Ethereum ETH/USD is the second-largest token in terms of market capitalization. It has seen significant levels of growth, especially within the decentralized finance (DeFi) and non-fungible token (NFT) spaces.
This has led to it becoming the go-to blockchain for many platforms that want to adopt those technologies.
Ethereum, prior to the ETH2 upgrade, still utilizes proof-of-work (PoW), where miners contribute computing power to verify the transactions.
Ethereum adoption and increased mining revenues as a catalyst for growth
We covered what the Ethereum merge is and when it will occur on March 29.
One of the biggest social networks on a global scale, Reddit, has integrated Ethereum-based non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the platform.
Four NFTs were sold for up to $400,000 each to use as an avatar within the platform.
Keep in mind, however, that for the time being, you cannot use your own NFT as an avatar, and if you do not have one of the four initially sold, you will just need to use a given jpeg instead.
Due to the limited NFT collection, this could mean that this is just an initial test as a means of seeing how integrating NFTs would work on Reddit, and we can expect this to be expanded in the future to allow people to mint their own avatar NFTs as a sale or as a function.
Furthermore, Ethereum miners managed to reach $1.29 billion in revenues throughout March. This means that the revenues increased month-over-month by 7.2% and that Ethereum miners generated 1.08 times more in revenue than Bitcoin BTC/USD miners in March.
