ETHW Hikes as Binance Introduces the Ethereum PoW Mining Pool

The merge updated Ethereum’s network from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake mechanism, which is considered more scalable and more eco-friendly. On the other hand, ETHW is the forked version of Ethereum that will continue use the original mechanism Proof-of-Work. The PoS supporters (ETH) often criticize PoW about its massive energy consumption from mining.
