The ETC project counts the building of a larger team as one of the milestones achieved in 2017:
“The main accomplishment was that the team was established, that was a very challenging task, with very limited funding, under constant pressure from all sides and toxic environment, but by end of the year we grew up to 8 full time members in the ETCDEV team. The team got established development processes, working full time on core ETC projects, and will continue to grow.”
Milestones of Ethereum classic:
On October 25th, 2016, after being renamed as Ethereum classic, they repriced some operations to prevent Dos attacks [denial-of-service attack].
On January 14th, 2017, they delayed the ‘difficulty bomb’ which was originally intended to force the network to move from pow [proof-of-work] to pos [proof-of-stake] and added replay protection to prevent transactions on the Ethereum network being accepted on the Ethereum Classic chain.
ETC aims to work on the following in 2018:
Emerald Wallet for Mobile
Release Dapp SDK [Emerald Project]
Enable new opcodes from ETH [compatibility]
SputnikVM optimizations and JIT Compilation
New improved statedb layer
Looking at its future ETC said:
“At the core of our sidechains is SputnikVM which can run smart contracts anywhere… You can do this today. Not at some nebulous time in the future”.
