In April and Mayan online fundraiser was held on the ethereum blockchain in which participants were promised a new cryptocurrency called a DAO token that could be used to fund ethereum projects. Contributors could share in any profits.
The fundraiser proved to be a disaster.
But a hacker exploited a software flaw and stole about a third of the new DAO tokens. The idea was to make the stolen tokens worthless and enable contributors to receive refunds.
On July 20,the do-over took effect. The DAO project was abandoned. The old blockchain was supposed to die.
A small part of the ethereum community continued to use the old blockchain. Critics of keeping the old blockchain alive say it allows the hacker potentially to sell the stolen cryptocurrency. It remains unclear whether that has occurred.
