Metropolis Today: The Shifting Plans for Ethereum's Next Big Upgrade

The next major Ethereum upgrade, Metropolis, is near! The tests will start on September 18th, and the expected release date of the first part is October 9th (as it was rumored, this upgrade has been split into two steps).

Apart from a lot of technical improvements, this upgrade brings a lower block reward, so miners will earn less ETH per block. Less ETH will be discovered each day, but demand will be unaffected, so my guess is that ETH price will rise (as it happened with Bitcoin a few months ago).
