Google, one of the most valuable companies around the world, is gradually moving up the crypto ladder as it aims to take advantage of the fast-growing industry. However, as witnessed by Bitnation’s team, it was clear that the upcoming Ethereum Merge is recognized and anticipated by the tech bigwig as well.
Google Cloud blockchain developer Sam Padilla recently showcased the new update that has been integrated onto the Google Search function which includes a new countdown button for the Ethereum Merge, the transition of the world’s 2nd biggest cryptocurrency from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake which will make the network environment friendly.
The anticipated event has been under the radar for many crypto investors and non-investors as well. This is because the Merge has been the cause of the recent price surge for Ether that investors had witnessed. Interestingly, the real-time Merge countdown will be followed by current hashrate, difficulty, and merge difficulty.
The Google Clould blockchain developer took to Twitter to share the exciting news and added that “everyone is so excited for what is coming and appreciative of the work that has been going into this for years.”
According to the data from Google Trends, it is quite clear that the interest in the Merge has considerably increased over the past few weeks, and the tech firm predicts that the graph will continue to go up in the near future following the post. It is clear that the number of eyes on the Merge have been increasingly significantly and there is a strong possibility that it might affect the price of Ether (ETH) cryptocurrency.
Padilla’s Twitter post was watched by Sassal, an independent Ethereum educator who called the developer’s work “amazing.” However, not taking the entire credit, Padilla noted that “the actual lifting of the work was on the search and labs team internally,” and added that all he did “was kickstart the idea and discussion that led to this.”
The tech company has continued to maintain its presence in crypto as recently, Google Cloud partnered with Axie Infinity creators Sky Mavis “to tighten the security of the Ronin blockchain network and pursue its vision of building a rewarding gaming universe,” as per a new report.
