The former China based crypto exchange Huobi has laid down some ground rules on what fork of ethereum they will list.

Crucially, the chain must have “two-way replay protection implemented by default; that is, the trading on one forked chain is invalid on the other.”

They also require “an official client software which has passed the public test and evaluation” to be released before the hard fork.

Otherwise, “as long as the forked assets meet our security requirements, we will take the first move to support users to hold the assets and earn rewards.”

There have been a number of forks suggested among the Chinese crypto community, but the one gaining ground is EthereumPoW, promoted by the long time and well connected miner Chandler Guo.

The EthereumPoW project however says “we’ll discuss internally but most details will not be likely to shared at this early stage.”

Yet Flora Li, Director of Huobi Research, was holding an Ask me Anything session with the EthereumPoW team on the fork on Friday with the criteria released shortly after.

As such it appears somewhat clear that this fork will be a clean split with a new chain id and a hardfork client will be released.
