According to details about the Merge, the transition from Proof-of-Work (PoW) to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism is a manifestation of the merger between Ethereum’s mainnet and the Beacon chain PoS system.
Ethereum’s website notes that by transitioning to the PoS model, the network has reduced its energy consumption by approximately 99.95% overnight. The change would significantly affect Ethereum and the entire cryptocurrency industry, including NFTs and the following web cycle. Henceforth, there would be no more miners, high-powered computers, and ETH mining farms.
Celebrate Ethereum’s Merge success with “Proof of Steak.”
The 99.95% discount offered by Chipotle is equal to the projected overall energy savings achieved post Merge with Ethereum’s transition to proof-of-stake consensus. According to the announcement, the offer is only valid between Tuesday, September 27, and Tuesday, October 4, at any Chipotle outlet in the U.S. Chipotle has also Tweeted a paragraph from Flexa’s medium post, which read:
“After the Merge, Ethereum now uses 99.95% less energy. Celebrate with 99.95% off the NEW Garlic Guajillo Steak at Chipotle when you spend ETH using Flexa.”
The collaboration and savings offer underscores Chipotle’s commitment to fostering a better world. As part of this effort, the restaurant chain sources meat from farms that treat their animals humanely while upholding environmental friendliness in their farming endeavors.
With terms and conditions applying, Chipotle calls upon every Mexican food enthusiast to take advantage of this special deal by using a Flexa-supported app to pay with ETH at any outlet in the U.S. before October 4, while supplies last.
Customers who do not have a Flexa-enabled app can download SPEDN and make some ETH deposit to kick-start their experience with Flexa’s instant digital currency payments at Chipotle.
According to the promotion terms, customers must use the Flexa payment method and Ether (ETH) as a currency to enjoy the discount. In addition, the offer excludes online or in-app purchases and is limited to one acceptable transaction for every Flexa account. This translates to a maximum value of $20 per purchase. The terms also underscore that the offer cannot be stacked with any other offers or discounts the restaurant provides.
Chipotle started accepting digital currency payments on June 1, 2022, with Flexa benefitting from exclusive rights. With this debut, customers can spend their crypto, including Bitcoin (BTC) and other digital currencies, from any Flexa-supported app.
