Vitalik Buterin reveals new stage in Ethereum roadmap: The Scourge


Vitalik Buterin has added a new stage to the Ethereum technical roadmap to make the Ethereum network more resistant to censorship and decentralized.

As soon as Ethereum switched to a proof-of-stake (PoS) network consensus on September 15, the cryptocurrency team began developing the second phase, Surge. This step aims to reach 100,000 transactions per second using rollups.

Ethereum's new network plans were revealed by Buterin in a November 5 Twitter post - in which he introduced Scourge in an expanded six-part technical roadmap.

The Ethereum co-founders call for a more "credibly neutral" level of consensus. Buterin has previously described a credibility-neutral mechanism as "one that does not discriminate against any
specific people."

Miner-extracted value (MEV) occurs when a miner is ahead of other participants in the network in deciding which transactions should be placed in a block and in what order.

This allows miners to duplicate all winning transactions from the mempool and execute their transactions before arbitrageurs or anyone else trying to profit.

While full details of Scourge have not been disclosed, the Ethereum co-founder recently proposed a solution called "Partial Block Auction," in which a blockchain builder can influence only a portion of the block's content.
