Chinese Miner Claims an Ethereum PoW Fork Is ‘Coming Soon,’ Despite ETC’s Existence

According to Chandler Guo, an influential Chinese bitcoin miner, a proof-of-work (PoW) version of Ethereum is “coming soon.” The news comes as The Merge is expected to be implemented on Ethereum during the week of September 19, and the growing discussions of delaying the highly anticipated proof-of-stake (PoS) transition.


ETC has seen support from various parts of the ecosystem and Grayscale launched an ETC trust in January 2017. Ethereum Classic has a much lower hashrate than Ethereum today and ETC has suffered from a 51% attack in the past. In fact, ETC has been 51% attacked on numerous occasions and faced delisting from several exchanges in January 2019 and August 2020.
