Google officially adds “TheMerge” Countdown Clock


The second biggest crypto Ethereum is getting support from Google officially ahead of its important development event “TheMerge”.

Ethereum is a top-ranked smart contract-enabled Crypto project, just after Bitcoin. Just like Bitcoin, the Ethereum blockchain also operates on Proof-of-work consensus, which is an inefficient consensus technology of blockchain networks. Now the developers behind the Ethereum blockchain are working to introduce the “TheMerge” event, which will shift the Ethereum blockchain from Proof-of-work to a Proof-of-stake Consensus chain, to make the network of Ethereum highly scalable & efficient.

On 9 September, Crypto news website Cryptoslate reported that Google cloud developer Sam Padilla unveiled that Google officially deployed a countdown clock for the Ethereum’ TheMerge upgrade plan.

If any person will search the “Ethereum Merge” Keyword then the Google page will show the Countdown Clock and also will show hasrate, mining difficulty & Merge difficulty under the countdown clock.

An example of this countdown clock can be seen below, which was searched by the Bitcoinik team just before the publish time of this article.
