Ethereum Classic is all set to get a hard fork of its own soon to counter the sustained DOS attack.
Ethereum Classic is on its way to get a hard fork in the next two days.
Ethereum recently split into two blockchains following a hard fork introduced by the Ethereum development team a few months ago. The hard fork resulted in two versions — Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC). While Ethereum continued to operate on the new fork, a portion of the cryptocurrency community decided to continue with the original Ethereum blockchain, calling it Ethereum Classic.
BTCC, a major Chinese Bitcoin exchange, recently launched a new USD-to-Bitcoin exchange. Upon its successful US debut, the company announced its support for Ethereum Classic over ETH.
On July 26, the Ethereum development team completed its hard fork to protect investors against the DAO attack. Almost immediately after the hard fork execution, Ethereum Classic emerged, to maintain the original governance model of Ethereum.
Leading Bitcoin exchanges, including Kraken and Bitfinex, have supported both Ethereum Classic and Ethereum since, considering large market caps of both ETC and ETH.....

Bitcoin is an interesting idea, but I think their mechanism for regulating the currency supply is fundamentally flawed. Because the Bitcoin supply doesn't increase in proportion to the growth or use of Bitcoins, there is a deflationary effect, creating an incentive for people to hoard Bitcoins rather than spend them. Gresham's Law in economics suggests that for a complementary currency to be successful, it needs to have an inflationary effect that exceeds inflation in the national currency.
