Re: [tlug] Receiving money internationally

The Merge, when ETH will switch to proof of stake, will likely happen late September or early October.

Running danger we move a bit even more offtopic..
I bet many of us reading the thread were wondering about this.

We had crypto currencies mentioned already in the thread.  For me
personally the current proof-of-work based ones like bitcoin are
out of question for anything - we are already without proof-of-work
currencies running full steam into the climate crisis.

I wonder though how chances are that in foreseeable future
proof-of-stake currencies get wider adoption.  Ethereum is apparently
planning the switch in a few weeks - they did talk about that for a
while already, so maybe it gets shifted out again.
