What Happened on April. 14th | Vitalik: Ethereum Will Focus On Scalability Post-Shapella
Buterin confirmed that Ethereum’s next hard fork, rumored to take place sometime around the start of 2024, will include EIP-4844, also known as proto-danksharding.
Researchers say EIP-4844 will dramatically improve the scalability of Layer 2 rollups by replacing “calldata” with data “blobs,” which are less blockspace-intensive for the network to process. Buterin described minimizing transaction data as “the primary bottleneck” for scaling rollups.
Buterin said proto-danksharding could deliver a 10x improvement in scalability, adding that development towards EIP-4844 “is moving forward quickly.” He added that the upgrade paves the way for full sharding.
