The price stability that prevailed after Ethereum's historic shift to a more energy-efficient "proof-of-stake" network has suddenly evaporated. After a plunge in the past couple hours, ether (ETH) was down 9.1%, its worst day since late August.

Ethereum’s long-awaited transition from a proof-of-work to proof-of-stake-based consensus system is just over the horizon, and the anticipation has created a bullish narrative for the smart-contract platform.

There are some rational arguments for a continued ETH PoW chain, and it would certainly be a fascinating experiment if it goes forward.
