We believe in decentralized, censorship-resistant, permissionless blockchains. We believe in the original vision of Ethereum as a world computer you can't shut down, running irreversible smart contracts. We believe in a strong separation of concerns, where system forks are only possible in order to correct actual platform bugs, not to bail out failed contracts and special interests. We believe in the censorship-resistant platform that can be actually trusted - by anyone.
Ethereum Foundation responded to DAO debacle in the worst way possible. Special interests controlling the Foundation are ramming through DAO bailout hard fork against the principled opposition of a significant economic minority of Ethereum stakeholders. According to (diligently hidden, pro-fork) coin vote on Carbonvote, 19% of ETH holders oppose this hard fork. Also, about 22% of Ethereum miners voted against the previous 'DAO soft fork' and would logically oppose hard fork as well. Such a significant minority of stakeholders should not be silenced or intimidated into submission - they should be given a clear choice.
If we want to continue to move forward and guarantee the survival of the original Ethereum vision, we must fork Ethereum. This will lay the foundation to build secure decentralized applications that are actually censorship resistant.
The main goal of the project is to ensure the survival of the original Ethereum blockchain. We will strive to provide an alternative for people who strongly disagree with DAO bailout and the direction Ethereum Foundation is taking their project. Anyone opting to remain on the original chain should have such opportunity.
