I don't support "Ethereum classic".

Baby started saying "dai-dai-dai" and I'm very proud she understands how the price stability of the $dai is not only a refuge during very volatile periods, but that it reminds us of the real value of the platform that allows a correct implementation of underlying mechanisms.

Ethereum Classic is what happens when original developers and a whole community decide to leave an old chain to die in the side of the road. Instead it survived and came back with a vengeance. It’s inspiring really.

The new DAI will include a Saving Rate, which is controlled by a Stability Fee, which is controlled by a Rates Policy Oracle which in turn is set by a Maker Global vote. At this point it's better to describe them as a on-chain central mint than simply an algorithmic stable coin. But don't take that as a criticism. Highly complex governance structures, with multiple competing incentives that try to align the Nash equilibrium to the desired outcome (in this case, "Dai still at one dollar") is exactly why Ethereum was built.
