Why is ETC (Ethereum Classing) going up so fast at the moment? - The Callisto Project


Callisto Project is coming up on March 5 2018

Quick summary:

  • It is not a hard fork, it's an airdrop. The difference is there won't be a shared history.
  • Both chains will continue to exist.
  • Those holding ETC at block 5.5 million (around March 5 2018) will receive an equivalent amount of CLO.
  • If you want your CLO the safest bet is storing your ETC in a wallet that is not on exchanges. Mobile wallets (ex. Jaxx) are also unknown.
  • If you want your Exchange/Wallet to give you your CLO then you'll need to ask them.
  • CEW will support CLO as it's made by Dexaran.
  • CLO will serve as a sort of testnet for ETC, but with monetary value. It will have changes made to it that the ETC community considers risky. If these changes prove valuable/reliable then they may be added to ETC. Imagine the relationship between BTC and LTC.

Edit: Also to clarify. Dexaran is the leader of Ethereum Commonwealth; one of the 3 ETC development teams. I've provided this information and stickied this post solely to answer some common questions and keep an orderly discussion. This subreddit is principally an Ethereum Classic subreddit.
