Persons have been calling for this change (PoW to PoS) because the present protocol consumes a lot of energy, which harms the environment. But several Bitcoin supporters still prefer the Proof of Work protocol as they claim that there is no way to secure the blockchain cheaper, save for concealing the costs. They anticipate that PoS will dry up liquidity in order to stake, which will result in the same economic waste.
On this basis, I don't think that the PoS protocol will be applied by Bitcoin miners anytime soon.
