The drama continues with the DAO hack and the un-ethical behaviour of the ethereum devs aka “WHG” involved.
if anybody benefit the most of the hack it seems the ethereum foundation and developers did.
How you ask?
With a big stake of $eth tokens and therefor got the same amount of free $etc tokens, to sell.
Now seems they will benefit financially again, with owners unclaimed $etc funds.
By putting in place timely rules they seem fit, without asking anybody permission.
They clearly had incentive to set an expiration date to withdraw the $etc hacked tokens, to benefit themselves.
First they tried dumping all etc tokens on exchanges without owners consent and was stopped by exchanges, threatened with legal actions by owners of the coins.
While even law enforcement got involved thanks to the swift reaction of exchanges.
Is this even legal? many would say not.
And why have they set a time-limit to withdraw the stolen etc tokens?
Seems the ethereum protocol can be changed/forked manipulated to benefit the few who control it for financial benefits.
This kind of behaviour in cryptocurrency is unprecedented.
We have seen numerous ethereum developers openly tweet they’re involvement in the “WHG” progress of hacking the etc funds from the DAO.
To then deny any involvement after it became clear there might be legal actions against them after the unauthorised moving of etc to try to dump them on the market without owners consent.
This kind of behaviour should not be tolerated in the cryptocurrency industry and sets a dangerous precedent for those involved.
We might see owners starting legal cases against this action.
The withdrawal of 2 million $etc will take place in aprox 2 weeks worth 3000 $btc.
