On September 15th, 2022, a fork of Ethereum that retained proof-of-work (PoW) was executed. This marked the completion of Ethereum’s transition to proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus, officially deprecating PoW and significantly reducing energy consumption by approximately 99.95%. The merge involved combining the original execution layer of Ethereum with its new PoS consensus layer, the Beacon Chain, making mining unnecessary and instead enabling the network to be secured through staked ETH. This milestone was a significant step forward for Ethereum, bringing more scalability, security, and sustainability to the platform. With the EthereumPoW Hard Fork, any wallet address that held ETH tokens on the ERC20 mainnet prior to the snapshot will now hold the equivalent number of ETHF tokens on the EthereumPoW mainnet.
