On his personal Twitter, Ethereum developer Marius Van Der Wijden posted the latest updates on the Shanghai upgrade.

“First Mainnet Shadow Fork for ETH (Withdrawal) withdrawal is completed. The testing process caused some problems because the configuration with Geth was not correct. However, later this configuration stage was fixed and the nodes agreed to the latest version. We will be implementing a few “fake” nodes on both Consensus and Execution layers. These nodes will try to spam and send false information. The network is fine for now and let’s see if these test “fake” nodes can attack the network.”

Shadow Fork is a copy of the blockchain network set up by the developer community to test upgrades. According to Ethereum Foundation engineer Parithosh Jayathi, the shadow fork for this Shanghai upgrade took place at 17:40 on January 23.

Previously, Ethereum also deployed Testnet versions to test this very important upgrade.
