In the past few weeks, Ethereum’s Classic two-time victim of a 51% percent attack. One would expect that the market for the currency, then it would cause, but now, even the green numbers written on it.


Double-Spend is explained

At the end of July and beginning of August, there was a 51% attack on the blockchain ETC. This is referred to as a single entity (group or individual), it fails to provide more than half of the computing power of a network to get your hands on.

Why possess anything that is easy to be attacked and stolen, as there are so many alternatives (not even in the same area of the alts). A digital currency would be safe. What am I missing here?”
