What is the Ethereum Difficulty Bomb & Why Does It Matter Right Now?



In this video I share the history of the Ethereum Difficulty Bomb going all the way back to the Frontier Network Update in 2015. I review the previous times Ethereum Difficulty Bomb has gone off and been diffused with a hardfork. Lastly, I discuss why it’s important right now considering the looming Merge of the POW and POS networks.
