Donald McIntyre, a crypto enthusiast, says it would be reasonable to merge Ethereum Classic and Ethereum in order to create a powerful and secure blockchain.

Both systems should be integrated one into another, he says, so that one might get a better platform. In McIntyre’s opinion, the strong point of Ethereum is performance and better scalability, while Ethereum Classic has low transaction cost and security. By combining all this, one could get a nearly perfect blockchain.

Besides, the new platform based on two ecosystems could be more competitive and stand ground against EOS and Tezos.

Ethereum Classic has some good potential indeed, but it lacks fundamental drivers on its way through the crypto rating, being just 18 th . The ETH, meanwhile, must become more scalable, which would make it more in-demand and competitive.
