Post the successful completion of the Merge and the subsequent hard forks in the altcoin, there is a decline in the forked coins, ETHW yielded double-digit losses overnight. 

According to Chandler Guo, the self-appointed organizer of the recent Ethereum hard fork,proof-of-work ETHW will have the same USD value as Ethereum in ten years. Guo argued that the new token, which currently trades 80% below its all-time high of $58.54, has the potential to grow by 100x.

Guo told Bitcoin.News in an interview that the current price of the forked coin is “very cheap,” hence the scope for it to grow by 100x exists. Guo 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.
