Ethereum developers confirm the addition of EIP-7702 and PeerDAS to the Pectra update

  • The following update is anticipated to launch in Q1 2025.

Anthony Sassano, an Ethereum educator, has announced that Ethereum developers have verified a list of Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs) to be added into the Pectra upgrade. The EIPs EIP-7702, EIP-7594 (PeerDAS), and EIP-7251 (MaxEB) are noteworthy examples.

A group of Ethereum developers, including Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, proposed EIP-7702, which aims to improve account abstraction and enable addresses to function as smart contracts during transactions.

Developers had earlier recommended EIP-3074 be replaced with EIP-7702, which is an upgrade. While addressing its possible hazards, EIP-7702 is anticipated to provide benefits akin to those of EIP-3074.

PeerDAS, or EIP-7594, seeks to enhance roll-up scalability in the interim. The optimization of layer 2 (L2) solutions, such as Base and Arbitrum, is the main focus of this proposal. It is anticipated to improve L2 transaction processing.

Furthermore, validators will be able to stake up to 2,048 ETH according to EIP-7251, or MaxEB, which is a significant increase over the present cap of 32 ETH.

Additionally, the upgrade will include EIP-2537 and EIP-7549, which are connected to EOF and concentrate on efficiency and improvement in cryptography.

According to Sassano, Ethereum’s Pectra should launch in Q1 2025, which is in line with the schedule that the platform’s developers previously revealed. The upgrade comes after the March deployment of the Dencun upgrade, which went smoothly.

Pectra, according to Sassano, will signal a significant turning point in Ethereum’s development plan.
