Mining Pools Start Allowing ETHW Mining
According to their websites, mining pools F2Pool, Poolin, and Antpool have started their ETHW (EthereumPoW) mining pools, while a few other prominent mining pools have also said that they will support the mining of the fork coin.
On Thursday, F2Pool announced that the remaining hash energy in its ETH pool has been reallocated to its ETHW mining pool. Antpool, a subsidiary of Chinese mining equipment manufacturer Bitmain, has recently announced the start of its ETHW mining pool. According to its website and a sales manager, Poolin has also made its mining pool for ETHW accessible.
ETHW, whose mainnet went live on Thursday, said in a blog post on Wednesday that at least 23 mining pools will support ETHW mining.
The Ethereum network Merge was completed on Thursday, however, some miners formed ETHW to keep the prior network functioning. According to MiningPoolStats, F2Pool is the biggest ETHW mining pool by hashrate, followed by Woolypooly.com and 2miners.com.
Although Merge has been successful, the dilemma is that miners are currently struggling because they have to “stick” with ETHPoW, current users are also experiencing problems and are waiting for a fix from the developer.
