The Merge testnet activation means that Goerli started adding blocks to its network relying on the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) infrastructure instead of Proof-of-Work (PoW) one. The devs highlighted that the activation of this update went as intended.
As covered by GetBlock previously, in June-July, 2022, The Merge was activated in Sepolia and Ropsten testnets. Also, a number of ‘one-time’ testnets was launched to stress-test PoS mechanisms for the upcoming Ethereum (ETH).
Ethereum (ETH) mainnet migrates to PoS on September 15
Mainnet activation of The Merge is the next phase of its PoW-to-PoS transition. For the first time ever, Ethereum (ETH) core devs decided to change the date of the activation to the earlier one. As such, the update will be activated on Ethereum (ETH) nodes on Sept.15 instead of Sept.19.

On this day, Ethereum (ETH) beacon chain will be integrated with its deposit staking contract into a single Proof-of-Stake (PoS) ecosystem. Proof-of-Work (PoW) miners are ready to either move their hashrate to Ethereum Classic (ETC) or to support a hypothetical ETHPoW hardfork.
