The Merge is Ethereum’s long-awaited transition from proof-of-work (PoW) to proof-of-stake (PoS). It is set to occur in mid- to lateSeptember of this year. The goal of moving to PoS is to set the foundations for increased scalability and security.
While negative sentiment in crypto is arguably at extreme levels right now, crypto is a fast-moving market and changes in the ecosystem are often catalysts for a significant shift in the narrative. One such change Cumberland is closely watching is the Ethereum Merge. Although there is no definitive date for this event as of yet, based on the latest core developer call as of last week, we currently expect the Merge to occur at some point in September or October.
