As the crypto ecosystem braces for the much anticipated Ethereum Merge, the developers are focused on educating the community. Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin is set to release a book on his writings over the years about the making of the blockchain network. The book titled “Proof of Stake” comes with a tag line, “The making of Ethereum and the Philosophy of Blockchain.” While the community awaits Ethereum’s transition to proof of stake, the book could not have come at a better time.
Proof of Stake
Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin in his tweet, revealed that he is set to release a book titled “Proof of Stake,” which compiles essays he has written in the last ten years, noting that buyers can purchase a signed digital copy and NFT version of the book, with his share of the proceeds going to fund public goods on Gitcoin.
“‘Proof of Stake’, the (physical and digital) book compiling various writings I’ve made over the last ~10 years, will be out in a month!

As highlighted by software developer and Gitcoin founder Kevin Owocki, it is the first time an ebook is signed by an author’s public Ethereum keys and issued as an NFT.The writings would reveal Buterin to be “a vivid and imaginative writer,” Gitcoindescribed.
The book is set for release on September 27, within two weeks after the scheduled timeline for the Ethereum Merge. The Merge will see the network migrate from the proof-of-work (PoW) consensus model to proof-of-stake (PoS) after nearly a decade of planning and anticipation. Notably, the move will significantly cut down the network’s carbon footprint.
