All Merge-related bounties for vulnerabilities have received a 4x multiplier between now and the 8th of September
. Critical bugs are now worth up to $1 million
If you are mining on the Ethereum mainnet, you should know that the network will operate entirely under proof-of-stake after The Merge. At that point, mining will no longer be possible on the network.
You don't have to do anything if you are an Ethereum user or ETH holder. If an application, exchange, or wallet offers additional instructions or recommendations, you should verify if those requests are real.. Be on the lookout for scams!
One more reminder from Vitalik for node operators is to update your clients before the 6th of September!
