Parity Technologies issued a statement, according to which they do not plan to implement in their client code that could lead to a split of the Ethereum blockchain.
It was assumed that the EIP 999 would restore $ 264 million blocked on Parity wallet in November 2017 due to a discovered bug.
The statement, signed by the co-founder of the company Gavin Wood and CEO Jutta Steiner, says that she "does not intend to split the Ethereum chain," instead, "working with the community to find a solution."
We have all dedicated a great deal of time and effort to developing the ethereum ecosystem and have no intention of harming what we have helped build.
In the discussion of possible options for the restoration of frozen funds, the EIP 999 became the stumbling block, because of which people began to talk about the possibility of the early emergence of two parallel versions of the Ethereum blockchain.
Parity write that they "deeply regret" because the money of their users have been frozen, and they admit that they may still have a chance to return their funds.
The company assured the community that after the incident last year, it updated its security policies, including the process of developing smart contracts and signing an agreement with the audit company Trail of Bits.
