Is Ethereum Emerald A Scam?
Ethereum Classic says that ETE uses a similar name to Ethereum Classic’s Emerald Project to attract more individuals and investors. Additionally, ETC says that ETE is a scam because there is no information about the team or the project in general, and that the followers are all bots.
Ethereum Classic has released a cryptocurrency wallet known as Emerald Wallet. The ETC development team known as ETCDEV is a group of software engineers and professionals that work on the core project of Ethereum Classic.

The update of the Emerald Wallet v1.0.0 include point to full or light node, Point to Mainnet or Testnet node and RPC.
