Ethereum Classic (ETC)

What is Ethereum Classic (ETC)?

Ethereum Classic is a fork of the original Ethereum blockchain and was created in response to the DAO attack of July 2016.

The reasoning behind the hard fork and creation of Ethereum Classic was to refund the roughly $50 million worth of Ethereum that was stolen during the attack.

Proponents of Ethereum Classic claim no hard fork happened and that Ethereum Classic is the real Ethereum blockchain.
