The Ethereum merge was completed successfully! After years of planning, the vast Ethereum ecosystem has moved to proof-of-stake, ushering in a new era for digital assets
There is no direct action you need to take. Your assets on Stablehouse are safe and your current ETH balance will continue to be visible as ETH.
What about forked ETH? Stablehouse will subject any newly forked token(s) to the same strict review process that we follow before making any token available for trading. Though it is not guaranteed that any such tokens will be made available for trading, if it is supported by exchanges and economically viable, we will consider listing it.
All ETH deposited on Stablehouse and all ETH received as loan collateral remains safe and will transition to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) Ethereum.
A small portion of the Ethereum community is planning to support the older Proof-of-Work (PoW) alternative, and we are tracking this development closely. We are currently not planning to support the PoW asset when the merge happens. That said, we will consider listing it if it makes economic sense for all of us.
