6.Crypto trading company QCP: Ethereum merger may not immediately lead to deflation.With the upcoming merger of eth, it is widely expected that this upgrade will make eth a deflationary cryptocurrency.

But this is not entirely true, at least for now. Although the merger may reduce the supply of Ethereum, making it a deflationary asset, low network utilization may delay the expected bullish effect. The bullish driving force will come from the burning rate. In the crypto winter, it seems that it is not so optimistic.

After the transition, this figure is estimated to drop to 1 million eth per year, which is used to pay rewards to POS Pledgors.
