Ethereum's big shift to proof-of-stake - Why it's taking so long

Like Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies, Ethereum saw a large spike in adoption in recent years, mostly driven by eager investors.

Both cryptocurrencies are based on blockchain technology, but Ethereum's underlying vision is to build a decentralised virtual computer rather than a currency.
