The biggest hit that any cryptocurrency has taken ever since the start of 2019 has to be Ethereum Classic [ETC] as it underwent a brutal 51% attack causing a loss of $1.1 million worth of ETCs. In light of new evidence, there have been some ‘skeletons’ crawling out of the closet.
According to independent research conducted by the “SlowMist” team, the attack was noticed by them on January 6, 2019. However, Donald McIntyre, BDM at the Ethereum Classic says that the attack happened in two stages. The first attack took place on January 5 and 6 and the second attack took place on January 6 and 7.
