The Merge is a reality now, and everyone is asking the same 2 questions. Will ETH pump or dump? What other coins will pump post Merge?
Well, if you have questions related to the Ethereum Merge, I have the answers.
1) Will ETH Pump or Dump After the Ethereum Merge?
To answer the first question, what will ETH do, no one knows the future including me. But here’s what I do know:
- More ETH is moving to exchanges: This usually happens when people are ready to sell
- People are considering The Merge a ‘buy the rumor, sell the news event. This means everyone thinks when The Merge finally happens they will sell. This will likely become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
2) What Should YOU Do to Prep for Ethereum Merge?
If they sell the news, that means I expect an immediate short-term dip. Then, some top coins will benefit from The Merge. But, before I tell you what the coins are why they are a good buy Post merge, the first thing you need to do is have stablecoins on hand and ready so you can buy this dip.
But what should you buy? If your primary reasons for holding ETH haven’t changed post Merge, then you can look to buy more ETH. Now if you want, stay tuned for my exact picks for who benefits most post Merge.
So, here are the top crypto coins set to explode after the Ethereum Merge:
Polygon, the undisputed Layer 2 leader will be the first one to benefit from The Merge. That’s because of a very common misconception about Merge. Many believe that, with The Merge, ETH will scale drastically to 100K TPS.
🤔 Everyone is talking about The Merge and praying for it to succeed, so what is Ethereum The Merge?

However, the truth of ETH’s goal of scalability is that MERGE is just the beginning. To scale up to 100K TPS, ETH has to undergo 4 more development phases. But with Merge, Polygon’s scaling solutions will become even more eco-friendly and scalable. This could increase the institutional interest in Polygon which is already high.
Number 2 on the list is Arbitrum One. But wait Arbitrum doesn’t have a coin, right Arbitrum is planning an airdrop soon and could become the biggest gainer post Merge. So, if you want to know how you can get the Arbitrum airdrops and some of the biggest airdrops of 2022, subscribe to our channel now as in the next 1-2 days we will publish a full airdrop walk-through video.
🚀 @arbitrum mainnet migration of Arbitrum One to Nitro is less than one week away, and its daily transactions have surged past 180,000 again!

Coming back to Arbitrum. It is another Layer 2 that has witnessed explosive ecosystem growth in the last couple of months. Then, there is the most recent Nitro upgrade that went out on Aug 31 and has already led to a 7x increase in Arbitrum One’s throughput capacity. This means 20% more average daily transactions.
c) Optimism (OP)
Number 3 on our list is another Layer 2 Optimism. When post Merge the increase in speed and transaction finality does NOT happen, those who tried ETH will move to the Layer 2s. They will grow. Optimism has a token already. It’s OP.
So. when people get more realistic in their expectations for The Merge, all 3 of these Layer 2s will grow even faster.
The Merge is almost here, marking a historic milestone for the entire Ethereum ecosystem! 🐼
We couldn't be more excited for this monumental occasion. As it approaches, we'd like to address a few questions surrounding the Merge as it relates to Optimism.

d) Algorand (ALGO)
Then I have the alt Layer 1s. Some of the so-called Ethereum killers. The truth is they are no closer to solving the blockchain trilemma of decentralization, scale, and security than ETH is. Which is to say none of them are that close. But, some are in a unique position to benefit from The Merge. So, the number 4 on my list is Algorand.
Now let’s see why I think it will pump. Algorand is marketing heavily in 2 areas: FIFA and CBDCs. Both are a big deal. The World Cup in Qatar in a couple of months will shine the spotlight on Algorand. And for CBDCs, every day more and more governments are exploring issuing one. ALGO is at the forefront of helping governments issue CBDCs.

e) Solana (SOL)
Solana is going hard at ETH in the NFT market. Magic Eden is becoming a big player as an NFT marketplace and is a serious competitor to OpenSea.

f) Cosmos (ATOM)
Cosmos is simply the most developed ecosystem in crypto. So, EVMOS and Kava both allow for EVM assets to trade on the Cosmos chain. And although many call it Layer 0 and not Layer 1, the internet of blockchains that is Cosmos should continue to grow and strengthen post Merge.
— Cosmos – Internet of Blockchains ⚛️ (@cosmos) September 9, 2022
The last coin on my list is BNB. BNB is home to the world’s biggest exchange and the BNB Smart Chain is one of the top 2 or 3, along with Cosmos and ETH, for the most developed ecosystem.
— Binance (@binance) September 15, 2022
Their BNB Smart Chain is fully EVM compatible and their path for growth remains strong. So what are you doing? Are buying these alt Layer 1s and Layer 2s into and after The Merge? Let me know in the comments below
