Today’s Cryptocurrency Headline
The Ethereum Foundation confirmed the timing of the mainnet merger in a blog post. The Merge is a two-step process. The first step is a network upgrade, Bellatrix, on the consensus layer triggered by an epoch height. This is followed by the execution layer’s transition from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake, Paris, triggered by a specific Total Difficulty threshold called the Terminal Total Difficulty (TTD). The Bellatrix upgrade is scheduled for epoch 144896 on the Beacon Chain — 11:34:47am UTC on Sept 6, 2022. Paris, the execution layer’s portion of the transition, will be triggered by the Terminal Total Difficulty (TTD) of 58750000000000000000000, expected between Sept 10-20, 2022. The exact date at which TTD is reached depends on proof-of-work hash rate.
BingX’s Bitcoin Chart
According to The Block, as of August 24, the NFT marketplace volume for the month was $369.53 million, compared with $675.43 million in July — a roughly 46% decline. Bitcoin price is almost flat over the past 24 hours. The largest cryptocurrency has been trading in a tight range between $20,800 and $21,500 since 19 Aug, indicating the demand dries up at higher levels. For now, the bulls need to push the Bitcoin price above the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) ($22,408) to establish a relief rally. If the bulls could not hold the current level, Bitcoin could find support at around $20,000.
