September 9, 2020 Off By Steven Anderson

Ethereum Classic Labs recently stated that they are expanding the ETC Labs and @etc_core team to enhance network security and propel adoption for #ETC.  ETC Core have required exchanges, miners, and other stakeholders to maintain increased confirmation times: >12K, for now.

Some of them opined that 12K is a lot and they felt that it would be nice if it was a bit less.

One of the news channels named Forkcast, pointed to how despite its security flaws, etclabs CEO says that PoW still achieves a decentralized network while PoS may lead to whales dominating the network. “We would rather take the risk and maintain a truly decentralized network.

Of note Forkcast News, are focused on future thinking in times of change – emerging technology at the intersection of business, economy, and politics. From Asia, to the world.

Sydney Ifergan, the crypto expert tweeted:  “Ethereum Classic (ETC) are continuing to evaluate their solutions to deal with ongoing attacks.  They probably need their time to put things strongly and securely in place.”

ETC Labs have made a promise to do ensure everything that is possible to enhance security in order to strengthen the network and to invest more of their resources both in terms of human and financial investments. As a part of that initiative, they continue to expand the ETC Labs and its ETC Core development team.
