As the countdown to the final moments of the big Ethereum (ETH) Merge began, co-founder Vitalik Buterin joined a live stream hosted by the Ethereum Foundation to share his final thoughts. He expresses his gratitude and happiness by saying that he is “excited about exiting from the proof-of-work era.” The co-founder said that the historic transition of the network from proof-of-work (PoW) to proof-of-stake (PoS) has been on the agenda for many years.
