Ethereum Classic (ETC)

What is Ethereum Classic?

Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of fraud or third party interference. Ethereum Classic is a continuation of the original Ethereum blockchain - the classic version preserving untampered history; free from external tampering and subjective tampering by developers.

How does the Ethereum Classic Blockchain work?

The Ethereum Classic blockchain works in exactly the same way as the original Ethereum blockchain, with one key difference: censorship-resistant transactions are enforced. This means that miners must include all transactions in their blocks, regardless of whether they agree with them or not. This prevents powerful entities from censoring transactions they don't agree with.

What makes Ethereum classic different than other blockchains?

The main difference between Ethereum Classic and other blockchains is that it preserves untampered history. This means that any changes made to the blockchain (by developers) can be seen by all, and that no one entity has control over the blockchain.
