each stage.
