Ethereum Hard Fork Instigator Chandler Guo Claims The Value Of ETH And Forked ETHW Will Be The Same In 10 Years

Ethereum Hard Fork Instigator Chandler Guo Claims The Value Of ETH And Forked ETHW Will Be The Same In 10 Years

The U.S. dollar value of the recently airdropped coin native to the forked Ethereum proof-of-work (PoW) blockchain will be at par with that of ether, Chandler Guo, the instigator of the latest Ethereum hard fork, has said. Guo added that he expects the value of the token, which is currently “very cheap,” to grow by 100x in ten years’ time.

Surging ETHW Trade Volumes

According to Chandler Guo, the self-appointed organizer of the recent Ethereum hard fork, Ether (ETH) and the recently airdropped, proof-of-work ETHW will have the same USD value in ten years. Guo argued that the new token, which currently trades at just a fraction of its September 15 high, still has the potential to grow by 100x.

In an interview with Bitcoin.com News, Guo claimed that the current price of the forked coin is “very cheap,” hence the scope for it to grow by 100x exists. Guo, a former bitcoin and ethereum miner, nonetheless concedes that the forked blockchain has a lot of catching up to do before this hundred-fold growth is achieved. He explained:

Currently, ETH price is high because there are many developers and over 200 different projects running on top of the Ethereum PoS [proof-of-stake] blockchain. On the other hand, there are less than 10 projects on the ETHW.

Still, to prove that the work aimed at ensuring the forked chain eventually matches the PoS chain has started, Guo revealed that in just four days following the merge, “the ETH proof-of-work chain already has two DEXs [decentralized exchanges], two bridges, and two NFT [non-fungible token] exchanges already launched.”

He added: “Things are happening step-by-step and after one year I think there will be over 100 projects running on top of the PoW chain.”

Besides the launch of exchanges and bridges on the new chain, the protocol’s daily trade volume has been rising since The Merge. While the data from Coinmarketcap on September 21, 2022, suggests that the ETHW’s daily traded volume was just above $100 million, Guo however insists that the actual volume is closer to $1 billion.

“[Already] the trading volume of ETHW is huge. Today it’s almost a billion dollars. [As of today] ETHW [is] supported by more than 20 mining pools, and 2000 miners from around the world. More than 30 exchanges have listed ETHW,” claimed the former miner.

Just under a month before The Merge, Bitcoin.com News reported that a team led by Guo had confirmed that another Ethereum chain split was coming. However, as soon as the migration to PoS was concluded, two alternative chains emerged: the ETHW blockchain and Ethereumfair (ETF).

Abandoned Energy

Commenting on the other coin’s prospects, Guo, who gained prominence after he played a part in the Ethereum blockchain’s 2016 hard fork, said:

I know another team has forked ETH but nobody is mining there, nobody is listing their token. Only a few exchanges and mining pools. It [the success of a fork] all depends on who forked the ETH. I did not fork this so that I could benefit from this. But others fork for their own good or benefit. That’s why they get rich from that — I do not [do] that.

Meanwhile, prior to the Ethereum blockchain’s switch from a PoW to a PoS consensus mechanism, it was widely reported this would result in the protocol’s use of energy dropping by more than 99%. As expected, climate change advocates have applauded the September 15 Merge, which some miners now fear will embolden opponents of the PoW consensus mechanism.

When asked to respond to the argument that bitcoin mining harms the environment, the former miner outrightly rejected this assertion. He said instead of buying electricity from power companies, bitcoin miners — particularly from China — often prefer using “abandoned energy” which is cheaper.

Abandoned energy can be natural gas or hydroelectricity which is not currently being utilized, he said. According to Guo, in regions like Kazakhstan and Russia where miners are harnessing such energy to mine bitcoin, local communities have benefited.

Meanwhile, concerning reports that the Ethereum Merge may have given the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) grounds to launch or institute some kind of proceedings against the blockchain’s co-founders, Guo remarked:

“I think Vitalik [Buterin] and the boss behind him, his name is Joseph Lubin. This guy knows how to fix this problem because he has got links with Wall Street. He knows how to deal with the SEC.”

Head of Marketing for Immutable Studios spoke to CryptoSlate to talk about Guild of Guardians and Immutable’s vision for web3 games.

Following the emerging trend within web3 gaming, Guild of Guardians looks to promote the concept of “play-and-earn” instead of play-to-earn. The game, from the team behind Gods Unchained, Immutable Studios, focuses on digital asset ownership as a byproduct of engaging game design and replayability.

Guild of Guardians elite talent

CryptoSlate spoke with Sangita Sarkar, Head of Marketing at Immutable Studios, about the upcoming release of Guild of Guardians and the future of web3 gaming. Sarkar is a rockstar in the mobile gaming space, where she has worked on AAA titles such as Words With Friends, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, and Deer Hunter.

Sarkar told CryptoSlate that she thrives when working on the “cutting edge of gaming.” Having ridden both the Facebook and mobile gaming waves at times when their popularity was in its infancy, Sarkar sees the next big moment in gaming to be the official arrival of web3.

Speaking to Sarkar, it is clear that games are her passion as she relayed that she has been a PC gamer since the days of playing the original “Doom and Quake” games at the age of 7. Further, she would unlikely struggle to find a role in any significant gaming studio with a proven track record across a wealth of gaming platforms and genres. This is a testament to the attractiveness of the web3 space and another example of elite talent leaving web2 for blockchain-related projects.

The fall and rise of web3 gaming

Guild of Guardians utilizes NFTs to reward users and allow players to own in-game assets. Sarkar spoke of the “countless hours and dollars” sunk into traditional games to obtain in-game items without any actual ownership model. Items in web2 belong to either the developer or publisher of the game, and the players have no say in what they can do with their in-game assets.

Sarkar saliently identified that many web3 games in the past have “focused too much on the investment aspect of games” built on blockchain technology. Gamers are not investors; they are a set of people seeking entertainment and escapism through technology that tells a story.

Transforming entertainment media into an investment vehicle and expecting gamers to buy into the concept shows an apparent lack of understanding of the value proposition of web3.

Conversely, Sarkar explained that she believes Guild of Guardians is taking web3 gaming in a direction that will attract players from both web2 and web3.

When asked why she believed blockchain had become a ‘dirty’ word within the gaming space, Sarkar pointed out that any trepidation of web2 gamers moving into web3 less to do with an innate hatred of blockchain and is more likely the result of a lack of understanding mixed with the fear of losing money.

Sarkar does not believe that traditional gamers have been put off of blockchain technology due to any specific mistakes made by the industry. Instead, she stated that improved education and quality gameplay are all required to bring the dawn of web3 gaming.

Still, when pressed on the matter, Sarkar did admit that developers who overpromised on what could be delivered and then released tokens without a product may have caused some gamers to lose faith in web3.

In contrast to these early web3 games, Sarkar stated that Guild of Guardians has real alpha testers currently playing a build of the game and giving feedback to ready the game for launch next year.

Guild of Guardians release

When asked when the game would be available to the public, Sarkar stated that there would be an announcement soon but to expect a release sometime early in 2023.

While Sarkar spoke clearly on the game’s focus on gameplay, the Immutable X website does not shy away from promoting Guild of Guardians as a way to profit.

“Guild of Guardians is a mobile RPG that allows gamers to earn substantial profits through their passion for gaming. This online fantasy action role-playing game, lets players build their own dream team of Guardians to compete in guilds for tradeable rewards”

In the meantime, watch out for a gameplay reveal on the CryptoSlate YouTube channel and Lens in the coming weeks.
