What is ETHPOW (ETHW)?
In the last month or two Ethereum Merge news was all over the news and internet and the merge was scheduled to happen on 16 September and it did successfully. With this merge, Ethereum has shifted from its old Proof of Work blockchain to a new Proof of stake blockchain. There were various reasons to do this but the biggest reasons were to secure the blockchain even more and cut down the electricity consumption which was huge due to the mining process.
But merge was not the only thing that happened, a hard fork of Ethereum happened which created the ETHW cryptocurrency. This is based on the proof of work blockchain and will work there whereas the ETH will be working on Proof of stake (as the merge is completed). There were some speculations that a hard fork might happen because a lot of users do not want to let go of the mining process but it was just a rumor and no official statement was given by the Ethereum team for the planning of this Hardfork.
At the moment ETHPOW is being traded at the price ₹715.68 on the coinmarketcap but there’s no information related to the total supply, there are not even details of the person who did the hard fork.
