Ethereum Classic Labs incubator has launched a new Ethereum Classic (ETC) development team ETC Labs Core. The company has unveiled this in a blog post published Jan. 14.
According to the announcement, the new team will be working on core ETC projects, supporting the coin’s blockchain and providing tools for decentralized application development, mining, and services.
In the first quarter of 2019 the team will purportedly focus on reviewing Ethereum’s (ETH) Constantinople hard fork, which is set to happen around Jan. 16. This will be done prior to finalizing the Ethereum Classic Improvement Proposal 1045, which will introduce support for some parts of Ethereum’s Byzantium and Constantinople upgrades on the ETC network.
