Ethereum Zhejiang Staking Withdrawal Testnet for Shanghai Launching



A testnet to enable the withdrawals of staked Ethereum ahead of the Shanghai upgrade will be launched today.

The Zhejiang public testnet is going live on Feb. 1 at 15.00 UTC, according to an Ethereum developer who posted the update on Jan. 31.

The testnet will give users a first taste of the withdrawal process and network functionality after the Shanghai upgrade, which is slated for March.

However, users won’t actually be able to test withdrawals until the Shanghai and Capella testnets are upgraded six days later.

This initial phase is for testing deposits to validators and familiarizing with the user interface, then trial withdrawals will be enabled on Feb. 7, the developer said.
