Community celebrates the merger by dropping ETH-inspired art and music


When the merger successfully moved the Ethereum network to proof-of-stake (PoS), the Ethereum community seized the opportunity to celebrate by dropping artwork and music inspired by Ethereum.

Nonfungible token (NFT) artist Beeple, the creator of one of the most expensive NFTs ever sold, celebrated the Ethereum Merge by releasing an illustration showing a massive Ethereum logo that appeared to form say slowly, assisted by what look like scientists.

Another member of the community, who creates art influenced by street art and illustration, dropped a moving artwork that shows a static visual effect over a pair of Ether (ETH) logos. To add a sense of celebration to the artwork, the creator wrote a description that said, “the time has come.”

Meanwhile, an NFT compilation called I Survived the Merge featured cute kids saying funny words like “The merge was my idea” or “Merge Deez.” Earlier this month, the ETH Pandas collection dropped NFTs of various artwork featuring the animal the community chose to represent the fusion – the Panda.

Artwork aside, one community member decided to add nostalgia to the mix by making a music video for a Merge-inspired song. Musician Jonathan Mann narrated highlights of Ethereum’s history through a song. With lyrics like “though the road was long, we continued” and “carbon footprint is all gone”, Mann celebrated the merger with his musical prowess.

Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum, tweeted a message to thank everyone who helped make the merge happen. Greeting the community, Buterin highlighted that the merger is a huge moment for the Ethereum ecosystem and said that the community should feel proud on this day.

Back in June, community members also hyped Ropsten’s testnet merger, which was a prerequisite for the actual merger that happened today. At the time, Mann also released a song expressing his joy with lyrics such as “ETH to the moon!”
