Ethereum Merger Proof of Stake Completed – What’s Next?

In this week’s episode of Market Talk, we welcome Dr. Julian Hosp, CEO and Co-Founder of Cake DeFi.

Dr. Julian Hosp is the CEO and Co-Founder of Keck Defy, a leading online platform dedicated to providing decentralized access to financial services. He is considered a leading influencer in the crypto and blockchain space with over a million followers across all his channels globally. He is a best-selling author and his vision is to bring blockchain awareness and understanding to one billion more people by 2025.

The merger has been everywhere lately, with various news outlets, influencers and YouTube channels covering the event as much as possible, but why is the Ethereum merger important and why is it such a significant event in crypto? We ask Julian to tear us down.

Now that the integration is finally complete and Ethereum has successfully moved from proof-of-work to proof-of-stack, what exactly has changed? Will the network behave differently for consumers or for everyday transactions? Also, what’s next for Ethereum? Are there any future improvements or changes planned? Will the merger lead to greater institutional adoption?

After the news and attention of the merger, many people were expecting a big pump or dump in the price of ETH and other cryptocurrencies. But the markets were hardly affected by the event. This begs the question, was it all just hype? We got Julian’s take on the matter.

Moving from Ethereum to the new Consumer Price Index (CPI) data. We’ve got Julian’s thoughts on what the data means and why Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies were thrown as soon as it was released. Bitcoin is hovering around the $20K level, we ask if Julian thinks it can go lower again and how low it can go this time considering all the macro economic conditions around the world. We will also discuss what important price levels to watch for Bitcoin and why they are important.
