Anyone talking about or buying BCH/ETC is a newb jackass who's learning as he/she goes. I was that newb jackass not long ago. When govt regulators are harping about BCH/ETC, they aren't ready to regulating. They're newb jackasses learning as they go.

Mentions:#BCH#ETC

AMEN. That was my first thought. BCH but not ETC? (Neither should be included) It really shows how little these people “get it”

Mentions:#BCH#ETC

People still buy ETC because it’s “cheap eth”

My positive take on this project: Regarding VR: I like the possibility of having multiple screens this is great for multitasking people, traders, programmers ETC. The games are more imersive even the simpler ones like surfing bowling etc. I'd love to play super mario kart in it. About the metaverse the VR meetings are probably a really good idea for remote workers. The create your space and meet your friends in your own "house" to play games is probably a good replacement for discord if you intend on playing VR games of course. The graphics are crappy yes but it's run by a small gadget on top of your head which is a small computer. The 10B they invested is probably still being spent and it's Zucks next big project I doubt he will give up that fast

Mentions:#VR#ETC

So random that BCH was thrown in there. Might as well throw in ETC, Doge, and Shiba FTW?

Mentions:#BCH#ETC

I think it is inevitable that there will be a new ETH fork incorporating all of the code changes in ETH to date but minus both 'The Merge' and the 'difficulty bomb'. (No it will not be ETC -- that wouldn't achieve the goal I have just described.) I don't know if the fork mentioned above is going to fly or it's just an opportunistic rug pull, but I do know that by hook or by crook, a new ETH fork will exist. Tech markets do not just let golden opportunities pass unexploited like a market leader abandoning a perfectly good and highly profitable market niche.

Mentions:#ETH#ETC

This is not true. Ethereum is the forked chain of Ethereum Classic. ETC is the original chain.

Mentions:#ETC

The problem is, once they fork: 1. The devs will certainly stick to the current (soon to be POS) chain 2. What will happen to the Eth that’s been staked and locked? 3. How will they attract new users (especially dapp developers) to the chain? And another issue here which most people are unaware of is that anyone can fork any network, but the main issue is attracting users in it. For Instance, why did people move from ETC to ETH even tho it was the main chain where code is still law? Because of it’s Network Effect The problem with POW, especially in Ethereum is that there’s no fix supply, which means ETH+PoW is still very inflationary (as of now it’s at 4% even after EIP1559), and nobody would want their coins to keep being diluted tbh The thing is, if you want a POW chain, then just fork it now rather than waiting for the Eth devs to do the dirty work to then copy-paste the chain TL;DR: 1. Network Effects 2. No devs No growth 3. Lots of issues in it’s fundamentals 4. Hard Fork pretty much means copy-pasting a blockchain (with all its tx history)

Mentions:#ETC#ETH

Every POW blockchain reorgs itself maybe 1-2 blocks, not 3000 as ETC had.

Mentions:#ETC

Whatever, but ETC has been already reorged and compromised. It failed his values of being inmutable, and the attack effects will stay in it for all the remaining ETC lifetime

Mentions:#ETC

ETC has been 51%-able in the past because it had only a few percent of ETH hash power so a few ETH miners switching over could wreck havoc. Post-merge, *some* chain will become the largest GPU minable chain, and that chain will gain a *lot* of extra security. That new chain might not be ETC, but it might be, and that could bring a lot of value to the network.

Mentions:#ETC#ETH

If I just left in BTC and ETC prob better lol. And of course I would need to leave it with someone safe like Celsius

Mentions:#BTC#ETC

Some miners will try. I think they will quickly find out that it wont be profitable. Since noone uses ETC and with all the miners jumping onboard the power costs/increased dificulty means the coins need to rise higher then there is demand from buyers.

Mentions:#ETC

ETC has been compromised many times in the past. At this moment is just a chain with more reorgs and transaction reversals than Solana has been stopped. ETC was in theory “the inmutable” fork of Ethereum, but now that “immutability” part is way compromised

Mentions:#ETC

This seems like it's only designed to benefit miners? If not then why not just move to ETC??

Mentions:#ETC

ETC cap will be huge once implemented in the eco system

Mentions:#ETC

How can you "force" a hard fork without the compliance of developers and validators? If Vitalik and others recommended something and the majority thought that was the best idea, that seems pretty democratic to me. If the majority of people disagreed, ETC would be the bigger project, but it's not.

