The community’s transition occasion from PoW to PoS will dock the Beacon Chain with the Ethereum mainnet. The Merge might come as quickly as this June in response to an evaluation from crypto monetary e-newsletter Bankless though it was slated as Q1, 2022 on the official roadmap.

The ten million ETH staked within the Beacon Chain is presently incomes about 4.8% per 12 months in yield for traders. After the Merge, that yield might develop to as excessive as 15% and community operational prices can be decreased to a fraction of its PoW predecessor reported Bankless.
