Now that the historic Ethereum merger is finally complete and everything went smoothly, what’s next for the network? Join us as we discuss this and more with Tim Warren, co-host of Coffee N Crypto, and Dr. Julian Hosp.

In this week’s edition of Market Talks, we welcome Julian Hosp, CEO and co-founder of Cake DeFi.

Julian Hosp is the CEO and co-founder of Cake DeFi, an intuitive online platform designed to provide access to decentralized financial services. He is widely recognized as the leading crypto and blockchain influencer with over a million subscribers across all of his channels around the world. He is also a bestselling author and his vision is to bring blockchain to the billions by 2025.

The merger has been all over the place lately and various news outlets, influencers and YouTube channels have made the most of the event, but why does the Ethereum merger actually matter and why is it such an important event in cryptocurrency? We ask Julian to take it apart for us.

Now that the merge is finally complete and Ethereum has successfully transitioned from proof of work to proof of stack, what has really changed? Will the network be different for users, or will it behave differently for everyday transactions? Also, what’s next for Ethereum? Are there any additional updates or changes planned in the future? Will the merger bring wider institutional acceptance now that the network is greener?

After all the news and attention that the merger has generated, many people were expecting a huge jump or reset in the prices of Ether (ETH) and other cryptocurrencies. But the markets were largely unaffected by the event. The question arises, was it all just advertising? We are getting Julian’s opinion on this matter.

Moving from Ethereum to the new Consumer Price Index (CPI) data, we get Julian’s take on what the data means and why it caused Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies to drop as soon as they were released. Bitcoin is hovering close to the $20k level, we ask Julian if he thinks it could fall lower again and how low it could fall this time considering all the macro factors around the world. We also discuss what important bitcoin price levels he monitors and why they are important.

Tune in to make your voice heard. We will be answering your questions and comments throughout the show, so be sure to have them ready.
