Messari analyst Dunleavy said in a tweet that nothing has changed about ETC. Volumes and users have been largely unchanged for years. Applications are non-existent. Developer activity has not meaningful changed. 97% of GPU mining rev comes from Eth. 2% comes from ETC. Daily rwd for ETC is ~700k vs 24m for Eth. If miners end up migrating to ETC, hashrate will jump causing the mining diff to jump, pushing a maj of miners out of the $. The only way to remain profitable is if ETC price jumps.

National Power Administration of Paraguay is proposing a new way of charging cryptocurrency companies for the electricity used in mining operations in Paraguay. The company has brought a new decree proposal to the national economic team that would collect the payments for these services in advance in U.S. dollars, and with an annual adjustment. This proposal would also create a new billing group for these activities.
The head of the East Regional Management Division, Alfredo Argüello, stated that while inspecting different cryptocurrency mining operations, the group was able to detect irregularities in some of them that led to the loss of more than $400,000 monthly. Some of these irregularities included direct connections, bypass connections, and modified power meters, Argüello informed.
As a result of this, the company is stopping the power supply to these companies until a new power billing structure is approved for these entities, an issue that’s already being discussed in the Paraguayan senate.
In previous news, the Paraguayan Senate has passed a cryptocurrency bill that still needs to be approved by the President. The bill will allow crypto miners to use the excess energy generated at competitive prices and crypto companies operating in Paraguay will be exempt from VAT.
In addition, cryptocurrency trading platforms will be recognised as regulated entities and will need to be registered as virtual asset providers with the Paraguayan Anti-Money Laundering Secretariat (SEPRELAD).（Bitcoin.com）
White Rock Management CEO Andy Long believes bear markets “present excellent opportunities” for expansion via mergers and acquisitions in the crypto mining sector.
The crypto mining company CEO noted that companies who have managed their balance sheets effectively are in “great shape” during this bear market, and will continue to do well even if there’s more volatility to come.
“The bear market has presented challenges for the miners who leveraged up at the top of the market, however, the sector has been here before, and well capitalized and efficient miners will do just fine,” he said.
Long suggested that the current bear trend will provide key merger and acquisition opportunities for such companies, as they will have proven to investors that they can survive extreme market conditions（Cointelegraph）

Hasu, head of Strategy at Flashbots, said in response to the ETH PoW fork. Many, including him, have predicted for years that miners would fork ethereum to extract the final juice out of their investment. it doesn’t take nostradamus to see this. A lot of hashpower does not give this chain any significant value. The chance that a major stablecoin will honor redemptions on this fork over eth2 is not 5%, its not 1%, it’s a cold zero. Anyone who says otherwise is a grifter.
If anything goes wrong with the merge, it just gets delayed until the problems are fixed and then the merge happens a few weeks later. No one in the eth community apart from miners want to stay on proof of work. This fork chain will be a giant retail trap. miners, exchanges, traders are all trying to talk it up for their own self-interested reasons.
No one wants to use or build ethpow. He have studied the etc, bch, and bsv forks and these were actually dividing their respective communities. In all cases, their minorities were actual believers and not in it for a short-term trade. Ethpow doesn’t have 1% of that support.
