Kiln is up, inspect it out
One week back, the Kiln testnet went through the Merge shift to develop from a PoW testnet to a totally practical PoS testnet.
If you run validators on Mainnet, now is the time to evaluate your post-merge setups Jump into the Kiln landing page and dig in.
Seriously It’s time.

The shift from PoW to PoS on Kiln was not without concern. Due to an encoding mistake, Prysm was producing void blocks, while a few of the execution customers had actually other mistakes connected to sync throughout the shift.
Although customers are now include total and nearing production-readiness, small software application bugs are still turning up occasionally. While these are not essential problems with the core specs and research study, this indicate something we’ve been stating for rather a very long time– security and screening will be the long tail specifying the supreme Merge release date.
To this end, customer groups, security scientists, and testers are doubling down on screening on all fronts for the next 4+ weeks in preparation for updating the general public testnets. These efforts consist of hive screening, Kurtosis testnet constructs, Antithesis protection assisted network fuzzing, shadow-forking Goerli and Mainnet, manual code evaluation, fuzzing throughout the stack, improving agreement tests, and more!
On the fuzzing front, we wish to provide a big shout-out to Blockdaemon for offering the Merge screening effort with $900k in IBM Cloud credits! Fuzzing is everything about tossing more resources at the issue than your enemy, so with these credits we’re positive that we can clean all the bugs there are to discover. Thank you
The #TestingTheMerge effort remains in full blast. Whether it be running a validator on Kiln, checking your designer workflow, composing a tutorial, enhancing paperwork, or producing a brand-new unique fuzzer, everylastbitcounts!
This is the biggest blockchain upgrade ever.Period So do your part to make it a success– join us in the Eth R&D Discord in the Merge #testing channel
