Not surprisingly european stock sold off following the announcement with stocks europe 600 pulling back 1.4 percent this shift is showing how inflation is becoming a global issue affecting advanced economies equally as we experience the same economic pressures lockdowns in china the war in ukraine and let's not forget the printing of fiat currency that's backed by nothing and government handouts during the pandemic european investors are pricing in five quarter-point rate hikes by the end of the year ethereum came out with some good news on wednesday successfully merging its longest running test net robstin with ethereum's proof of stake beacon chain the test ensured that software running on ethereum was stable and ready for final transition to proof of stake with ethereum foundation's tim baiko saying that the network is now stable and ready for what the ethereum main net will execute this fall when ethereum moves to proof of stake transactions will be verified by staked ether rather than energy consuming proof-of-work mining more test runs are in the works before the final rollout with gurley and sepolina test nets still to be used bringing the code closer to what will be used when the eth 2.0 main net goes live next steps are set to be discussed during this friday's all-core devs call it's becoming obvious that the world has a money problem with soaring global inflation and gas prices running out of control we're so tied up in the global supply chain fiat currency is showing its true colors while ethereum is showing how reliable is blockchain can and likely will continue to be that's why you'll see me putting my bets on crypto that's all i got be blessed frankie candles out [Music] you
