Prague/Electra Upgrade

The anticipated Prague/Electra upgrade encompasses a set of improvements still in active development. It’s envisioned as a two-part upgrade with distinct functionalities for the execution layer (Prague) and the consensus layer (Electra) of the Ethereum blockchain.

Potential EIPs include further advancements in Account Abstraction for seamless user experience (Prague) or initial steps towards improved scalability with EIP-4844 (proto-danksharding). Account abstraction can make interacting with Ethereum more user-friendly and flexible. Proto-danksharding paves the way for future scalability upgrades, allowing the network to handle a higher volume of transactions.
