As an ACTUAL developer in this space, who has spoken to 1000s of ppl. I can say that ETC is in fact NOT a scam. Its sad that so much "fake news" is spread accross the Crypto space. As many may not realize, ETC is IN FACT the real Ethereum, and ETH is the fork. Reason being that ETC did NOT wish to give funds to hackers and ensure immutable code, NVR to be reversed. ETC has done more fir Dev than any other coin offering smart contracts, except maybe Ubiq?
As for 51% attack? It was NOT a 51% attack by definition. There was a breach of protocol, and hapoened at a block height. This can happen to ANY PoW coin. And im sure it has.
But to watch ignorant ppl bash a project who has endured Bear markets, and STILL grind away is ashame. Where is Buterin?
A REAL project works out of passion, not fortunes. And ETC is among just a few TRUE Dev teams to deserve this respect level.
VTC, Peercoin, Namecoin, Ubiq, ETC, LTC, BTC, MaidSafe are among others. But many are without HYPE or cashgrabs. But in the end, THEY are the real Devs in this space.
ETC has nvr asked for funds, nvr made promises. Just hard workers.
Ad for their achievements or innovations?
ETC was 1st real dev team to align with IoT protocols and give boom to the projects like IoTa, Smartmesh and Graphene. ETC is heading in a diff direction than ETH for future roadmap. But, they expect, as does Google, to work deep in the upvoming IoT space.
