EIP-1559 will be included in the London hard fork in July 2021
Today, Ethereum developers discussed the implementation and inclusion in the next hard fork (London) EIP-1559, proposed by Vitalik Buterin back in 2019.
EIP-1559 is an important update for Ethereum, designed to move the network from an auction-based fee generation model to the automatic calculation of fees to miners for transactions taking into account the load.
EIP-1559 can lead to deflation. As gas is consumed, most of this ETH will be burned, which in the long term may even lead to a decrease in the amount of ether. Thus, developers will reduce the load on the network and get rid of investor fears about “High inflation”…
