The Ethereum Merge
“Ethereum Merge” has been the hottest buzz word for a while now. The world’s largest blockchain’s move from PoW to PoS that is planned since 2014 is finally coming to fruition. The move from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake comes in to tackle the highly energy intensive methods of verifying blockchain transactions and ease the barriers to entry.
The move will bring in the much needed scalability without compromising on the security. Although it is being debated, Ethereum’s official website claims the move to be for the betterment in all aspects. Ahead of the merge that is scheduled for 15th September, users have doubts over the Merge. They are uncertain about what will happen to their Ethereum holding post the merge.
The Ethereum team’s message to the holders of Eth is that “You do not need to do anything with your funds or wallet before The Merge.” Although this should be good enough for people to not worry, it is always better to have a clear picture as such things at times may differ from one platform to another. Some people are not familiar with the technicalities of the merge and might be anxious about their funds.
