After the successful completion of the Ethereum Merge on September 15 at 06:42:42 UTC at block height 15537394, the last proof-of-work (PoW) and first proof-of-stake (PoS) blocks dropped secret messages for all by VanityBlocks and HashKey Capital.

The last PoW block transaction, done by VanityBlocks, contained a message by American ethnobotanist and mystic Terence McKenna. 

Make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick.”

On the first PoS block, HashKey Capital left the following message:

“Powering the Next Wave of Blockchain Innovation”.
