We are pleased to announce that all client updates are ready for the upcoming Shapella hard-fork on Epoch: 648704 Slot: 10379264 Time: August 1, 2023 at 11:34:20 UTC! Node runners, please schedule time between now and July 30th to update your nodes - it’s critical for ensuring the security of Gnosis Chain and a successful hard-fork! The process can be completed within a few clicks. If you were a node runner durning the Gnosis Chain merge then you’ll be pleased to know that updating your validator for Shapella is a breeze in comparison. The merge required validators to run a new piece of software along with configuring the fee recipient. The Shapella hard-fork only requires node runners to update their Consensus and Execution Layer clients.
