The workforce behind EthereumPoW (ETHW) unveiled plans to launch its hardfork after the highly-awaited Ethereum Merge on September 15.

“ETHW mainnet will happen within 24 hours after the Merge. The exact time will be announced 1 hour before launch with a countdown timer,” the workforce tweeted.

The last code, binaries, config information, nodes data, RPC, explorer, and so on. shall be made public when the counter timer’s up.

The mainnet will start after the Merge block plus 2,048 empty blocks, offering padding to make sure that the chainID, a singular identifier to distinguish amongst blockchains, switches successfully and that the chain is the longest chain of ETHW, in accordance to the EthereumPoW workforce.

As a outcome, the primary block on ETHW that may embrace any transactions would be the Merge block + 2049. The 1559 multi-sig pockets will obtain block rewards for the empty blocks.

The hash charge of the preliminary mining issue won’t be lower than 15 TH/s or lower than 220T.

Ethereum Classic developer Igor Artamonov criticized the thought of launching the EthereumPoW mainnet following the merge.

“Because it’s a migration from PoW to PoS, the best moment to launch ETHPOW is a few hours before The Merge. That would slow down the main chain and steals all attention at the most critical moment. E-v-e-r-y-o-n-e would talk about it. They ignore such an opportunity,” Artamonov tweeted.