Mentions:#ETC

I’ll give you my insight. I previously owned only DOGE and ETH. I figured that the price of ETC was so low compared to ETH I could invest the same amount of money into it, and it’ll ride the wave of whatever ETH hits. I heard some shit over a year or two ago about how ETH is supposed to be the next bitcoin in terms of massive crypto with a big price, like 10k+ within 5-10 years, and I thought well shit why not invest some into ETH and try to make some money since I missed the boat on bitcoin. I’ve bought ETH a few times (3.4K and 2.4K and 1.8k) and I’m up on it! I’m at profit but not by much but that’s cus the price is only around 1900 rn. I was up like 4K from ETH last year when it was smooth sailing. Didn’t sell cus I’m long. Decided it was time to invest in ETC too, without knowing shit about POS vs POW and didn’t know about ETH 2.0 actually coming out now, and I bought a total of 40 ETC and I’m also up on that and it’s price is nowhere near the ATH, so I expect the new ATH to be at least $150, Idc when that happens, I just know with time it will, whether it’s cus ETC becomes the real ETH or if the “newly forked” ETH goes up like crazy and ETC just reflects it but on a smaller scale. Either way I’ll be up money cus it’s cheap to invest in a safe bet. Shoutout to the people who like actually mine shit and helping out ETC rn ILY

Mentions:#DOGE#ETH#ETC

Usually it’s when ETC moons but the Merge chaos is distorting that

Mentions:#ETC

I made off like a bandit for the BCH fork but unfortunately (for me) I don't think this one will be as valuable. There's no coherent plan so far. A fork would require majority of the miners to collude, in which case they could do it pre-merge to create the most uncertainty for Ethereum. If the new fork doesn't have majority of POW then it will be extremely susiptible to attack by other miners who can't participate profitibily, plus all other miners who support POS but still have a GPU. ETC is 51% attacked more than once a year for reference. It will be an immense challenge to prevent it long enough to build consumer confidence, which is when miner profit first comes in, which could be days or months or years. It's a balancing act I'm not sure they'll be able to pull off, especially with no DeFi presence and no collateral backing any contract/loan, it's going to be a ghost chain until money comes in but money won't unless there's a reason. Will make a good research topic anyway. I wonder what's going to happen..

I really live in a reality where Doge, SHIb, and ETC are considered more valuable than LTC. I hate this reality…

Mentions:#ETC#LTC

Monero is CPU mined and is not profitable. GPU mining will become not profitable once the ETH merge occurs as the vast majority of GPU miners move between a few coins including ETC, ERG, FLUX. If you already have GPUs, you may as well mine right now. Definitely not worth to start a whole new mining rig now. We'll see what happens after the merge.

Show me where I said private smart contracts are impossible? I literally stated a fact that Ethereum has a multi-billion $ worth of defi ecosystem (which makes it a target for regulators) while Monero literally has none, I’m sorry if that fact upset you. You also provided zero proof that POW is better than POS besides “trust me bro, it’s harder” while ignoring what I’ve said that the richer get richer under a POW scheme as well. BTC mining is centralized as shit with ASICs. ETC/BTG have been 51% attacked multiple times. This isn’t exactly the shining beacon of security you’re claiming it to be. Until Ethereum completes the merge and we’ve had a few years of data showing whether or not POS is viable for a large scale cryptocurrency, this is literally all just handwaving speculation.

I is possible that legacy tokens (regardless of whether they are stable coins or not) will prove to be the barrier that an Ethereum PoW can't overcome. After all, ETC occurred before the explosion of ERC 20 tokens. On the other hand, the crypto space is a herd of cats. I wouldn't bet that some of the stable coins wouldn't also move assets onto Ethereum PoW if there are use cases and value to pursue. And hardly anyone can prevent wrapped tokens from being issued on a smart contracting platform. And again, not denying the risks. My point is that Ethereum miners have not been given a path forward with Ethereum PoS. Regardless of the risks, they have nothing to lose. After all, even if Ethereum PoW fails, it doesn't mean they can't still pivot to the exact same options they have today.

>More like edit two lines in the config and change your pools/algo to ETC/CFX/ERG/VTC/RVN. Maybe Maybe for 3% of them. The vast majority will need to sell, or mine at a loss.

