It is my understanding during a hard fork you are able to claim the coins on both chains, is this the case with the POW to POS transition?Any insight would be appreciated.

And yes, you can claim coins from the original chain. They’re called ETHW but they’re worth very little, so most people don’t bother: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ethereum-pow/ Wednesday, November 30th, 2022 at 17:59 #414393 EvanVanNessyesAuthorPostsViewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total)You must be logged in to reply to this topic.Log In Username: Password: Keep me signed in Register Log In Related Forum Topics: → Will there be an impact on Cardano after a successful merge of Ethereum PoW/PoS merge?
