About Ethereum Classic

Ethereum Classic is a cryptocurrency with a special focus on immutability, popularly expressed as “code is law.”

Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a decentralized, open-source blockchain network that came into existence in July 2016 after the Ethereum network experienced a hard fork, a change to the blockchain's protocol or basic set of rules, creating two separate blockchains: Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC). Though sometimes confused with Ethereum, Ethereum Classic is now a totally different cryptocurrency with different technological and philosophical goals, specifically focusing on immutability, popularly expressed as "code is law." Ethereum Classic was established to uphold the integrity of the original Ethereum blockchain in the wake of a substantial hacking incident. The network's primary role is to function as a smart contract network, facilitating the development and support of decentralized applications (DApps). ETC is Ethereum Classic's native currency, which is used to power transactions and smart contracts on its network. Ethereum Classic strives to preserve the original Ethereum blockchain without artificially reversing the consequences of the DAO hack. It operates on a proof-of-work (PoW) mining algorithm and does not intend to transition to a proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism like Ethereum did., Ethereum Classic is a decentralized computing system that can run a wide variety of applications.
