After Ethereum’s successful completion of its hard fork upgrade The Merge, it is now time to look at the forked tokens. Crypto exchange Poloniex, which was quite active in supporting the possibility of forked tokens after the upgrade, came up with an announcement. The exchange said it decided to choose the fork chain EthereumFair (ETF) ‘which is supported by the community’s majority’. Not just the support but ETF has more proof of work computing power as the main chain for ETHW tokens, it said.

However, Poloniex will support the other fork chains and tokens as well, going on the merits of those tokens. Hence, the token announced earlier as the potential forked token, ETHW, will be renamed. ETHW was originally named after Ethereum’s now defunct consensus, proof of work (POW). The ETHW token will be renamed as ETF, it stated in the announcement.

“Poloniex will rename ETHW as EthereumFair (ETF) and resume the trading of ETF markets (ETF/USDT, ETF/USDD, ETF/ETH) on September 15. The trading history of ETHW markets will be inherited by the corresponding ETF markets.”

Meanwhile, Poloniex said it will also list other valid Ethereum fork tokens for trading in coming days. “The ETF token is yet to be enabled for deposit or withdrawal.”
