KawPow is a proof-of-work (PoW) algorithm that was first introduced by Ethereum Classic Vision (ETCV) and then by other blockchain networks like Ravencoin and Phoenix. It is a modification of the ProgPow algorithm and it's specifically designed for the use of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs)

KawPow is an algorithm that allows for ASIC-resistance, and it's designed to be resistant to the use of specialized ASIC mining hardware by using a random kernel that is used to change the computational process. The kernel is generated randomly, and it's based on the block header, which means that each block will have a different kernel, making it difficult for ASICs to be developed.

In addition to the kernel, KawPow also uses dynamic memory requirements, which ensures that mining with GPUs is more efficient than mining with ASICs. This also helps to prevent centralization of mining power, as it makes it more difficult for any one miner or mining pool to gain a significant advantage.
