What is Ethereum Merge

 Ethereum's developers say the upgrade will speed up transactions and reduce energy usage by 99.9%. It will also move ETH from the proof-of-work stage to the proof -of-stake stage.

Although most major exchanges have suspended the trading of ETH and ERC-20 tokens,Tokens kept in hot and cold wallets can still be accessed by investors for monitoring.

As in 2016, if the Ethereum Merge results in the Blockchain splitting into two, it could lead to duplication of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The Ethereum-based gaming application Axie Infinity announced on Twitter that it would support Ethereum proof-of-stake (ETHPoS) following the Ethereum merger.

Will Ethereum fees decrease after the Merge?

No. There is no expectation that Ethereum transaction fees will change as a result of the Merge.

What is the impact of the Merge on Ethereum transaction speeds?

Yes. Ethereum blocks are issued once every 13 or 14 seconds in today's proof-of-work (PoW) system
