  • Investors are getting excited over the launch of the proof-of-stake network, which replaces the proof-of-work system.
  • Ethereum network users have now staked at least 6.1 million Ether, up from 5.3 million last month
  • Ether investors under a proof-of-stake system will be able to validate transactions and earn more tokens on the network after staking coins as down payment.
