Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin said recently that the team is working on five long-term phases to enhance the overall functionality of the network, with the long-awaited merger being the first thing on the schedule.
Vitalik Buterin said the merger is 90% complete, it just needs to be tested on Ropsten, and it will happen soon.
The 9th shadow fork went live recently, marking the start of the final testing phase of the merger. After the merger occurs, validators are free to start withdrawing the ETH they locked in the deposit contract.
