Specifically: “They don’t have any intention to fork for ProgPoW cause they don’t want to take a risk for creating a new classic chain created by ASIC miners.” So apparently now they’re creating a classic ProgPoW chain. We can see above this persona posted the ProgPoW FAQ by another anonymous individual called “IfDefElse.” So suggesting that Ikmyeong is an integral part of the ProgPoW team and rather than this being one individual it may be that the ProgPoW team is using the chain-split as some sort of tactic. An anonymous individual going by the name of “Ikmyeong Na,” who says he is a ProgPoW developer and worked on it for months, has stated an Ethereum ProgPoW node has been launched with the aim of chain-spliting ethereum before or at the time of Constantinople in three days. The implementation of ProgPoW has become controversial after some suggested the team behind it has a relationship with Nvidia. Constantinople, in addition, has a number of other nice featured coded over many months by eth devs.

“Ethereum ProgPoW project started to create an alternative ethereum node with native ProgPoW adoption, based on Geth, the most famous ethereum client and the work base from Holiman from ethereum foundation.”

He further says “I started to create a codebase of Ethereum ProgPoW since last October,” and “we’ve excluded Constantinople support from the codebase.”

That means this new coin would have higher inflation if it gains any traction as they’re apparently keeping the three eth per block reward despite ethereum reaching...
