Medium post introduced the team and has Constantine Kryvomaz, Michael Collison, Mike Lubinets, Shane Jonas, Stevan Lohja, and Zachary Belford. The post also elaborates ETC’s game plan for 2019, including the introduction of an app GUI in the second quarter that will enable third parties to deploy distributed apps.
The ETC network will also be upgraded to make it compatible with the Constantinople hard fork on the Ethereum blockchain. Earlier expected to release on January 16, the hard fork has been delayed due to some security concerns.
Currently, it is unclear how the new core ETC Labs could ais in regards to the potential attack. The ETC network is still backed by relatively few miners despite being compatible with ASIC machines.
