Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference.

" @open_relay will help #EthereumClassic to develop the newly proposed MESS security feature by establishing its testnet, and designing and conducting simulations, while @ChainSafeth works to review the many security proposals to keep the network safe."
Ultimately PoW is the only consensus algorithm that we have which allows for a maximally decentralized, permissionless, and censorship-resistant network which naturally resists concentration of power.

Watch today's presentation of MESS (Modified Exponential Subjective Scoring) as @isaacardis and @austinrobertsiv breakdown the details, address the positives and the potential negatives of this new proposed security feature to protect the #EthereumClassic network. https://t.co/AwNVACADXg
After multiple 51% attacks, Ethereum Classic (ETC) developers working towards making the project’s network more resistant to blockchain reorganization (reorg) exploits.

If MESS is adopted by the honest majority of #EthereumClassic nodes, it would raise chain state finality near-exponentially with negligible risk of network bifurcation.

Yaz @Yazanator, you were an integral part of the growth and development of this open source project, especially these last few years.
We wish you nothing but the best of luck moving forward and are grateful for all your contributions to ETC. You have an amazing, positive spirit! https://t.co/IVOBNDOL6B
Join us Monday for another ECIP with Sergio Lerner ( @SDLerner) and Martin Medina of @RSKsmart as they present ECIP-1096, "51% Attack Protection System Based on Bitcoin Merged Mining."
Monday, Sep. 14, 2020; 2PM UTC, 7AM PST, 10AM EST
More details below.
Thanks to everyone who participated in today's ETC Core Dev Call. Resolutions below:
• ECIP-1043 "Fixed DAG Size" replaced by ECIP-1099; in last call (3 weeks)
• ECIP-1049 "Keccack256" moved to last call (4 weeks)
• ECIP-1095 "SHA3-256" rejected
PSA: ETC Core Development Call | Fri, 4PM UTC
Join us on Friday for a core development call focused on mining algorithm "Last Call" changes. Currently we have a few on the table i.e. SHA3, Keccack256, RandomX
When: Fri. 4PM UTC
Where: Jits link TBD
Recently @InputOutputHK gave their presentation to the ETC community about their "checkpointing" ECIP for ETC.
They brought with them their devs and researchers who dove deep into the mechanics of the proposal and closed with a Q&A.
More info below.
Using #Keccak256 or #SHA3 would put #EthereumClassic in a unique position as potential leader with regards to hash rate of its own mining algorithm.

Read more below.
The Immutability Promise of the #EthereumClassic does not speak directly to any particular set, complete or partial, of chain data. Instead, it speaks to the intention of continuing a network and database protocol as designed ad infinitum.

. @InputOutputHK devs are set to give their presentation on "Checkpointing"—a way to prevent future 51% attacks.
We kindly ask other ECIP authors i.e. @MaxwellSanchezX of @veriblock, @SDLerner + @dieguito of @RSKsmart & @Dexaran join us!
More info below.
ETC is ~3% of the overall ETH network hashrate. We are well aware of potential repeated attacks while solutions such as "reorg caps" and the subsequent ECIPs are being tested and evaluated.
If you haven't already please increase (which most have) please raise confs above ~12K. https://t.co/UjqoSIES70
Join us on Friday, for #IOHK's presentation on their "Checkpointing" proposal, a solution to preventing 51% attacks on #EthereumClassic.
When: Friday Sept. 4, 2PM UTC; 7AM PST
Where: Crowdcast (link: https://t.co/fQIEmscAHP)
cc @SDLerner @RSKsmart @MaxwellSanchezX @Dexaran
IOHK will provide a CrowdCast presentation regarding their "Checkpointing" ECIP that would prevent 51% attacks on the ETC.
We invite all ETC stakeholders and other ECIP authors to join and provide feedback.
More info below.

Create a tradeable digital token that can be used as a currency, a representation of an asset, a virtual share, a proof of membership or anything at all. These tokens use a standard coin API so your contract will be automatically compatible with any wallet, other contract or exchange also using this standard.
