The update on Ethereum Merge happened today. Here’s everything you need to know about the crypto industry’s divergent perspective.
The Ethereum network moved to the proof-of-stake consensus method on September 15, 2022, bringing an end to the obsolete proof-of-work mining architecture. The ‘Merge’ update has reduced the blockchain’s energy consumption by 99.95 percent, ushering in a new phase of eco-friendly cryptography.
Just after Merge, every 12 seconds or so, when a new block is added, Ethereum will employ the “proof-of-stake” method. A lottery process will pick, from a pool of stakers who temporarily deposit their tokens to defend the network, those who will verify transactions and earn token rewards for doing so.
