Ethereum’s first fork discusses Dogecoin fork, proposes new mining algorithm
EthereumFair is a fork chain led by a group of technologists that insists on maintaining ETH’s Proof-of-Work consensus mechanism. This group established a new hub for ETH miners and ecological projects while providing them with security and 100% decentralization.
Today, we have discussed the dogecoin fork with the #dogecoin community. The #ETHF technical community will help #Dogecoin fork.— EthereumFair($ETHF) #PeoplePOW (@EthereumFair) February 4, 2023
The EthereumFair team discussed the fork and offered technical help to the Dogecoin community. A Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) will be established where technologists, communities, project parties, exchanges, and miners are welcome to participate actively.
This is a worldwide linkage and a major reshuffle of liquidity. Dogecoin retains its Proof-of-Work consensus mechanism, and the mining algorithm will be separated from Wright to use the Ethereum graphics card mining machine.
A larger consensus group will be generated; Dogecoin will be compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), a trend, and the DAO will ensure the decentralization of the project.
The team announced that the Dogecoin fork will still retain the 1:1 ledger, but there will be some detailed adjustments from the Bitcoin series algorithm to the Ethereum series algorithm.

The news of the fork that retains DOGE’s consensus mechanism and its popularity among whales could act as bullish catalysts for the meme coin. While competitor Shiba Inu bucks the large crypto market downtrend and yields double-digit gains, Dogecoin is gearing up to make a comeback with interest from whales and the Ethereum fork’s community.
