I seem to recall that there was a suggestion to change some parameters in order to shift the available hashpower to attack ETC with - sorry for the vagueness, I don't remember the details. Is this moving forward? If so, what is the timeline? To be more specific, would this mean that ETH ASICs would no longer be able to mine on ETC?
Ethereum Classic is an open, decentralized, and permissionless public blockchain, that aims to fulfill the original promise of Ethereum, as a platform where smart contracts are free from third-party interference. ETC prioritizes trust-minimization, network security, and integrity. All network upgrades are non-contentious with the aim to fix critical issues or to add value with newly proposed features; never to create new tokens, or to bail out flawed smart contracts and their interest groups.
