Ethercoin is the hard fork of Ethereum
It resolves the long-lasting issues in Ethereum Project
In other words, it is what Ethereum could have achieved if done right
The uncertainty in monetary policy and high inflation threaten the long-term value of Ethereum. So in Ethercoin, the total number is capped to 1B, and the block reward is attenuated every 1.5 years.
The difficulty is not increasing exponentially, but being able to adjust automatically based on the current hashing power every few blocks. With this approach, we do not need a hard fork to delay the ice age or difficulty bomb.
EtherCoin takes serious consideration in all aspects asserted that are related to Eth?network and keeps all of them in inherent token contract format.
AA new decentralized ERC token exchange will be available for current ERC Token trades after hard fork.
EtherCoin will align with the BIA (Blockchain Interoperabiility Aliance) standard, such as Aion Network Protocol, to provide cross-chain Ether transaction, smart contract, logic and atomic operation with BIA compliance network.
PoS is not the right way to go. Instead, EtherCoin is guaranteed to run PoW as it algorithm always functions effectively.
We've seen too many security breaches this year on Ethereum. We want
to put an end to this embarrassing situation with the new approach.
Parallel Ethereum Virutal Machine is one of the most critical feature for scalable ETH blockchain. EtherCoin will adopt dependency analysis engine along with VM and parallel execute independent contract in parallel mode for symmetric multiprocessing system.
As more advance equihash implementation occured recently, eg AION use (210,9) to enhance the equihash anti-asic strength. EtherCoin will deploy similar hardening version of equishash in the follow-up patch.
