Yesterday, the Ethereum Foundation revealed the final timeline for the transition from proof-of-work (PoW) to proof-of-stake (PoS), perhaps the most eagerly anticipated event in the brief history of cryptocurrency. As we’re just a few weeks out from a brave new world, what does PoW versus PoS mean for the average investor? And will it be smooth sailing from here to there? Marco Olivera and Ash Bennington cover all things ETH Merge before breaking down developments in the Three Arrows Capital collapse and the Tornado Cash controversy. In today’s feature segment, Corby Pryor, the chief operating officer of Oorbit, joins Ash for a conversation about the current state of crypto security and why everyone in the ecosystem must be on alert. We want to hear from you – please share your questions in the chat.
