These Altcoins May be the Best Bet For Traders Post Merge!

It’s been an exceptionally bearish week as most of the cryptocurrencies are trading in the red. Bitcoin, the world’s first cryptocurrency, has lost its $20,000 level and is trading around the $19,000 level.

The second largest cryptocurrency by market cap, Ethereum, has also lost its key trading level and has dropped to around $1,400. Yesterday, the network entered into proof-of-stake from proof-of-work after the merge. However, the merger has had an adverse impact on the Ethereum price.

Meanwhile, Raoul Pal, co-founder at Goldman Sachs, a hedge fund company, has put forward his analysis of the altcoins that are set to outpace Ethereum after the ETH merge.

The expert believes that the Ethereum merger will be a positive event but the currency’s layer-1 competitors will be taking over because those assets are already enjoying scalability and affordability.

He feels that Ethereum is still in its initial stage and by the time ETH hits that level, other platforms would have already gone too far.

My hunch is that when we all wake up tomorrow we will realise that the change to PoS is very positive over time for ETH…But then people will again realise that there is still a need for cheaper and faster chains and that is where the marginal money will flow 1/— Raoul Pal (@RaoulGMI) September 14, 2022

As per the analysis data, a few leading layer-1 blockchains are Solana (SOL), Cardano (ADA), Polkadot (DOT), Avalanche (AVAX), Cosmos (ATOM) and Binance Chain (BNB)

Raoul Pal also claims that yesterday’s Ethereum merge will surely impact a cycle in decentralized finance (DeFi) along with improving other financial projects in the crypto world

as these L1’s are earlier in their network adoption curve, so will generally outperform in a bull market.The establishing of a benchmark yield for Web3 via ETH will also sow the seeds of another huge boom in DeFi, along with rapid growth in structured products and derivatives…— Raoul Pal (@RaoulGMI) September 14, 2022

As per the reports, the merge will make the Ethereum network more sustainable and energy efficient as the network will reduce the use of energy by 99.95%.
