Announcing the Kiln Merge Testnet

  1. tldr; Kiln, the successor to the Kintsugi merge testnet, is launching proof-of-stake on March 17, 2022. Kiln is expected to be the last testnet created before existing public testnets are upgraded to proof of work. Application and tooling developers, node operators, infrastructure providers and stakers are strongly encouraged to test on Kiln to ensure a smooth transition on existing testnets.

  2. December/January. This is not the last testnet. After Kiln we'll be merging the public testnets (Rinkeby, Goerli etc) one after the other which will probably take another 6 months of testing.
