Vitalik Buterin: Ethereum Classic can be integrated into Ethereum

Ethereum’s co-founder Vitalik Buterin said that blockchain Ethereum Classic can be integrated into the Ethereum 2.0 eco-system.

“You can just use the same merger process to import the ETC state that is planned for ETH, and then the ETC execution environment code would enforce a different exchange rate vs beacon chain eth, based on the rate at the time of the merger (or some other pre-agreed formula),” — he wrote on Reddit.

Buterin said that the idea can be discussed if the Ethereum Classic community approves it. Earlier ETC underwent a hardfork Agharta for ensuring compatibility with Ethereum blockchain.
