As of last week, Ethereum’s core developers have implemented the Shapella upgrade through a hard fork. The highly-anticipated upgrade enables users and validators to withdraw their staked ETH on the network. The upgrade took place just before 6:30 pm ET on Wednesday, marking the first major change since The Merge last year. The upgrade proved to be a positive catalyst for Ethereum, helping drive it to a new yearly high of $2,100. Stakers and validators wishing to unstake and withdraw their assets have two options: Full and Partial withdrawals. The withdrawal cycle, however, varies based on the type of withdrawal, and therefore the time it takes to receive the assets varies. Huge props to the Ethereum core dev team!
