What is Ethereum?
Ethereum was the second blockchain network to be developed after Bitcoin. Its native token Ether (ETH) is the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap.
At their launch, both Bitcoin and Ethereum were designed to use a proof-of-work (PoW) consensus mechanism in confirming transactions within the networks. The PoW mechanism has however proved to consume a lot of energy attracting a lot of criticism from environment conservationists.
As a result, Ethereum embarked on shifting to a proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism which is less involving, less energy consuming and more efficient compared to the PoW.
Ethereum successfully completed the migration into a PoS system through the Merge Upgrade on Thursday, September 15.
Following the Ethereum Merge upgrade, a new ad campaign was started targeting Bitcoin’s energy us because of its PoW consensus mechanism.
