Honouring the birth and the merge of Ethereum
In 2014, Vitalik Buterin first introduced Ethereum to the world at the Bitcoin Conference in Miami, USA. During this time, the rapid growth of the Ethereum and its surrounding environment is tangible, as blockchain and digital assets aficionados in the space have jointly experienced and witnessed how the network and its community have evolved and technologically advanced over the years.
The story of Ethereum initiated with the unveiling of its genesis block, as a result of a 42-day Bitcoin crowdfunding event in July 2014. There was a total of 31,531 bitcoins raised during the crowdfunding round, which translates to USD 18.43 million, making it the second largest crowdfunding project of that period. The crowdfunding report received a total of 8947 transactions from 8893 exceptional reports. Laying the groundwork for what would become the world’s most extensively used blockchain smart contract platform, the participation of these 8893 reports started the Ethereum project.
Since its introduction, Ethereum has carried out key network and protocol upgrades such as, Byzantium (2017), Constantinople (2019), St. Petersburg (2019), Istanbul (2019) and utmost newly the Berlin (2021) and London (2021) hard fork upgrades. The Merge, which indicates Ethereum’s full transition from the Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake consensus instrument, is anticipated to be finalized in 13-15 September 2022.
This initiative would bring together the most artistic creators in the blockchain business.
EtherPOAP is a series of community events created by the most zealous supporters and community members of the Ethereum network to issue a series of NFTs to honour the most historic Ethernet mergers. Devoted to honouring the Web3 premium network built on Ether, it was introduced by dozens of Web3 head establishments, produced, distributed and incubated by the IPrinter DAO.
