ConsenSys CEO Joseph Lubin said that he thinks The Merge will be "enormously impactful" and that there will be little disruption to the end user.
In an interview with Bloomberg TV on The Merge, the Ethereum co-founder also described the event as "probably nothing," explaining that it will be “very likely nothing in the sense that there is no disruption that’s going to be experienced by end users.”
He added, “It’ll be as smooth as if your iPhone or your laptop has upgraded its operating system automatically overnight.”
ConsenSys is the blockchain software technology company behind crypto wallet MetaMask and Ethereum infrastructure platform Infura. It recently inked a deal with StarkWare to bring ZK-rollups to those products.
Lubin closed off the interview by discussing the history of the ecosystem, suggesting that The Merge was the third major event to happen in crypto after the advent of Bitcoin and the development of Ethereum.