"Offload their equipment" More like edit two lines in the config and change your pools/algo to ETC/CFX/ERG/VTC/RVN. Maybe a small amount will capitulate due to energy costs, but I doubt it will significantly affect anything. People with ETHash ASICs are screwed but they knew this was coming for ages, and if they haven't already reached ROI then they were either greedy or stupid, and bought them at a bad time. There is no one to offload this equipment to either, other than absolute fools or a salvage yard.

You are correct. I over-simplified. I have been accumulating ETC for quite some time, in anticipation of this event. I guess I'm just excited that there could be yet another revenue source.

Mentions:#ETH#ETC

While I don't disagree (that for an Ethereum fork to be worth 10B from thin air is hard to believe), this is what we saw with BCH. Some of that value would be extracted from Ethereum PoS, but most would just appear. That makes token holders of Ethereum somewhat conflicted about supporting or opposing Ethereum PoW, as they get a position in both automatically. The Ethereum PoW would have a few advantages over ETC: * An established base of miners, who don't even have to change their configuration to participate (because Ethereum is booting them, they just need to update their Ethereum node). * The problem of transaction replay over the networks would be a shared problem, with Ethereum PoS having more to lose in fixing replays than Ethereum PoW. * This is critical because if Ethereum PoW can get their act together quickly, they can possibly even force a delay in deploying Ethereum PoS until this issue is resolved. * More added time would allow more coordination and the removal of many uncertainties during the fork. * Many, many DeFi projects launched as smart contracts on Ethereum would continue to operate just fine. And the projects could pretty easily maintain them both. * The hard fork would have only a slight difference from Ethereum PoS, so they could largely continue to deploy updates outside of consensus as those develop for PoS. * Even the Ethereum 2.0 in the end may be adaptable by Ethereum PoW. If so, Ethereum PoW would be able to continue to ride in Ethereum PoS's "slip stream".

False. ETC can essentially become the POW version of ETH when it merges to PoS. Especially since a lot of the miners are moving over to etc and increasing its hash-rate. lots of potential there as it will be a battle between PoW and pos at that point.

I have zero hate for ETC. It could very well turn out as you say. Certainly it will gain miners. But we can't ignore the fact that a ethereum fork will have a bigger base of users, contracts, and visibility. I hope you are right, and if nobody crafts a fork, this will be moot. But I think they will.

Mentions:#ETC

>If you fork and the value of the fork plummets, then I don’t see that as a viable option either Yeah, but I think this is much like BCH. You have a chance of taking all the smart contracts that are already on ethereum and bringing them over. So a price 1/10 of eth or even 1/20 of eth is still higher than ETC.

Mentions:#ETH#ETC

probably pretty organic; people like unsustainbly high "apr"s and "airdrops". But as long as ETC and TRON stays in the top 100, I wouldn't put too much stock in which coin is the flavor of the day; the entire market is still completely irrational.

Mentions:#ETC

It's because the future of BTC rests on its price doubling every four years, expodentially, forever. Since the chain decided it's better to have small blocks with maximally high fees and few users, than to bring in lots of users (*and then* fees) through any viable use case. In other words its security budget is running out, in about 12 years it won't be secure unless fees *or the price* greatly pick up. So any time someone buys $100 of an altcoin they see it as an attack on Bitcoin, because obviously if that alt didn't exist they'd have bought BTC instead. This is why so many are foaming at the mouth to bring regulators in this space completely missing the irony. You see the same thing happening with ETH miners now. They think ETC will 50x in price so they can continue mining in profit, and so they say that Ethereum is a scam and ETC is the real chain out of self preservation. I like BTC too but the community has been compromised or something, since the BCH fork wars. If you read [comments from years ago](https://www.np.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1wl2he/z/cf3250x) they're a lot more open minded, and honest, but to say the same thing today would get you banned. It's anti-innovation and pro conservatism, to a fault. I wish things didn't turn out that way. edit, added .np

First off, selling pressure wouldn't be affected at all. Because an increase in number of miners wouldn't increase the reward. The reward would just be shared among more people. Second, an increase in network hashrate, means more attention to the currency, which will result in a price surge which will likely lead to a momentum. Ethereum Classic being listed on all major exchanges and therefore easily accessible makes me 90% confident this will happen. If not that, then ETC would still follow any increase in ETH after the merge, because it always does. Anyone who thinks ETC would fall in value following the ETH merge has not paid attention to the graphs over the years. ​ This is cryptocurrency. There are no fundamentals at play here. The existence of Doge and Shib should make this painfully obvious by now.
