Last weeks news recap.
A lot happened last week. Although this barely scrapes the surface, these are some of the stories that peaked The Dood’s interest.
Well Ethereum dominated the news for another week. It looks like the Ethereum report around here but it seems all that anyone talked about last week was Ethereum and Ethereum Classic. A lot of interesting news got buried in the headlines. After the first 5 Ethereum articles I get into some other altcoin news.
Kraken and other major exchanges announced support and interest in ETC helping to fuel its price rise while the price of ETH began to lower.
Vitalik Buterin addresses the “Classic” crowd.
The hardfork of Ethereum seems to of made users susceptible to a replay attack vulnerability.
51 pool announced a 51% attack against the Ethereum Classic Network. In the Dood’s humble opinion this doesn’t really seem like the type of behavior the cryptocurrency community should be condoning if we ever want to be taken seriously.
Finally we have a Step by Step guide to splitting your ETH and getting your ETC from the original chain.
In a survey on my twitter feed out of 45 votes 78% supported ETC over ETH.
