Ether Supply Decreased By 100.000 Coins Since The Merge


Source: Ultrasound Money

For the past 217 days now, the overall supply of Ethereum has experienced a decline of about 103,092 coins.

As per Ether’s tracking site ultrasound money, this number is worth over $200 million at the present price.

What May Have Caused the Decline?

The ‘Merge’ repositioned Ethereum from its energy-intensive proof-of-work consensus mechanism to an environmentally-friendly proof-of-stake. This caused Ether’s supply to be reduced by over 100,000 coins.

If the ‘Merge’ didn’t happen and Ether was still secured by the miners instead of the stakers, there wouldn’t have been a decline.

By now, the ether supply of native coins will likely attain up to 2.52 million coins or $4.9 billion and above.

In addition, the supply of Ether’s native coins will also rise annually by 3.53%.

However, this expectation was affected by the post-Merge backlash. This led to Ethereum’s native coin supply reduction by 0.144% annually.

In addition, the made claims that up to $1.2 billion will be taken out from the Ethereum supply during the same period.

At present, Ether’s supply is nearly 120,418,032 million coins only. It is without a doubt that the Merge caused the reduction in Ethereum’s native coins supply.

However, it didn’t mainly execute the burning of Ethereum. Rather, the situation was caused by the Ethereum Improvement Proposal EIP-1559. This particular program emerged through the London upgrade.
