How to Setup Ethereum PoW (ETHW) on Metamask



Metamask is a custom RPC-supported wallet, and users can set up an ETHW network on metamask. ETHW has no contract address as it is a native token of a public chain, neither is it an ERC20 token. 

The Ethereum merge was a much-anticipated event in the network and the crypto space. A Terminal Total Difficulty (TTD) of 58750000000000000000000 was achieved at the ETH mainnet block height of 15,537,393, which marked the completion of the merge, 15 September 2022, 06:42:42 UTC. The ETHW network took a snapshot at the block height of 15537393 to airdrop Ethereum PoW (ETHW) to ETH holders.

Users who intend to claim or hold ETHW will have to set up an ETHW on RPC-supported wallets.
