Ethereum Merge makes network more vulnerable to attack — Security expert

The security expert said that while PoS isn’t “theoretically” as secure as PoW, he admits it still has “sufficient practical security.” Despite the Ethereum Merge being touted as a major upgrade to the blockchain network, its transition to proof-of-stake theoretically makes it more vulnerable to exploit.Speaking to Cointelegraph, the security researcher explained that unlike proof-of-work (PoW) systems, a proof-of-stake (PoS) system informs node validators in advance what blocks they will validate, thus enabling them to plan attacks. The security expert, who asked not to be named, is a....

After implementing the merge testnet Kiln, Ethereum is seemingly getting closer to transitioning to a full proof-of-stake (PoS) network. According to developers Kiln’s execution layer was initially launched leveraging proof-of-work (PoW) and since March 15, Kiln is running entirely under a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm. Ethereum’s Kiln Merge Testnet Goes Live Ethereum developers are making progress toward the network’s full transition from PoW to PoS, according to a recently published blog post written by the Ethereum Foundation. The blog post, called....
