The Ethereum ecosystem is undergoing a profound transformation. Recently, as reported by CriptoFácil, the network received the long-awaited Dencun update, and there are already new features on the way.

In this sense, the developers have already prepared an innovative protocol simplification strategy, called the “Purge Plan”. And the biggest support for this news comes from none other than Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum.

The goal of the Purge update is to revolutionize the Ethereum protocol by simplifying its intricate structure. At the same time, it seeks to alleviate pressure on node resources, which can increase decentralization in the network.

Implementation of “Purge”

A key part of the “Purge” plan is the seamless integration with EIP-6780, which emerged during the Dencun hard fork. This strategic maneuver removes much of the functionality associated with the SELFDESTRUCT opcode, thus ushering in a wave of simplification within the protocol.

Furthermore, the Ethereum landscape is witnessing a series of ongoing “Purges” that underscore the community’s commitment to this paradigm shift. In other words, Ethereum’s main agents begin to eliminate excesses to make the network more efficient.

For example, Geth, the largest Ethereum node client, has discontinued support for the Proof of Work (PoW) network, which was still active after the Merge. This maintenance left a multitude of redundant lines of code that will now be removed, increasing the network’s efficiency.

Another significant development is the formalization of the elimination of “empty accounts” through EIP-161, a measure aimed at containing denial of service (DDoS) attacks.

Simplification and efficiency on Ethereum

Vitalik Buterin has meticulously identified several areas within the Ethereum protocol that promise greater simplification. Furthermore, he also called for network rollups to have greater decentralization.

Areas that can simplify network usage include pre-compilation, history logging (EIP-4444), LOG reform, and transitioning to SimpleSerialize (SSZ) for data structures.

With this, Buterin hopes to improve the user experience and scalability of Ethereum by eliminating unnecessary complexities. If Purge is successful, Ethereum could become more efficient in operations that truly generate value for the network.
