Merge Ethereum finally about to happen
One of the biggest events in the crypto world is coming. Ethereum is finally set to undergo the Merge following six years of hard work. The soft deadline is on September 15th, but it may shift due to the technical complexity of the process. The event is significant indeed, as it will upgrade the blockchain to a completely new level, bringing more scalability and security.
After The Merge, the network will be using staked ETH to confirm transactions, thus enhancing the security and aborting energy-consuming mining. In fact, this transition will reduce the energy consumption by about 99.95%. It is going to bring a completely new philosophy to the way the crypto space works.
