Rally in the Price of Ravencoin (RVN).

As Ethereum prepares for “The Merge”, the event that will complete its migration to a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus, there is more attention directed toward projects like Ravencoin, Ethereum Classic, and LidoDAO. These cryptocurrencies were some of our most profitable assets.

LidoDAO allows users to use a low-cost platform with low difficulty to join the new Ethereum consensus. Ravecoin, Ethereum Classic and Ethereum Classic allow miners continue to operate. The new Ethereum PoS consensus will exclude miners with a mechanism called “Difficulty Bomb”.

Therefore, miners migrate to cryptocurrency using the Proof-of-Work(PoW) consensus which allows them stay financially profitable. In response to this, Ravencoin’s hashrate and Ethereum Classic have been rising in line with the price.

According to data provided by MinerStat, RVN’s network hashrate increased by over two-fold since early September 2022 after trending sideways across the year. As shown in the graph below, this metric is 7.5 Tera Hash per Second (TH/s). It seems that RVN price and hash rate are closely related.

Can This Ravencoin Rally Be Sustainable?

It seems natural that RVN, and other PoW cryptocurrency will gain popularity if Ethereum successfully transitions to PoS consensus. But, there will be fierce competition between the existing candidates as well as any Ethereum fork token attempting to exploit the original consensus algorithm.
