As the crypto group strikes nearer to The Merge, eyes have turned to all alts of Ethereum, together with ETC. Both Hoskinson and Buterin have been sharing their opinions on the place Ethereum miners ought to flip after the Merge is full.

Hoskinson and Ergo

Hoskinson Tweeted to ask Ethereum miners to mine Ergo over ETC on Sept. 6.

A couple of hours earlier, he shared his opinions on ETC and mentioned that it was a “dead project with no purpose or real compelling argument to exist.”

Hoskinson had beforehand urged implementing a decentralized treasury and establishing a improvement fund for the ETC. His proposal altered the ETC block rewards allocation to switch a portion of it to the treasury.

The ETC group rejected this proposal as a result of they didn’t need to be minimize from their rewards, which was expressed by Twitter consumer Maximalist.and so on, as a “20% miner tax.”

Hoskinson’s mentioned:

“ETC still gives me sadness for what could have been.”

Buterin and ETC

Soon after The Merge calendar was revealed, ETC elevated by over 150% all through July.

On Aug. 23, a Twitter ballot was hosted by node operator @cryptovium, who requested which PoW coin Ethereum miners will flip to after the merge is full and wished members to decide on between ETC, Ergo, Ravencoin, and FLUX.

Ergo grew to become the clear winner of the ballot, taking 45.5% of all votes. FLUX and Ravencoin adopted as second and third with 27.6% and 19% of votes, respectively. ETC got here final, with simply 8% of votes.

However, Ethereum’s founder Vitalik Buterin replied to the ballot outcomes and spoke fondly of ETC. He mentioned:

“It’s a very welcoming community and I think they’ll definitely welcome Proof of Work fans…If you like Proof of Work, you should go use Ethereum Classic. It’s a totally fine chain.” 

The final time ETC made the information with an improve was in September 2020, when the ETC labs partnered with a safety agency to stop 51%  assaults. This determination got here just one month after Coinbase‘s determination to delay ETC transactions following the 51% assault on ETC.
