The first reports of EtherZero in the public appeared in the last decade of December of last year. They talked about the development of a decentralized next-generation platform for the development of a Smart contract. The development of this hard forks Ethereum was conducted by a team of professionals engaged in the development of DAPP.
The main characteristics of the ETZ, according to public information are:
- 2-tier network architecture with a Dash Masternode;
- high level of scalability and speed of transactions;
- zero Commission fees;
- offline community management EtherZero.
On ethereum.org, the official web portal developers ETH is missing any information and comments about the new hard forks ETZ.
The developers EtherZero report that users of this new cryptocurrency will receive approximately 116 million tokens ETZ, and one EtherZero equal to one Ethereum. In addition, they want to take away from the Ethereum about 10% of its capitalization, which 21.01.2018 was 102 billion.
On the site of the new hard forks can be found logos of cryptocurrency exchanges, which, according to developers, will support ETZ; from the trading platforms any comments on this issue have been reported. However, trading new coins has already begun on the site of the Yobi.
