Binance Starts Ethereum Proof-of-Work Mining Pool, Initially With No Fee
ETHW initially stumbled, but mining support from Binance customers could in theory help.
Participants in the ETHW Pool will not be charged a fee during a promotional period that ends Oct. 29, according to a statement Thursday.
Two weeks ago, the Ethereum Merge successfully shifted the blockchain to a proof-of-stake system, eliminating the need for crypto miners on the network. A new, forked version of Ethereum still powered by PoW was created, though it got off to a rocky start. Support from customers of Binance, a giant in crypto trading, could in theory help sustain the forked version.1
