ETCDEV's development team was manipulated into making Github organizational changes requested by DFG - Digital Finance Group which runs ETC Labs to add an owner to the EthereumProject Github Organazation. After multiple requests, the developer believed to be Eric Yang a.k.a krykoder was granted ownership roles on the Github organization. Shortly following in a malicious act founded by DFG management, all original owners were removed so that DFG could have controlling access of the Github organization.
After failed attempts to have Github restore proper ownerships. Github citing their TOS and failing to do what is right, along with the unresponsive and cold nature of DFG, we came to the conclusion this was indeed a malicious takeover brought on by the hands of DFG's management team.
DFG later published a public statement talking about doing what is best for the ecosystem, and sitting high and mighty on what they think was in the best interest of ETC. They made no attempts to talk with the community, its stakeholders, or anyone else involved with ETC to come to this decision. This has now been deemed a malicious attack on the ETC network, with hostile parties controlling the original Github organization.
We made one final attempt to reach out to James from DFG in order to revert their hostile actions, but were met with silence. The same group claiming to be doing what is in the best interest for ETC has nothing to say to the 6,000 member community. This does not align with their false public statements of doing what is best for the ecosystem.
What can you do
We need every community member, miner, stakeholder and fan of ETC to voice their dismay loud and clear to DFG that this will not be tolerated.
DFG intends to centralize the network, the governance behind it and the future of ETC through its software development team ETC Labs. WITHOUT ANY SAY FROM YOU!
Please share this information, write your disapproval to DFG and ETC Labs management teams and let them know this will not be an acceptable way to act on our decentralized network.
ACT NOW! Beat the war drum on the doorsteps of these malicious actors. Communicate your disgust and distrust for this move with the following public contact points:
Sad I have to say this, but this contact info is for expressing you don't like the actions taken by DFG...Not to make threats to them...Don't threaten people, that is absurd!
