The graph shared by the company on Twitter simulates ETH issuance rates for two scenarios:

The current issuance of coins on two chains, PoW and PoS, and the operation of the EIP-1559 token burning mechanism, and the operation of the system after the activation of The Merge.

According to the researchers:

"With exception of Aug this year, where average gas prices are sub 20-GWEI, the simulated condition PoS chain + EIP1559 burn is net deflationary."

Experts have reminded the ETH issuance rate on Beacon Chain will increase as the number of validators increases.

They have pointed out:

"Assuming a successful Merge event, it is likely that the validator pool will increase, as investor concerns of technical risk are addressed."
