Last Friday, ETC Labs sat down with ETC Cooperative, Ethereum Commonwealth, and ETC Consortium for the ChangeNow.io AMA! We received lots of great questions about ETC, network upgrades and more. In case you missed it, I’m sharing my responses — check them out, below.
Could you please tell us a bit more about yourself: What are your interests and hobbies, how did you become familiar with crypto, and what was the impetus to start supporting ETC?Elizabeth Kukka, ED at ETC Labs
Outside of work I like to read fantasy and popular nonfiction, spend a lot of time hiking, listening to music and I used to go to live shows prior to the Covid-19 pandemic. I found out about crypto in 2014, but watched on the sidelines for a couple of years. In 2016 I found out about ETH/ETC and was interested in the smart contract aspect of it. I then started hosting panels on data ownership and security while working at Plug and Play Tech Center. I was super stoked to have an offer to join ETC Labs in 2018.
What are the most special features of ETC and what contribution has your team already made to the project?https://open-rpc.org/
Some pretty cool features that can be utilized on ETC include OpenRPC and CoreGeth. The OpenRPC Specification defines a standard, programming language-agnostic interface description for JSON-RPC 2.0 APIs. The second would be the community’s commitment to client innovation, for example CoreGeth.
How do you see the future of ETC? Can you share any info about the updates you plan to offer to the community?
Well, ETC will stay PoW despite some other trends that you see popping-off left and right. And, by keeping with PoW, the community can provide reliability to developers, miners, investors etc. PoW has long-term viability. For updates, there are plenty. Interoperability being one. For example, POA Networks and Tokenbridge , or an even more recent example is Chainbridge.
