Top Crypto News Today: Ethereum Mining Alternative Ravencoin Rallies by 85% due to the Upcoming Ethereum Merge Transition

Ravecoin Price jump of over 85% comes after FTX exchange announces  listing of  Ravecoin Futures on the exchange. According to data by crypto aggregator CoinGecko, the asset has been on an uptrend for the past 7 days. 

Ravecoin’s activity has seen an uptick as Ethereum miners have shifted to the asset since Ethereum mining is about to end with the upcoming Ethereum Merge. 

Ravecoin was launched in 2018 and works on a similar consensus model like Bitcoin . RVN works on a proof of work consensus model and has a supply limit of 21 billion tokens. Similar to Ethereum, Ravecoin can be used to make payments, pay for dApps or NFTs. (Non-Fungible Tokens

NFTs are unique digital assets that are cryptographically secured and auctioned or sold on NFT marketplaces. While dApps are decentralized applications on the blockchain that have varied use cases like peer to peer gaming, Play to Earn games and a lot more.    

Ethereum mining has been a profitable way of earning crypto. The Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) equipment required to mine ETH or other PoW tokens are expensive as demand for these has shot off the roof. With the end of ETH mining, these equipment have seen a loss in demand and has brought its prices to Manufacturer Suggested Prices.   

With Ethereum Merge upon us, the miner community looking to keep crypto mining as their means of business have a few options. While there are options like Litecoin, Bitcoin, Ethereum Classic and Bitcoin Cash the returns on these are not as lucrative as it has been with Ethereum mining.

With a huge rally of the token days before the final Ethereum Merge, miners could potentially move to Ravecoin mining.
