Looks Like ETHW Is A Thing After All...

What so many believed wouldn't work is actually gaining traction...and the PoW army are rejoicing...for now.  ETHW, a non-difficulty bomb chain comparatively to the current Ethereum PoW chain, has been in the forked since August by the PoW community.  However, many predicted this endeavor would be fruitless, as there are many issues with creating a forked version that people will ACTUALLY use.  The biggest problem?  How do you maintain every single dApp on both Ethereum and ETHW?  This would require all dApp creators to manage two versions of their software, similar to software companies maintaining a version of their software for both Windows and Macs.    It's not an impossible feat, would just be really hard to manage in the current infancy of Web3.  Centralized exchanges, such as FTX and Binance, are already offering a 1:1 ETHW ratio drop for even ETH holder on their respective platforms by the drop date. I mentioned in this post my thoughts on PoW miners and them wanting to create a fork.  However, this is a perfect example of Web3 fundamentals going to work.  The will of a community is rising up to the challenge of creating a useful fork, and there's nothing wrong with that.  If they succeed, great!  If they don't, then it's a lesson we all will learn from.  Either way, Web3 freedom is a major precept and it's great seeing it in action!
