What is your general opinion about the Merge itself?

Merge is mainnet with the beacon chain proof of stake system. This will mark the end of proof of work for Ethereum and the full transition. This is planned to precede the roll out of shard chains.

How do you feel about the release date - is it going to be delayed?

I feel is good for Ethereum to minimaize delayed transaction because developer are focusing their efforts on transaction, and minimizing additional features that could delay this goal.

What is your price target for ETH after the merge?

I am looking plans include a post merge " Cleanup" Upgrade to address these features, which is expected to happen very soon after the Merge Completed. My price prediction for ETH $5000 going to up.

Are you using L2 (Arbitrum) already? If not, are you planning to do so after the Merge? Elaborate.

I have started using L2 (Arbitrum) In metamask because it makes transactions very easy and low for gas fees. L2 Arbitrum for the future Ethereum transactions, like some crypto's have started using it.

What is your general opinion about the Merge itself?

a situation that requires whether to suffer significant losses or circumstances that are mutually beneficial to achieve the goal of producing or mining into a better power in the future

I think a release date should not be postponed unless there are many annoying bugs and the condition of the system is not ready for use and the implementation that is less desirable is the release date being postponed

the eth target after the merger will be stronger and dominant and the price that reaches the latest and high eth is equivalent to or exceeds bitcoin, the latest eth price will be higher and will exceed bitcoin

What is your general opinion about the Merge itself?

In December 2018, Vitalik Buterin stated that Blockchain with sharing based on Proof-of-Stake (PoS) will be thousands of times more efficient. This Merge will allow more non-financial business cases to utilize the blockchain because of the reduced cost to put the thing on chain.

How do you feel about the release date - is it going to be delayed?

As far as I know, there is no release date but an expectation that the release will be somewhere in Q2 2022. I am talking here about the merge itself, not the Shard chains one can expect at the end of 2023.

What is your price target for ETH after the merge?

After the Merge, I would expect the price of ETH to be around $9500. The usage of the Ethereum blockchain will increase as the lower fees will make the Ethereum blockchain more attractive for users to develop products.

Are you using L2 (Arbitrum) already? If not, are you planning to do so after the Merge? Elaborate.

As a kind reminder, Arbitrum is a layer two solution designed to improve the capabilities of Ethereum smart contracts and address some shortcomings such as poor efficiency and high transaction costs. Although the Arbitrum mainnet launched end of August last year, I don't have the opportunity to use it so far, but I plan to use it in the nearly future as soon as it is easy to use with ETH-based NFT platforms

Ethereum 2.0 will make more crypto users to fall in ETH projects, gas fees will help to fix this problems. Also it will help ETH to stay in his prime and hype, so other projects, etc Sol cant get ahead of him

I used L2 arbitrum first time on experty when I tried to withdraw WIS and it went so easy and comfortable so good experience, but if 2.0 will reduce gas fees, I dont think I will use arbitrum again

The goal is to make Ethereum, the blockchain being upgraded, more scalable, secure, and sustainable. Among other things, it would make its crypto mining obsolete, thereby reducing the huge amount of energy required to create new tokens—a source of intense criticism.

What is your price target for ETH after the merge?

the highly anticipated Ethereum Merge, some crypto experts are putting forward Ethereum price predictions in the $10000 range. Ethereum has been on a rather bullish run. Now trading near $3,500, ETH has bounced nicely off the $2,500 range it saw for a significant portion of the year to date. Thus, bulls are out in full force, predicting higher highs for this digital giant.

What is your general opinion about the Merge itself?

i am very pleased to know that ETH is going to Proof of Stake. More importantly, the facts that ETH will see an increase to 100,000 transactions per second (TPS) is HUGE! this sets the stage for a new world in terms of smart contracts, nft's and fees.

How do you feel about the release date - is it going to be delayed?

I have seen a phasing in taking effect. Since there is so much involved involved with so many users, smart contracts, etc, i do expect a further delay to Q3 - into the summer and possibly even the fall.

What is your price target for ETH after the merge?

As the co-leader of the Crypto space and the leader of smart contracts, i am expecting a 6x on ETH. This of course will take time and be subject to regulatory developments. Short term, i am looking at new all-time highs and a price target of $7,726 by year end.

Are you using L2 (Arbitrum) already? If not, are you planning to do so after the Merge? Elaborate.

Since i am a coin holder and yield farmer, i have not yet used Arbitrum. I have added it to my Metamask wallet and am prepared to benefit from using it on Uniswap at this point.

What is your general opinion about the Merge itself?

Very optimistic that , the merge will brings a lot of benefits to ETH and cryptocurrency ecosystem in general. Firstly, the gas fee problem, due to the Proof of Work(PoW) mechanism in the current layer, I always looks for some other alternatives before using the Ethereum network. Secondly, the current challenges from the greener energy, mining creates a lot of damages to the environment.

Historically, most of the Ethereum roadmaps are delayed but I have a good feeling that this time will be difference, meaning it can happen even before the dateline.

What is your price target for ETH after the merge?

Normally, I do not like predicting price, but I believe the price can be between 7k-10k. In another words, the price could closed this year confidently closer to 10k.

Are you using L2 (Arbitrum) already? If not, are you planning to do so after the Merge? Elaborate.

I tired few times, I do not like the process, although it save gas fee and I think after the Merge I might no need it. Although the Ethereum networks growth will always generate the demand for other L2.

What is your general opinion about the Merge itself?

I fully agree with Vitalik's feeling about needing of more useful validation process. We're waiting for too long time for this update now and it's really moment to make the merge to avoid too many people turning bored about ethereum...

How do you feel about the release date - is it going to be delayed?

Despite I really want features being quickly merged, i also know that it will have many issuable steps before. I remembered miners disagreeing last eip1159 and global idea to turn ethereum into POS to save their income based on fees users paid them. Otherwise I think it will be main rememberable event for many years , when miners, builders and users will also merge same incentive, making ethereum the most usable again

What is your price target for ETH after the merge?

Due to recent events on true world, it sounds hardly to bet a price now. It's sure that it will have increasing impact, and eth pricing would target 7500$ but it would also get back lower level. .

Are you using L2 (Arbitrum) already? If not, are you planning to do so after the Merge? Elaborate.

Yes, it's good feature to make most of transactions I need, and arbitrum is easily integratable on dapps, and fees sound very interesting. Most interesting ethereum features on most affordable chain layer

What is your general opinion about the Merge itself?

The merge will make ETH environmental friendly because of moving away from proof of work to proof of stake. So the merge will do away with atleast 99.5% + energy required to mine it and will be welcomed and easy adopted in the EU region hence the growth in demand of the ETH coin.

How do you feel about the release date - is it going to be delayed?

The upgrade started a long time enough and only one step into having a staking currency by merging with beacon chain. It won't delay any longer.

What is your price target for ETH after the merge?

The price of ETH would run from the current $3500 to $10,000 then we will witness a correction and price stability after an uptrend long run around $6000.

Are you using L2 (Arbitrum) already? If not, are you planning to do so after the Merge? Elaborate.

I am already using L2 (Arbitrum) because it's cheaper and of course reliable than Eth mainnet. The building on Eth mainnet by dapps made the price of gas fees rampantly high thus the migration to layer 2 was worth it.
