Amid Forking Controversy, Ethereum Dev Van De Sande Notes Risks

As the Ethereum community debated a proposal to fork the network in order to unfreeze Ether tokens locked in some Parity wallets, developer Alex Van De Sande wrote a blog post arguing that any contentious hard fork would hurt the network. Along those lines, he advocates for finding a solution to the problem of the frozen tokens so that the parties which lost access to them are incentivized to continue supporting the current version of the Ethereum blockchain.
