here are 8 misconceptions about "The Merge" on #Ethereum that you should know: 1. The Merge will reduce gas fees

false. The Merge changes the consensus mechanism, and does not expand network capacity

gas fees are a product of network demand relative to the capacity of the network

efforts are being focused on scaling user activity at layer 2

ZK Rollups
Optimistic Rollups
hybrid scaling solutions
stand-alone & enterprise chains

all are scaling #Ethereum

but the @0xPolygon ecosystem has, or is developing, its version of ALL these scaling solutions

and $MATIC powers these solutions

pay attention👇

1/⤵️ when users think "Polygon" they think of the Polygon POS chain

they think of Polygon as "a low-cost Ethereum-friendly alternative to Ethereum's Mainnet"

but it is much more than that

it's a toolbox of scaling solutions, and the $MATIC token powers this scaling ecosystem

“The Merge” (formerly known as ETH 2.0) WILL NOT MAKE GAS FEES LOWER. 😑

What WILL make gas fees lower:
- L2 Roll-ups (@arbitrum, @optimismPBC, etc)
- Sidechains (@0xPolygon, @avalancheavax, etc)
- Sharding (after “The Merge”)

How? Ok, here's a thread 🧵
1/ There are two types of scaling solutions:
- on-chain scaling
- off-chain scaling

You should have a good understanding of all the foundational topics.

Scaling solutions are less battle-tested, and continues to be researched and developed.

1 - Everyone’s a genius in a bull market. Real traders can survive and even thrive in bear markets or highly volatile markets.

2 - Don’t be a blind bull. ALL markets are cyclical. Don’t be afraid of pullbacks or market crashes – that’s where you can make the most money. 3 - There’s a big difference between a trade and an investment.

4 - Fully plan your trade before you pull the trigger on the entry.

5 - Entries are important, but risk & money management is where you make or lose money.
