This is arguably the most important event in recent crypto history, even rivaling the creation of Ethereum itself some years ago.

With the move to PoS, there will be a lot of potential use cases that will be unlocked, making Ethereum much more useful and applicable in a wide range of industries, and empowering their smart contracts even further. Coupled with the already widest market, the proof of stake consensus mechanism and the sharding mechanism that will come soon after will overdrive Ethereum and may even leave the so called Ethereum killers in the dust, struggling to survive or hold market share. The future cannot be brighter. Furthermore, with the move, their competitors will have no choice but to innovate and invest more to keep themselves relevant and competitive, and that will drive the whole industry forward.

I am personally super excited. The next few years of crypto will be very exciting, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds, and definitely want to be part of it. Time to load up, in knowledge, experience and portfolio allocation, especially now that we are still in a bear market, which gives us the precious time to learn and earn and invest at a discount.
