World’s most popular search engine, Google, is counting down to the activation of the Ethereum Merge as a sign of recognition.
The Google ‘’doodle’’ is now counting down to the upgrade.
The nod from the search engine comes as Ethereum prepares to transition to a less energy-intensive proof-of-stake method of validating transactions in a few days.
Typing ‘’Etherum merge’’ in the Google search bar now displays a countdown clock, the hashrate, and a cartoon of two cheerful bears with open arms, approaching each other.
Analysts believe that if all goes well, both bears will merge to form a panda which will serve as a de facto mascot for Ethereum’s transition.
The doodle suggests a level of anticipation for the Merge for even the biggest tech giants.
