What is stopping Ethereum miners from pumping ETC with their ETH before the merge so they can continue to use their hardware?
It would have to be a group effort with every miner doing it and i dont think the company’s mining ETH will do that lol
It is a good question though and i have wondered that myself
Im honestly not up on the Eth mining scene. I’m just wondering what are they going to do with the hardware and infrastructure as there’s no one to sell it to. And at the price point of ETC and other minable coins they’d take a huge loss as the sale price would have to match ROI expectations.
interesting to think about, but only time will tell I guess.
which, that is, even if the merge does in fact happen this time haha.
haha yeah it might not even happen lol but if it does i think alot of miners will just wait for the next profitable coin. but thats just what im thinking im not even mining ETH (4gb card) so im not really with all that either but for me, im just gonna keep stacking RVN
It will depend on what they can do profitably plain and simple most of the ASIC miners are part of large business mining farms.
