On September 15, 2022, the Ethereum blockchain underwent a significant transition from a Proof of Work (PoW) to a Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus model, marked by the Ethereum merge. While widely recognized within the cryptocurrency industry, this shift was met with opposition to the PoS method, culminating in the creation of EthereumPoW (ETHW).

The upgrade effectively rendered ETH miners obsolete, as validators now play a pivotal role by staking ETH to ensure network security. EthereumPoW, a forked version of Ethereum, emerged to cater specifically to those who continue to engage in the Proof of Work mining process for ETH.

What is EthereumPoW

In anticipation of the highly anticipated Ethereum upgrade and the subsequent hard fork, a new iteration of the Ethereum network emerged, known as EthereumPoW. Unlike a typical fork, EthereumPoW envisions a harmonious fusion of Ethereum's distinctive smart contract capabilities with the established security and decentralized attributes of the Proof of Work (PoW) consensus mechanism. At the core of this ecosystem lies ETHW, driving transactions and facilitating active engagement in network governance.

The EthereumPoW team

The EthereumPoW team comprises a group of developers and enthusiasts committed to building a decentralized, open-source, and permissionless blockchain platform. The team is led by Chandler Guo and includes Kevin Wang, David Li, and Peter Zhang. The EthereumPoW team believes Ethereum’s pre-merge blockchain is the most promising platform for housing decentralized applications (dApps)

How does EthereumPoW work

EthereumPoW operates on a Proof of Work (PoW) consensus model, where miners tackle intricate mathematical challenges to validate transactions and generate new tokens. This approach is revered for its enhanced decentralization, as it demands substantial computational power to verify and endorse transactions. Miners within the EthereumPoW network receive rewards in the form of ETHW, the native token of this chain.

Notably, EthereumPoW represents a significant divergence from Ethereum 2.0, marked by its status as a hard fork. This divergence is enduring, signifying that the two network versions operate independently due to disparities in node consensus. Consequently, the hard fork establishes an autonomous variant of ETH.

EthereumPoW’s native token: ETHW

ETHW is the native token fueling the EthereumPoW network, serving as a means of value transfer and incentivization. Operating within the EthereumPoW blockchain, it facilitates transaction validation and network security through the Proof of Work (PoW) mechanism. Beyond its foundational role, ETHW boasts utility as a versatile token, encompassing functionalities such as settling transaction fees, engaging with decentralized applications (dApps), and accessing an array of services offered within the EthereumPoW ecosystem.

ETHW tokenomics

Similar to ETH, ETHW has no maximum supply as each token is obtainable through mining, similar to PoW coins like Bitcoin and Litecoin

ETHW use cases

EthereumPoW, with its unique marriage of PoW and Ethereum's capabilities, brings a host of use cases to the table. Although they adopt different consensus mechanisms, meaning mining isn’t possible on Ethereum 2.0, ETHW has similar uses to ETH, including smart contract execution, dApp deployment, and fees for transactions. Furthermore, miners on the EthereumPoW chain are rewarded with ETHW, the native token of the EthereumPoW chain. 

Distribution of ETHW

ETHW is distributed as follows:

  • 70 percent: Distributed to ETH and WETH holders via an airdrop
  • 20 percent: Given to the EthereumPoW team and advisors
  • 10 percent: Marketing and development

The distribution of ETHW to ETH and WETH holders was done at a ratio of 1 ETH:1 ETHW. This means that for every 1 ETH held at the time of the snapshot, the holder was able to receive 1 ETHW.

EthereumPoW’s future plans

The EthereumPoW team plans to focus on two key areas: expanding the ecosystem's offerings and bolstering its network's capabilities. The team aims to enrich the EthereumPoW ecosystem by attracting developers to construct dApps and various projects on their platform.

In parallel, there's a push to enhance EthereumPoW's scalability and security. Lessons from past scalability challenges guide efforts toward building a robust, efficient network. Security, the cornerstone of any successful blockchain, is also under the microscope for continuous improvement.

ETHW FAQ

What is EthereumPoW (ETHW)? 

EthereumPoW is a unique blend of Ethereum's smart contract capabilities and the proven security of the PoW consensus mechanism. It aims to provide a platform for secure transactions, smart contract execution, and a foundation for dApps and various DeFi applications.

What Sets EthereumPoW Apart from Ethereum 2.0?

EthereumPoW is a distinct blockchain resulting from a hard fork of Ethereum 2.0. It maintains the Proof of Work (PoW) consensus mechanism, offering an alternative approach to transaction validation and network security. This divergence creates a separate and independent ecosystem where ETHW plays a central role.

Where can I buy ETHW? 

Easily buy ETHW tokens on the OKX cryptocurrency platform. Available trading pairs in the OKX spot trading terminal include ETHW/USDT and ETHW/USDC.

Alternatively, you can swap your existing cryptocurrencies, including XRP (XRP), Cardano (ADA), Solana (SOL), and Chainlink (LINK), for ETHW with zero fees and no price slippage by using OKX Convert.
