The “merger” that ends cryptocurrency mining on game GPUs will not come until 2022

It turns out that it may take some time before the bane of cryptocurrency mining releases control of our precious gaming GPU stock. But a clear shift is underway. Ethereum is undergoing a huge change, appearing in the form of so-called “mergers.”

Since May, we have been waiting for Ethereum to transform the consensus mechanism from an energy-intensive and GPU-intensive proof-of-work model to a lighter, non-computation-intensive proof-of-stake model. At that time, we were promised that it would only take a few months, but since this transition did not occur, the demand for game GPUs for miners is still high.
