Is It Too Early to Be Talking About a Merge for Dogecoin?

Is It Too Early to Be Talking About a Merge for Dogecoin?

In the aftermath of the Merge, Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) is now the second-largest proof-of-work crypto in the world by market capitalization, trailing only Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC). Not only is proof of stake a faster, more efficient, and cheaper consensus mechanism for verifying transactions on the blockchain, it also uses considerably less energy. Thus, if Dogecoin is to have any chance of remaining relevant in the future, it needs to follow the lead of Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) and make the transition to proof of stake.
