News from the crypto space
Ethereum’s (ETH) long-awaited and highly-anticipated merge has been activated, according to the latest reports.
The massive update switches ETH from a proof-of-work consensus model to proof-of-stake.
As the online publication the Daily Hodl notes, the change allows Ethereum holders to stake their coins in return for rewards, and transforms the network into a far more energy-efficient model for processing and verifying transactions. Ethereum’s overall energy use is expected to plummet by about 99.9%.
The switch to proof-of-stake is also set to have a huge impact on Ethereum’s rate of inflation.
The Ethereum Foundation says the number of new ETH entering the market will witness a major drop.
