However, this means that as previously expected, the highly anticipated EIP-1559 launch will no longer occur in July anymore.
Alongside this, Ethereum’s lead developer Tim Beiko even shared a tweet in concern. Also, Beiko emphasized that their plan for August 4th greatly depends on the user’s objection within a period of 24-hours.
Tim Beiko tweeted,
Yep, unless someone objects in the next 24h, London should land on August 4th. A few client teams have “👍’d” it already, but we want to be sure no one has a serious objection. Keep an eye out 👀
In reply to the tweet, the crypto Twitter community responded. Many people stressed that Ethereum is on the verge of going to the moon. More so, others even said that they are very happy and cannot wait to see such a read-to-go development in Ethereum.
Not only this response alone, but continuously, others also said that this is somewhat a delay but they will still wait for the day.
