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

As the Merge successfully shifted the Ethereum network to proof-of-stake (PoS), the Ethereum community seized the opportunity to celebrate by dropping artworks 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 publishing an illustration that shows a massive Ethereum logo that seemed to slowly form, assisted by what looks like scientists.

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

Meanwhile, an NFT collection dubbed I Survived the Merge featured cute saplings saying funny words like “the Merge was my idea” or “Merge Deez.” Earlier this month, the ETH Pandas collection dropped NFTs of various artworks featuring the animal that the community chose to represent the Merge — the Panda.

Apart from artworks, a community member decided to add nostalgia into the mix by creating a music video for a Merge-inspired song. Musician Jonathan Mann told highlights of the history of Ethereum through a song. With lyrics like “though the road was long, we carried on” and “carbon footprint is all gone,” Mann celebrated the Merge with his musical prowess.

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

Back in June, community members also hyped the Ropsten testnet merge that was a prerequisite to the actual Merge that happened today. At that time, Mann also published a song expressing his joy with lyrics like “ETH to the moon!”
