Crypto: Ethereum (ETH) - The "Migration" Is Expected To Begin

After many years of announcements, the Ethereum Foundation yesterday set an official date for the complete transition to the Proof-of-Stake (POS) blockchain. As previously anticipated, there have been no delays, so the 'migration' is expected to begin as early as 6 September.

The upgrade, known as 'Bellatrix', involves replacing ETH miners with validators, a kind of 'nodes' of the Proof-of-Stake system. They will be responsible for storing data, processing transactions and adding more chain blocks. Each validator is expected to hold a min. 32 ETH - at the current price, this is approximately $60000. 

The Ethereum Foundation expects to activate the Beacon Chain as early as 6 September. This is expected to be the first test connection to begin the complete transition to POS. The activation is scheduled for 11:34:47 UTC.

After the initial activation, the Terminal Total Difficulty (TTD) triggering the Merge is expected to reach a value of 5875000000000000000000000000000. This is nothing more than the level of synchronisation of the blockchain, which will become a Proof-of-Stake (POS) chain once the threshold value is exceeded. The timetable is for this to be achieved between 10 September and 20 September. According to CoinDesk, Ethereum developers estimate that this moment will occur on 15-16 September.

Merge could have an impact on the crypto world and its prospects. Its scale seems to surpass the ETH split of 2016 and could point to new areas of growth such as a Proof-of-Stake solution, energy efficiency and much lower commissions. 

In addition to its impact on the development of technology and ETH, the transformation may also affect other tokens that are heavily influenced by the changing ETH blockchain. We are talking primarily about LDO, ETC and OP tokens. These are projects to which an upgrade could give new meaning. 

Additionally, yesterday Vitalik Butterin, founder of Ethereum, published a post on Twitter in which he stated, "People continue to underrate how often cryptocurrency payments are superior not even because of censorship resistance but just because they're so much more convenient,". By this, he seems to be referring to the fundamentals of crypto and the changes to come.
