Only a few days left before the official launch of the Ethereum Merge! Almost all cryptocurrency platforms talk about it. Ethereum’s transition from PoW to PoS is indeed shared by the big names in crypto. The main topic of debates and announcements: whether blockchain is supported or not.
PoS The Merge ETH instead of hard forks!
Considered the largest non-fungible token (or NFT) marketplace in the world, OpenSea needs to have a say in the transition from Ethereum to PoS. The platform would like to be categorical on two essential points. For one thing, it will only support the Ethereum proof chain. On the other hand, it states that this support will only be effective once the merger is complete.
Much anticipated for months, this Ethereum upgrade has a very specific purpose: to create a more ecological cryptocurrency and therefore less energy. According to analysis, this new version would save around 99.9% of the energy.
An OpenSea product to facilitate the transition
For months, OpenSea has been preparing for the Ethereum merger: The Merge. For the sake of transparency, the platform is currently working on an OpenSea product intended to facilitate the transition. It also provides users with a dedicated team whose mission it will be to monitor the entire upgrade process. It will also ensure exchanges and communication with the developers.
If all goes well, The Merge of Ethereum launch will take place between September 10th and September 20th. OpenSea is not the only Web3 platform preparing for this merger. Minors also complete the list.
