The Proof-of-Stake protocol has replaced Proof-of-Work (PoW) on the Ethereum network (PoS). Through the transition, the Beacon Chain and the Ethereum mainnet will finally combine into a single blockchain.

If there are no underlying technological difficulties, the Ethereum transition will happen, according to EtherNodes’ predictions. Before now, the development team reviewed the Merge checklist before publishing it.

Recently, there have been a variety of opinions and responses to the Merge. This had a big effect on ETH and all of its cryptocurrency market derivatives. Some participants are stocking more in anticipation of a sharp price increase. In fact, some people are getting rid of what they have out of fear of instability.

The impact of sentiment on a merger on ETH funding rates

Currently, the Ethereum blockchain is the focus of increased expectations and attention. The expected time for the transition could, however, vary depending on the condition of the miners. It appears that the traders of ETH futures are planning their movements.

According to data from CryptoQuant, Ethereum funding rates have reached a new all-time low. The lowest price for the Ether derivatives is currently at this position.

The forced convergence of prices between the contract and the underlying asset is provided by the ETH funding rate. It denotes the payment made by traders who are trading long to short or short to long. The funding rate is determined by the discrepancy between the spot price of an item and its perpetual futures contract price.

According to CryptoQuant research, the funding rates for Ethereum are negative. This indicates that short traders are the order book’s dominant force. Therefore, we will compensate long traders appropriately.

Funding rates are very important to futures traders. This is so that their trading posture might be positively or negatively altered by these rates, which act as spontaneous catalysts. As a result, they will either generate enormous profits or suffer enormous losses.

Trading with high funding costs and excessive leverage typically results in losses. However, even when there is not a strong bearish influence on the market, such a reversal could still happen. As a result, they might turn to hedge for protection.
