Ethereum [ETH] is one of the most proficient cryptos in the space and its wider adoption has become one of the most speculated and debated topics in the cryptosphere. Recently, Ethereum [ETH] welcomed a major partnership with Ernst and Young, which could signal the release of its new-zero proof technology on the Ethereum blockchain.
Despite such major developments, one of the major issues Ethereum and other major cryptocurrencies have faced is the addition of security value to their asset.
A prominent Ethereum Classic [ETC] proponent believes that the ETC network can assist the main Ethereum blockchain in improving its security.
Donald McIntyre, the manager of ETCDEV, an organization focused on the development of Ethereum, recently stated that the divergent functions of ETH and ETC could improve the relevance of Ethereum Classic.
McIntyre drew a comparison between ETH and ETC, terming the respective digital assets as a “sports car” and an “armored vehicle”. He drew this comparison to explain that ETH was fundamentally about scaling and performance, while ETC emphasized on high value and security.
He suggested that ETH was heading towards the identification of a network which would provide high speed and high transactions layers to meet high-performance applications, whereas ETC was based on decentralized computing and smart contracts between people and companies.
“In that analogy, ETC could even provide security services to high performance networks such as ETH. I think it would be a big advantage for both ecosystems [ETH and ETC] to analyze that possibility as it would likely minimize, in the context of a standards war, which means that only few networks will survive in the future.”
He further piled on the “unique characteristics” of ETC, stating that after ETH’s transformation to ETH 2.0, ETC would be the only non-fragmented, fixed monetary policy, PoW, and Turing-based blockchain.
“That is an extremely valuable niche in the industry that will be increasingly appreciated in the next few years as the layer 1 [L1] vs layer [L2] and security vs performance segmentations become more evident for market participants.”
