A system consists of different factors upon which it builds itself and upon which it survives. These are the pillars resting upon which it moves towards success or failure, therefore cannot do without them. Likewise in the crypto industry, investors play an important role, which is quite evident and needs no mention. Therefore, whatever goes on in the system also affects those who are a part of it. Each action or change that is taken or made, cannot be taken into account excluding these important members of the system.

One such instance is the Ethereum merge that has taken place most recently. This article endeavors to shed light on how this merger has offered a new place for several institutional investors.

What is the role and importance of investors?

Themegamergerst has occurred recently and has been referred to as one of the historic moments since the birth of Ethereum. Therefore, being such an important step it is needless to say, that it would bring certain changes for each and everyone involved in it.

Let’s take a look at the merge

In the merge, a more than amazing transformation took place which left each and everyone associated with and those who witnessed it, in awe of it. Rye blockchain network shed down its previous proof-of-work status and adopted the new proof-of-stake mechanism. It has been widely appreciated and has even been compared to a courageous act and almost impossible task such as changing the jet engines while in the air. The best part is it functioned without any interference or glitch of any sort.

What are the other changes that followed?

Various other changes followed the merge. For example, Ethereum in its new form has endeavored to cut down on electricity consumption by a lot. It has almost lowered its energy consumption by an estimated 99.95%, which is a remarkable step taken by the crypto asset. This has also, for the moment, diverted those who were eagerly waiting to impose restrictions on the blockchain network due to environmental concerns.

Even though the merger has come with various benefits and is even estimated to give rise to more, there is still one concern that has not yet been solved. The issue of Ethereum’s scalability remains. It has not yet taken any efficient step in solving its lack of scalability permanently. Even though it is magnificent, it has not yet been completely adopted by institutional investors. There are still various facets that need more attention and time to be resolved or reformed.

However, keeping aside all other factors, the fact that the merger has been responsible for lowering energy consumption, is an achievement that needs to be acknowledged and appreciated. It is soon expected to bring about changes for not only itself but other crypto assets as well.
