Therefore, The ETC MainNet Phoenix activation is now scheduled to happen on or around 5 June at block 10_500_839.
Ethereum Classic’ Rise in 2015
Ethereum, a global, open-source platform for decentralized applications launched in July 2015 experienced the infamous DAO hack a year later that led to the splitting of blockchain into two: A part of ETC continued with the unaltered history of the network and the other part of ETH took lead in the terms of size of market share.
Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum recently appeared to be affirmative about the reunion of Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC) using the Eth 2.0 Beacon Chain, he stated that this rejoining of the blockchains is a possibility but however, an instant enthusiasm from both the ETH and from the ETC community was not observed.
Grayscale Investments, a trusted authority on digital currency investing focuses on the provision of security access made a confirmation that they will continue to back the project by making a donation of one third of the management fees that is generated from its Grayscale Ethereum Classic Trust in the start of this year. Thus, adding a boost in the confidence of ETC developers and fuelling their enthusiasm.
Grayscale is reported to have made a donation of around $1.1 million for the purpose of aiding the blockchain’s development after it became an active supporter of the protocol in 2017.
