Ethereum Classic [ETC] tweeted about a trick airdrop known as Ether Emerald or Ethereum Emerald [ETE]. The Twitter record of the scammer tricked readers as it said that it is a child platform of the smart contract advancement stage of Ethereum.

Ethereum Classic had a counter-reaction to the same, as they cautioned individuals stating that Ether Emerald is not part of their team.

On 1st July, Ethereum Classic tweeted:

“Scam Airdrop – ETE #EtherEmerald is *Not* affiliated with #EthereumClassic Using @etcdev’s “Emerald Project” as their project name to confuse users – No Team/Project info – No Code – No Communication – Follower bots – Plagiarized Roadmap Use common sense. #CryptoScams #Scams”

Izuchukwu Udeh, a Twitter user commented:

“Do you actually mean that there will be no ETC Hardfork on the 13th of July, no Ethereum Emerald to be forked from ETC? And no giving of ETE 1 – 1 ETC Holders?”

Scamming users with “Giving away ETH” is not a new scam racket in the crypto-world. But as for ETE airdrops and fraudulent usage of ‘Emerald Project’ is concerned, Ethereum played its duty as they warned the users about the fake networking. Ethereum Classic has an advanced independent development group known as ETCDEV. This group discharged Emerald Wallet v1.0.0 to the network last month.
