Speaking of Ethereum, Ethereum’s recent merge to PoS has completely collapsed the profitability of Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) mining. GPU card pricing and inventory have started to become more volatile than ever. The prices have already plummeted to half the retail price, while used products are seeing an even more significant influx of GPUs.
Despite this, the Merge also means that Ethereum is now more environmentally friendly. According to the estimates of the Ethereum Foundation, the network’s energy consumption will be reduced by 99.95%. Buterin shared some numbers, stating that global energy consumption has decreased by 0.2% following Ethereum’s change to PoS.
