Ethereum Classic director on why ETC is overlooked in Ethereum killers’ debate & “practical solution” to scalability issues
Ethereum Classic director, Anthony Lusardi, in a recent interview shared how the token is often overlooked when people talk about the alternatives for Ethereum [ETH].
According to Lusardi when they started they didn’t have any resources at all and have come a long way from there. In fact, first year, he said that the Ethereum Classic team focused on trying to get everything together keeping the perception of people behind. As people mostly concentrated on Ethereum and Bitcoin – as they are top performing coins.
Lusardi told CryptoInsider, “And so when you’re a new entree like Tezos who’s just copying some ETC source code or EOS where it’s, you know that, uh, what’s his name, Byte Masters’ third dysfunctional project. Uh, you end up in a situation where all they want to do is they want to attack Ethereum because they see Ethereum as the top, certainly as by market cap and by volume and it has a great deal of developers, so they don’t want to compare themselves to ETC.”

Lusardi also added that they are looking for sidechains for scalability issues, which he says is a “practical solution”. Unlike Ethereum, which believes with sharding, Casper PoS etc, will help to achieve scalability.
He continued, “So we’re just taking largely the side chain approach in terms of scaling because you just can’t get the levels of decentralization and permissionlessness by scaling on-chain. But on sidechain you can do trade-offs but still have the main chain.”
During the interview, Lusardi also added how it is not the right time to build sizeable dApps. Currently, he thinks there’s no blockchain that can deploy “a Facebook or some sort of Google search or something.” He believes that over the next five or 10 years people are going to learn “exactly when to use the completely decentralized networks and when to use maybe something else.”
