The Ethereum Merge Finally Happened: So What?

“The best diagram I’ve seen looks sort of like what you see in subway stations,” said Richard Smith, CEO of fintech investing tool RiskSmith and a specialist on market risk and uncertainty. “You have maps of subway lines, and sometimes two lines run in parallel, and one line kind of ends at a common station and everybody who was on that line has to move over to the line that continues on if they want to go further. That is, in a nutshell, what happens to Ethereum when the Merge occurs.”
