ETH coin stakers will not be able to withdraw their tokens for 6 months to 12 months after Merge. ETH token stakers will have to wait for the Shanghai Upgrade, allowing up to 40,000 ETH tokens to be withdrawn daily.
Similarly, the Merge does not intend to affect the ecosystem’s gas fees. Ethereum token holders will not experience a reduction in gas fees since the Merge does not expand the network’s capacity.
