After many debates and EIPs, Ethereum's Vitalik Buterin and Vlad Zamfir have finally proposed a transition to Proof-of-Stake algorithm, which will be self-sustained after August 15th, 2018.

During the transition period, Ethereum will run on a hybrid PoW/PoS algorithm, allowing both miners and stakers to validate transactions and earn Ether. After August 15th, PoW will no longer be sustained and all blocks will be generated by the PoS mechanism.
As the PoS mechanism is still in transition mode, staking is reserved for registered addresses, until further development and release of GUI wallets (Q3 2018).

In cooperation with MyEtherWallet - the open source web wallet for the Ethereum blockchain, we are able to allow Ether holders to stake their ETH and earn dividends on a weekly basis. Weighted Ether can be staked for up to 10% ROI, until further implementations on the PoS algorithm.

When I visited Ethereum.com, this is what I got (see screenshot below) with a note that it has no relation to the blockchain technology. I think it's different from your Reference link.  ??? :-\

When opening your Reference Link, I got:

Anyway, I've reported the link in Google Safebrowsing (https://safebrowsing.google.com/safebrowsing/report_phish/) and EtherAddressLookup (https://etherscamdb.info/report/domain/)
