Now that the Merge is done and dusted, what will happen to Ethereum in the face of a worsening economic climate?

Despite the choppy price action leading up to the Merge, the actual event went off without a hitch, with the network successfully reaching finality after 12 minutes. Yet, as Ethereans the world over began to rejoice over the most significant crypto event of 2022, Ethereum’s rollercoaster ride has just begun.
