Ethereum's transition from the network's proof of work model to proof of stake — also known as The Merge — is scheduled to take place on September 14th. This represents a crucial milestone for the digital asset sector's most widely used blockchain and its cryptocurrency, Ether. The upgrade is a technological feat that will cause Ethereum's energy consumption to plummet, with proponents believing it will bolster Ethereum's long-term prospects. Michael Rosmer, Co-founder of DeFiYield, talks about the significance of the Merge and what it means for developers on the network.
