On January 8th Augur, a decentralized oracle and prediction market protocol built on the Ethereum blockchain, appeared to bet on delisting Ethereum Classic from the trading platform Coinbase. The amount of money at the rate is still 0.76 ETH. The expiration date is scheduled for January 1st, 2020.
Cornell University Professor, co — director of Initiative for Cryptocurrencies and Smart Contracts and one of the founders of the Bitcoin NG Protocol Emin gun Sirer called this bet – “an assassination market for Ethereum Classic”.
Probably, the decadent mood of users associated with the recent “attack 51%” on the network etc.
Recall that earlier ETCDEV, leading project team of Ethereum Classic (ETC), collapsed because of funding problems.
