Ethereum Classic launches SDK for building dApps

The new set of tools by the dev team of Ethereum Classic is now available on their website.

As part of its strategy to attract developers and investors that wishes to contribute with the network, Ethereum Classic (ETC) has recently announced the release of its Software Development Kit (SDK) for anyone willing to develop distributed apps (dApps).

Dubbed “Emerald Software Development Kit”, the new toolkit is – according to Ethereum Classic – a long-awaited release that will enable developers and crypto enthusiasts to build their own dApps on this network, in a similar way to its more-popular counterpart, Ethereum.

When checking the SDK download website, people will find themselves with a set of beginner’s instructions to make it easy to understand its basic functions. These explain core features such as the use of Truffle’s smart contract compiler through a .js file, the different commands to configure and run the dApp on the Testnet, among others.

The announcement poses an important step in the roadmap of ETC, for its introduction into the dApps marketplace is a clear warning to Ethereum (ETH) that they are ready to play their game and get more investors interested in the so-called "original Ethereum" blockchain, much to the dismay of Vitalik Buterin’s network.

Will it succeed?

Despite the efforts to further develop their crypto ecosystem and make it appealing for potential investors, the ETC blockchain is still an underrated project living in the shadow of its hard forked, yet more popular brother.

One of the main differences between the two, is that ETH is currently working on its jump from its actual core consensus algorithm, Proof-of-Work (PoW) to a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus; whereas ETC is not only sticking to its also PoW core algorithm, but encouraging the use of ASIC miners to keep their network secure from cyberattacks and other potential threats.

And with a market cap of $1.09 billion and a price per unit of $10.57 – at press time – Ethereum Classic has yet to prove its value for investors, if it really wants to seduce them to come over their blockchain.
