Ethereum Fork EthereumPOW Announces Post-Merge Launch Plans


EthereumPoW, a proof-of-work splinter from the Ethereum Blockchain, has announced plans to launch a hardfork soon after the Ethereum Merge on September 15th. On Twitter, @EthereumPoW announced "ETHW mainnet will happen within 24 hours after the merge." For those unaware, Ethereum's merge to poof-of-stake is causing a rift in the broader Ethereum community. In fact, Multiple exchanges have already shown interest in the forked ETHW. To prevent duplicate blocks on both ETH and ETHW, the mainnet of ETHW will use padding to ensure a unique chainID is present. Despite any added support, however, critics of ETHW have questioned the motives of the hardfork.
