Ethereum Classic wants to encourage the development of dApps

A tweet on the official profile of Ethereum Classic has revealed that they are working on simplifying the development of dApps. 

The tweet features a video posted on YouTube that talks about the initiative launched by Zane Starr of ETC Labs involving OpenRPC and Jade Service Runner for the development of dApps on Ethereum Classic (ETC).

ETC was born from a fork of Ethereum in July 2016, when some members of the Ethereum community refused to accept the fork and decided to carry on the original prefork version, calling it indeed Ethereum Classic. 

For this reason, the two projects have since followed different development paths, to the point that to date there are still very few dApps on Ethereum Classic. 

This initiative by Zane Starr aims to revamp the existing ETC ecosystem by developing new features that will provide solutions to reduce complexity and issues for dApp developers.

To do this, developers are using Jade Service Runner (JSR), a service manager that offers demonisation and installation services that improve functionality by helping them access locally managed services.

For Ethereum Classic developers it is a convenient solution because, for example, it allows them to get more information without having to ask the user for all the details repeatedly. 

The ETC development roadmap includes the creation of new tools that will help developers to operate effectively with decentralised services.

One of these solutions is a peer-to-peer network of hosting services that will allow programmers to flexibly switch from the user’s local infrastructure to other services.

To reduce the complexity of integrating these new tools, the ETC development team would like to introduce attributes in the form of easy-to-understand and easy-to-use buttons. This should make it easier for developers to create and use new decentralised solutions such as dApps.
