The Ethereum Merge — when Ethereum will shift from a proof of work protocol to a proof of stake protocol — is almost here. It’s scheduled to happen within a week. Ethereum developers set September 19 as the soft deadline, but they seem to be ahead of schedule, so it could happen as early as Wednesday or Thursday.
As a result, ETH has broken out of the crypto market’s downward trajectory and is outperforming. But Ethereum is not the only coin worth paying attention to right now.
In this episode of Crypto Insider, Vin Narayanan and Allison Brickell discuss how the Merge impacts Ethereum miners, what it means for Ethereum Classic and Ethereum PoW, which market indicators investors should pay attention to and more.
Thanks for watching!
