The Merge is rapidly approaching and will transition Ethereum from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake after 7 years of research and development. In this episode of Around the Block, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin and Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong discuss Coinbase’s responsibility as an infrastructure operator, maintaining a credibly neutral Ethereum network, and why Ethereum leaves privacy up to the builders. This episode is hosted by Senior Protocol Specialist Viktor Bunin.
