As a result of Thursday’s highly anticipated switchover, it is reported that worldwide electricity consumption will be reduced by 0.2%. Following the completion of The Merge, ethereum fell below a temporal support point of $1,615, pushing price closer to a one-week low. Many now believe that bears will attempt to send prices lower, with some expecting that a floor of $1,550 could be the intended exit target. Overall, levels of volatility will rise over this period, as uncertainty heightens on what the Merge event will mean for the value of ethereum going forward.”
