The success of Ethereum's Sepolia Testnet Merge, ETH Rises 5%, Goerli Next

The Merge, an effort by Ethereum developers to transition the Ethereum network to a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) network, was completed successfully on Wednesday, July 6.
 Investors in Ether (ETH) were encouraged by the news as the price of ETH has increased by 5% in the last day to trade at $1,170. The second-largest cryptocurrency in the world experienced significant selling pressure earlier this week.
However, this encouraging development is undoubtedly rekindling investor optimism. Sepolia's proof-of-work chain, also known as the execution layer, and the proof-of-stake beacon chain, also known as the consensus layer, combined during yesterday's event.
Anthony Sassano, an Ethereum expert, attested to The Merge's success on the Sepolia testnet. It also opens the door for The Merge to be implemented on the Goerli testnet, he continued.
There is no lag in the mainnet merge
Past partial delays in the development of Ethereum 2.0's switch to a Proof-of-Stake mechanism. The transfer to the Ethereum mainnet is currently anticipated to take place by the end of the year.
There have been some issues even with The Sepolia testnet Merge. Terence Tsao, the creator of the Ethereum protocol, still hailed the Merge as a success. He continued by saying that following the Merge, 25–30% of validators fell offline due to "bad configs". He later described them as minor "hiccups" that won't cause the mainnet Merge to be delayed any more.
These testnet Merges essentially act as a "dress rehearsal," giving Ethereum developers a good sense of the difficulties to be encountered during the mainnet Merge. Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, brought up certain issues with the main network Merge during yesterday's live stream.
For instance, infrastructure from third parties that is now unavailable on the testnets will be included in the mainnet Merge. Therefore, non-critical bugs like that can just surface in the Merge that we aren't capturing with our tests, Buterin said. Many peripherals are just not being tested, which is inevitable and probably okay.
