According to the hardfork specificationsIn addition to EIP-1559, the update contains five other proposals.
Presented by Vitalik Buterin in 2018 EIP-1559 suggests more “fair” commissions to miners for including a transaction in a block. A certain part of them will be recorded algorithmically, depending on the network load.
This proposal received a lot of support from both developers and users in light of record commissions.
Mining pools divided about those who are willing to support EIP-1159 and those who actively oppose it. The latter group is represented by the Ethermine and SparkPool mining pools, which, along with other participants, own 60% of the network’s hashrate.
Remember that in February, Ethereum miners’ revenue from transaction validation increased 122.1% compared to January. the proportion of commissions received was 52.9% of total incomethat reached a record $ 1.36 billion.
