Please follow the meeting discussion here as they finalize the variables in real-time:
ETC Labs Core, in consultancy with OpenRelay and ChainSafe, develop and propose a finality algorithm called MESS for Ethereum Classic that, if adopted by the honest majority, would raise chain state finality near-exponentially with negligible risk of network bifurcation.
A low hashrate has caused Ethereum Classic's consensus algorithms to yield inconvenient and undesirable finality rates. ECIP-1100 "MESS" offers a way to increase the finality rate without tampering with existing "hard" chain consensus functions or characteristics, and to do so with minimal negative side effects.
Questions must be submitted to this issue comment thread or directly at ETC Discord.
