What is Ethereum Classic?

Ethereum Classic is the original Ethereum blockchain. It's an open-source, peer-to-peer platform where developers can implement dapps and smart contracts.

Smart contracts are decentralised applications (dapps) that are made to run exactly as programmed without downtime or third-party interference, and Ethereum's popularity has seen it become one of the world's largest digital currencies. In June 2016, the decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO), a venture capital fund running on the Ethereum platform, was hacked and more than US$50 million was stolen. However, the Ethereum community was split on how to respond to the attack. Some wished to modify the code and return the ETH to its original owners – however, this goes against the core principle of blockchain immutability. The majority of the community favoured code modification, so Ethereum underwent a hard fork to revert the hack. However, a smaller section of the community decided to keep the main code exactly as it was, with this currency coming to be known as Ethereum Classic.

Ethereum Classic's native token (ETC) is used to fuel transactions on the network and is responsible for governance.
