Ether Either iEther Or
Your choice in adopting iEthereum
Eeny Meeny Miny Moe. What am I talking about? I am speaking about the choice one has in adopting iEthereum.
iEthereum contract 0x859a9C0b44cb7066D956a958B0b82e54C9e44b4B is an ERC20 token. Therefore everytime the Ethereum network forks, holders of iEthereum at time of the fork will receive a copy of their iEthereum onto the added forks network.
The dependent value of that iEthereum specific split will depend on the value of the new forks network independently in the future. The value is dependent on the market usage of the specific EVM chain.
Currently, iEthereum resides on 4 chains; ie Ethereum, Ethereum POW, Ethereum Fair, and Pulsechain.
So Either Ether iEther Or. The code is the same but you, the client, the end user may have a preference on your chosen network. The network you choose may have benefits or features for certain tasks over another network. I have never understood the maximalist mindset when it comes to the early adoptive game of crypto.
For instance, if I were a government, I may like Bitcoin for slow and safe transactions for large trade settlements verses a need for fast and less safe transactions buying a coffee.
Ethereum Fair and Ethereum POW are two recent forks of Ethereum that split at the time of the Ethereum upgrade to Proof of Stake back in September of 2022. Ethereum Fair and Ethereum POW remain Proof of Work consensus models. Therefore, your forked copies of iEthereum reside on each of these networks while leveraging risk with both proof of work consensus. This is a valuable value proposition for competitive differientation.
For example, just a sidenote. It is my opinion Apples heavily invested into the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). With my presumption it is safe to say Apple was heavily invested in Ethereum Classic and therefore holds large amounts of ETC, ETH, ETHW, ETHF and Pulsechain to date. And with such, I would imagine Apple is helping develop out the larger macro Ethereum ecosystem. Again, my opinion; they would be savvy incorporating a Proof Of Work consensus Ethereum, such as Ethereum Fair or Ethereum POW into their hardware devices for Apple users of phones, watches, glasses, pads and desktop computers to be mining on their own devices. A truly decentralized ecosystem. Pretty cool.
However, Proof of Stake has a lot of value in other ways. If you like iEthereum leveraging risk with a Proof of Stake consensus; the original iEthereum and Pulsechain iEthereum are your current options.
You can purchase the original iEthereum on the centralized exchange Yobit. Or the decentralized Coinbase Wallet or Uniswap dex.
To purchase iEthereum on Ethereum Fair, Ethereum POW or Pulsechain networks at this time; you will have to do your own research. We will post how to articles at later dates.
