Talking in a closed press convention throughout South Korea Blockchain Week, Ethereum founder, Vitalik Buterin, referred to as folks pushing for a tough fork of Ethereum to retain proof-of-stake “merely making an attempt to make a fast buck.”
Justin Solar not too long ago introduced help for a tough fork of Ethereum post-merge by itemizing two new tokens on his Poloniex trade. The tokens will probably be named ETHS and ETHW, associated to proof-of-stake and proof-of-work, respectively. ETHW will symbolize a newly created exhausting fork of Ethereum the place GPU miners proceed to mine Ethereum after the merge of the Beacon chain. Some Chinese language miners have reportedly signed as much as be part of this new chain together with Justin Solar.
Additional, Solar is seeking to incentivize a transfer to fork Ethereum to retain a model of the present community inside a proof-of-work chain. He’s providing as much as 1 million ETHW to construct a developer group ought to the chain develop into realized.
We at present have greater than 1 million #ETH. If #Ethereum exhausting fork succeeds, we’ll donate some forked #ETHW to #ETHW group and builders to construct #ethereum ecosystem. https://t.co/ee4kGSuVoK

Vitalik said that he has seen nothing however help for proof-of-stake from throughout the group and famous that most individuals who need to retain proof-of-stake are “outsiders” from the Ethereum ecosystem.
Justin Solar, the founding father of the Tron blockchain, is undoubtedly an outsider to the Ethereum ecosystem by many accounts. Vitalik additionally referenced that proponents of a tough fork “personal exchanges and are simply making an attempt to make a fast buck.”
Talking on a query as as to if a tough fork might trigger points with NFTs residing on each forked chains, Vitalik replied, “I foresee market confusion if that proof-of-work exhausting fork turns into one thing substantial.”
Nonetheless, Vitalik rapidly put the onus on the proof-of-work chain as a substitute of accepting that this might trigger points with what many will contemplate “mainnet.” Ought to a fork acquire traction, Vitalik expressed, “I’m certain there’s going to be issues… in the event that they need to make a fork, it’s on them to mitigate these issues.”
