On September 14, the CTO of Tether and Bitfinex, Paolo Ardoino, said that Ethereum still doesn’t match Bitcoin because its narrative keeps shifting. He argued that while Bitcoin is a form of money, Ethereum is stuck between claims of being a form of money and claims of being a platform, but ETH cannot compete with Bitcoin on the money front because there is no fixed supply. 

Skeptical about the change, Ardoino said that the Merge will not fix transaction fees or make Ethereum any more decentralized. He added that The Merge won’t impact the ecosystem’s Layer 2 solutions either as it doesn’t directly solve Ethereum’s scalability issues.
