The Merge was executed successfully on September 15, 2022.
Ethereum Merge is an upgrade that merges the mainnet with the Beacon Chain proof-of-stake system. This marks the end of Ethereum’s Proof of Work (PoW), and a full transition to Proof of Stake (PoS).
The purpose of the merger is to have minimal impact on the operation of Ethereum's end users, smart contracts, and DApps.
