Crypto Gems

The Ethereum Merge with Dankrad Feist

Join Daily Airdrop

This segment originally aired on August 3, 2022.

On this week’s show, our host Brian McGleenon is joined by Dankrad Feist, a core researcher at the Ethereum Foundation. This episode forecasts the disruptive impact of the upcoming Ethereum ‘merge’ on the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

We look at the impact on the price of Ethereum’s native cryptocurrency, ether, which will become a deflationary token following the merge. The world’s second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap will make a full transition from the high energy intensive ‘proof of work’ method of validating transactions on the blockchain to a ‘proof of stake’ way of validation, that will only use a fraction of the energy.

  1. Market slumps are one of the worst times to withdraw your moneey from the market. I’m confident the current market has an equal possibility of making high-value gains or losses, so I'm cautious with my selections; but, I heard that a trader made over $250k in this recession influenced market, and I could really need ideas on how to achieve similar profits.

  2. Sounds like they’re creating inflation to pay for their security costs he slipped up there and said get back to the same security haha

  3. Always<feel better after watching your daily streams, thank you! I don’t care if btc hits 18k or 100k I’ll continue to buy when it dips and trade then sell when it rips. I’ll let the rest of you lose your minds thinking you need to check and worry everyday. The lower BTC goes, the better. Like I said under one of the previous videos I think we might make a lower low. And that is purely based on the whales (10k+bitcoin) selling and they have yet to start accumulating. Ofcourse they could be wrong this time but they have always been right and bought near the bottom to then sell at the top so I doubt it is different this time. That is the only reason I give the bearish scenario a higher probability myself. Volatility is the price you pay for great returns. My personal advice is to get into crypto market if you haven't already. Trading Made me realize BTC is a multi-generational wealth asset. I have maybe 40 years left if I am lucky so will pass the mantle (and the private keys) to my kids. Bitcoin’s recent nosedives continued in the past 24 hours, and the asset slipped to a new three-week low of under $21,000. Ethereum is in a similar position, having lost another $100 daily. In order to make profits in the stock market/Bitcoin investment one has to be a trader and also have a good strategy and proper realization of how the holders manipulate the market. As a trader I have been able to day trade and atop over 17 BTC with just 4.08 BTC but with the guidance and accurate trade signal provided to me by my investment Advisor Mrs. Robin Moore. She is one of the best guide to invest trade and earn in the crypto money market and can be reached via ͲeIєɠɾαm @moorerobin or What'sapp +12132627458 for more tips on how to invest, trade and earn with her accurate trade signal .

  4. You <,are so right, great insight! I started investing 2 years ago and read all the old old-school rules. Turns out, above fundamental analysis of a business, human emotion drives the stock market and always has, its just evolving, in no small part, as you point out, because of social media causing extreme polarization. Solid video. I think it is important for investors to note that while the market is experiencing a mini bear rally and it could be exciting, we are still down roughly 18% on the year. Great race analogy, we are still behind and I think come August with the release of another CPI reading on August should cause some more volatility. In my opinion, this is just the beginning of a recession, BUT overall an opportunity for investors who have time to remain steadfast in a strategy for the long-term! We have an obligation and a responsibility to be investing, the market is so volatile now to be depending on the bull run to make a profit or investing without guidance, I advise everyone never to stop investing, never to stop improving, never to stop doing something new and to trade now with an Advisory who has a great experience. Taking this decision some years back has been my best decision so far this year, i have been able to day trade my crypto assets and increased my trading portfolio to over 16BTC in profits with just 4.5btc his trade strategy and guidance from my advisor Expert Marshall Clinton I am able to scale through the crazy stock/crypto downtrend and saved my finances. You all in search of a way to recover your loses from the crash and accumulate more profits can reach out to her for crypto investment and for profitable trading system or mentorship. This is one of the best medium to backup your assets incase it goes bearish.>@MARSHALLCLINTON OR What'sapp✙19144550434 And always remember to share your experience with others

  5. "Scheduled for this september" .. Or next year.. Maybe the next year after that.. Maybe by 2030.

  6. Can you make a video explaining how beginners can make huge profit within a short period of time? I mean i was at a seminar and the host spoke about making well over $880,000 within 4months of investing $150,000 i just need to know how

  7. Despite the economic downturn,I'm so happy. I have been earning $ 60,000 returns from my $7,000 investment every 13 day's.

  8. My greatest happiness is the $ 64,000 bi weekly profit I get consistently from my $15,000 investment despite the economic fluctuation

  9. Whatever type of investment you decide to get into ,I think the key message here or for me rather is to start investing no matter how small.when you invest,you're buying a day that you don't have to work ..I pray everyone reading this become successful

  10. How away from work but still earning good cash all with the help of Mr Richard Friedman. Trading with you is an awesome experience in the stock market and cryptocurrency as well.

  11. The dip has made major corporations lose billions in dollars but that’s the beauty of a long term investment as it only gets better with time and if you can act like these corporations and invest while you can then you’ll almost enjoy same benefits as they will when the prices go up. Trade with a professional trader for more funds safety and for risk management generally Mr john darry will be my recommendation
