Augur Users Bet On Ethereum Classic Delisting

Augur is a decentralized oracle and prediction market protocol built on the Ethereum blockchain. Starting January 8, users of Augur platform can bet on Ethereum Classic delisting from Coinbase. According to Emin Gün Sirer, professor of Cornell University, this bet might turn into ETC killer.
«This is, in effect, an assassination market for ETC,” he wrote in his Twitter account
At the meantime, the bet is worth 0,76 ETH. The end date is January 1, 2020.
Perhaps, these sentiments are related to attack 51% on ETC network. Also, it should be noted that ETCDEV, a leading ETC dev team left the project due to lack of financing.
It is worth reminding that back in December, ETCDEV stopped working due to financial problems and had to announce shutdown of all their activities.
