【EDCON】Breaking Down the EIP-999 Debate–Preethi Kasireddy

One of the Chinese Ethereum Communities- LinkTime successfully hosted Community Ethereum Development Conference in Toronto, Canada on May 3 to 5, 2018. The video and PPT are shown as follows.

Preethi Kasireddy, CEO and founder of TruStory, presented her demonstration on breaking down the EIP-999 debate. She pointed out that the proposal originated from the hack attack on Parity which led to wallets inaccessible and funds being blocked in 587 wallets.

EIP-999 tries to revive the smart contract through a patched version, which allows owners to regain access to their assets. Those proposing the EIP-999 feel that Ethereum protocol does not allow the restoration of self-destructed contracts and their is no other simply way to enable the affected users and companies regaining access to their tokens and Ether.
